Best Practices: Membrane Technology Options
Lowering the cost of medication is the key to the US gaining a stronghold on the global pharmaceutical market. As anyone knows, in order to lower the cost of medication, the cost of manufacturing will need to be lowered as well. According to Chris Smalley, Ph.D., director of validation compliance at Merck, single-use technology (SUT) could be the hero.

With Cell Culture Flask Adapters, the culture can be centrifuged directly in the flask. Data illustrates that cell yield, cell viability, and endpoint analysis results are comparable when cell cultures are processed traditionally or centrifuged directly in the flask using Cell Culture Flask Adapters.
A selection of fluid management components from GE Healthcare’s ReadyToProcess platform of disposable and single-use equipment was used to arrange buffer and sample management solutions for four typical large-scale chromatography setups.
Early stage application of affinity chromatography in downstream processing is acknowledged as a desirable objective with the potential to increase yields and reduce the overall cost of goods.
This application note describes the rapid development of a production process for a biosimilar molecule expressed in E. coli. Screening of modern chromatography media for downstream purification was done either with small packed columns and an ÄKTA avant system or with PreDictor plates (96-well pre-filled filter plates).
This application note will discuss the topic of size resolution in particle characterization and advantages and disadvantages of various techniques.
Recent trends in biomanufacturing technology and the biopharmaceutical market are supporting the increased adoption of single-use (SU) manufacturing systems. On the demand-side, the biopharma industry is focusing on niche and rare diseases with smaller patient populations, resulting in the need for smaller, more agile biomanufacturing capacity. By Jodi M. Zobrist and Nicole W. O'Brien, Ph. D., Gallus Biopharmaceuticals, LLC
