Single Use Applications in Continuous Biopharmaceutical Processing

Single Use Applications in Continuous Biopharmaceutical Processing

04/18/2018, 3:15 PM - 4:00 PM

Technical Conference Stage 2, Booth 1177, Exhibit Hall


Implemented and developing trends in the biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry respectively include single use technology (SUT) and continuous bioprocessing. The overlap of these technologies has a significant impact on facility design and operation. A model process based upon a typical monoclonal antibody process was developed and evaluated. Production unit operations considered bioreactors, biomass removal and clarification, chromatography, ultrafiltration and cartridge filtration. Major impacts to the supporting systems media preparation and hold, and buffer preparation and hold are highlighted. This presentation presents options based upon currently available SUT systems for conversion of traditional batch bioprocessing to continuous bioprocessing. Potential SUT options were evaluated, focusing on operational scale, facility impacts, automation and operational considerations. Opportunities for bridging technologies will also be presented.
