LOGOBioprocess intensification leads to more efficient, flexible, and cost-effective biopharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. Single-use systems designed for continuous operation facilitate process intensification.

Pall Life Science’s Cadence™ BioSMB PD platform is the first disposable flow path, continuous multicolumn chromatography solution that is fully scalable from a process development laboratory to good manufacturing practice (GMP) manufacturing. It provides an economically viable, disposable chromatographic solution for even the most demanding and costly chromatographic steps.

During multicolumn countercurrent (also known as simulated moving bed, or SMB) chromatography, all chromatographic steps normally run in a batch mode are conducted simultaneously in different “zones” (Figure 1). Chromatographic media reaches full lifetime within a campaign through rapid cycling, making disposable use of even the most expensive chromatographic media possible.
