Bioproduction plays a major role in the creation of new materials, molecules and especially pharmaceutical products. In this Bioprocessing & Biopharma section we focus on single-use technologies which have rapidly become a major technology in bioproduction.
Hamilton has recently introduced the intelligent Incyte Arc sensor. It offers on-line viable cell density measurements in real-time paired with integrated intelligence that leverage Hamilton’s proven Arc technology, saving space and cost.
Parker Bioscience Filtration has come up with a solution to the danger of cross-contamination when bulk filling products and introduces the SciLog FD system.
Biopharmaceutical manufacturing is increasingly shifting towards the application of single-use equipment. Hamilton develops dedicated single-use sensors to facilitate process control.Single-use bioreactors such as bags or stirred-tank reactors are common in upstream bioprocessing and production.
Single-use technology has now been established as the major technology used within global bioproduction facilities. While several challenges still remain, they are becoming less of an issue as the industry moves forward. Graeme Proctor, Product Manager Single Use Technologies at Parker Bioscience Filtration, discusses some of these.
GE Healthcare has developed Fortem™ film, a technology for creating a platform of single-use bags for all stages of bioprocessing. It succeeded in making a multilayered film with high performance on all levels, no compromises.“With Fortem film technology, we’ve really taken a step forward in the life cycle management.
Cell culture media and buffers are an important factor in bioprocessing. Where media determine cell growth and upstream productivity, buffer concepts determine downstream footprint and efficiency. How can optimal formulation and formatting of these essential materials help to produce better and cheaper medicines?
Bioprocessing technology is traditionally a batch-process technology. Cells are grown in a closed bioreactor for a few weeks and then harvested. Manufacturers have been working on making this a continuous process, particularly with regard to column chromatography for purification. Experts from four companies in the field will give a glimpse.
A varied program attracted quite a few visitors to the Single-Use Event, which was recently held for the first time as an independent event.
There is no way that the bioprocess industry can escape far-reaching digitalisation. It is not only a matter of replacing local PCs by web-based applications; all components of the process are linked and automated. The result is faster and better processes at less cost.
A great deal is taking place in the bioprocessing industry. Plastic disposable drums are replacing the old-fashioned steel drums and traditional batch processes are being completely restructured. Five companies talk about the most recent developments in this industry.
Single-use bioproduction is advancing enormously and now offers numerous advantages over production in stainless steel drums. However, a disconcerting side effect of single-use bioproduction is the creation of a mountain of plastic waste. That is detrimental to the environment. Is it not?
