Single-Use Tangential Flow Filtration for Closed Processing



WEBINAR

Closed processing with single-use technologies is a critical enabler for efficient and robust manufacturing for novel modalities as well as continuous biomanufacturing processing. It can also reduce the dependence on classified clean rooms for traditional modalities. This approach helps to mitigate the risk of contamination by adventitious agents while enhancing operator safety.

In this presentation, we discuss the implementation of closed processing for downstream applications and present the design and performance testing of a single-use manufacturing-scale tangential flow filtration system to be able to operate in both functionally and fully closed mode.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The context of closed processing
  • Differences between closed and functionally closed processing
  • The drivers for adoption
  • Its practical implementation to a TFF step
