Systems Compliance: A Risk-Based Approach to Software Management

This webcast features: Martin Laferriere, Director, IT Systems Compliance, Avid Bioservices Software systems risk management and evaluations should be part of your validation process. It is possible to reduce testing by documenting your risk, actual use, regulation impact, evaluating vendor(s), etc. The approach to managing the risk evolves through audits and prior experience and can tailor the management and approach to system quality within each organizations. In my experience and observations, an efficient system risk management is essential, and it…

Using Slope Spectroscopy for Faster, Repeatable, More Accurate Protein Concentration Measurements

This webcast features: Joe Ferraiolo, Bioanalytics Applications Manager, Repligen Traditional capture chromatography titer measurements that involve dilution requirements represent the highest single source of error in traditional UV analysis. Slope spectroscopy requires no sample preparation or dilution, saving substantial time without changing any other aspects of the assay. This webinar will demonstrate how variable pathlength slope spectroscopy using the SoloVPE™ device can significantly reduce sample prep and process time, while maintaining high repeatability and accuracy.

Highly Sensitive Host Cell Protein Analysis Using µPAC™ LC-MS

This webcast features: Dr. Koen Sandra, Scientific Director, Research Institute for Chromatography Within a rapidly growing biopharmaceutical market, there is an increasing demand for the development of a rising number of biotherapeutic protein drugs, such as monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). During the development and production of biotherapeutic proteins, typically using mammalian cell lines, such as Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, additional proteins are expressed as well by the host cell. These so-called host cell proteins (HCPs) will need to be removed,…

Cell Culture Media Analysis Using a Handheld Raman Analyzer with Onboard Chemometrics

This webcast features: Orville Dean Stuart, Technical Regional Sales Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific This webinar presents the use of a handheld Raman analyzer with onboard chemometrics to verify the identify and monitor the quality and batch-to-batch variability of both dry powder chemically defined media and ready-to use liquid cell culture media. While scans of cell culture media using Thermo Scientific’s TruScan RM handheld Raman analyzer produce spectra with good Raman features, due to similar constituents and formulations, the TruTools add-on…

Investigation of Hitchhiking Impurities Removed by the 3M EMPHAZE AEX Hybrid Purifier

This webcast is hosted by: Dr. Hani El-Sabbahy, Biopharmaceutical Application Engineering Specialist, Separation and Purification Sciences Division, 3M United Kingdom PLC 3M™ Emphaze™ AEX Hybrid Purifier is an all-synthetic clarifier consisting of a high capacity Q-functional hydrogel and a 0.2 μm polyamide membrane. The open structure and high charge capacity can handle turbid feeds, resulting in soluble and insoluble contaminant removal. Using data generated by sophisticated LC-MS/MS techniques, this webinar will explore the impact of deploying the Emphaze AEX Hybrid…

Packing Rigid POROS Chromatography Resins: Efficient and Fast Method to Get Optimal Results

This webcast features: Dr. Anna Le Bris, Senior Application Specialist, Bioproduction, Thermo Fisher Scientific POROS resins are widely used in commercial bioprocesses for the purification of large molecules, in both the capture and polish steps of downstream processing. POROS chromatography resins are based on a rigid polymer, allowing them to withstand very high pressure and be mechanically and chemically stable. Because POROS is a rigid bead, it can be packed in cGMP columns with volumes up to 1000 L. POROS…

Robust Performance of OPUS® Columns Pre-Packed with CHT™ Resin

This webcast features: Fletcher Malcom, Product Line Leader – Chromatography, Repligen Ceramic hydroxyapatite (CHT™) resins are used in processes where unique selectivity is desired for purification of mAbs or recombinant proteins. Until recently, shipping columns pre-packed with CHT™ resin provided challenges due to the fragile nature of the chromatographic bed. To overcome these challenges, Repligen has developed a proprietary packing method for CHT™ resins which maintains chromatographic performance during transit. In this presentation, packing performance and shipping validation data will…

Scalable Purification Strategies for Viral Vectors and Vaccines

This webcast features: Mark A. Snyder, Ph.D., R&D Manager, Process Chromatography Applications, Bio-Rad Laboratories Large-scale downstream processing of viruses can face a range of obstacles different from those of many biotherapeutics. These challenges mostly arise from the size and complexity of the virus, which can affect product purity and recovery. Improvements of purification tools are necessary to overcome these challenges and must be engineered for easy scalability to meet manufacturing demands. Dr. Mark Snyder will discuss the difficulties when developing…
