A strategy for effective scale-up of filtration and single-use processes

Once a target molecule is identified, speed to market is everything but inconsistent scale-up of a single-use process between R&D and manufacturing can significantly delay a biopharmaceutical’s commercialization. With greater volumes of high value product being clarified and sterilized through filtration, it is key that these processes are scaled-up based on empirical data generated in laboratory studies to avoid premature filter fouling and loss of valuable product.

This webinar will explain how to successfully conduct a small-scale filtration trial using an automated single-use system at laboratory scale and describe the advantages this methodology provides. The webinar will also explore the benefits of single-use technology in both R&D and manufacturing settings and consider how to ensure successful implementation of single-use automation from laboratory-scale through to large-scale production.

This information will help biopharmaceutical manufacturers to plan a consistent single-use automation strategy at the laboratory-scale that will facilitate technology transfer and increase speed to market, while avoiding issues when scaling-up their filtration processes.

Register now for this webinar to learn how to avoid the pitfalls of inconsistent scale-up of filtration and single-use automation and ultimately ensure the success of your manufacturing process.
