Cell Therapies Roundtable: Building the Pillars to Success

In order to deliver cell-based therapies on a commercial scale, cell therapy companies and suppliers must form partnerships in order to overcome existing manufacturing, regulatory, and analytical challenges. Four leading cell therapy experts discuss what is and what has to be done in order to accomplish this objective.

Single-Use Depth Filtration for Mammalian Cell Culture Clarification

Clarifying cell culture broth is the first downstream unit operation in an elaborate sequence of steps required to purify a biological therapeutic. A combination of centrifugation, depth filtration, or tangential-flow filtration (TFF) is used for that operation. The availability of large-scale, single-use, depth filtration technology in the recent years, however, has given process developers the capability to improve and simplify downstream processes.
