    How Can You Mitigate The Risks Of Single-Use Bags?

    The loss of product as a result of bag failure isn’t just an annoyance; it’s an expense, and a costly one at that. However, Chuck Hart, director of manufacturing at Prolong Pharmaceuticals, says with proper fitting and handling, these concerns can be mitigated.

  • Making The Switch To Single-Use: Have You Thought Of Everything?
    Making The Switch To Single-Use: Have You Thought Of Everything?

    In 2014, Prolong Pharmaceuticals followed through with a decision to build a facility for the scale-up of their lead product, SANGUINATE. As part of this decision, the new facility would not utilize Prolong’s traditional manufacturing process and would instead switch to one that uses single-use technology (SUT) almost exclusively. Chuck Hart, Prolong’s director of manufacturing, recently sat down with me to discuss some areas he feels are sometimes overlooked when switching from traditional stainless steel to SUT.

Emphaze™ AEX Hybrid Purifier Emphaze™ AEX Hybrid Purifier

The Emphaze Hybrid Purifier is a new single-use clarifying device containing a multi-mechanism all synthetic Q-functional anion exchange media integrated with a fine particle, bioburden reduction membrane. The anion exchange media is comprised of a quaternary amine hydrogel supported by a fine fiber nonwoven scaffold. A combination of 3M technology platforms enables the hyperfunctionalization of a high purity polypropylene nonwoven with a covalently attached, thermally stable, water soluble polymer; the functional polymer accounts for roughly two-thirds of the mass of the anion exchange media. The bioburden reduction membrane is a highly asymmetric, high loading capacity polyamide membrane which has nine zones of decreasing pore size spanning a roughly 20X range and terminating with a 0.2 μm bioburden reduction rated pore size.
