Multi-Product Facility Realized by Modular Automation Platform

This webcast features: Dr. Burkhard Joksch, Product Manager, Bioprocess Automation at Sartorius Stedim Biotech GmbH, and Dr. Stuart Tindal, Product Manager, FlexAct® Platform at Sartorius Stedim Biotech GmbH

Multi-product facilities need modular package units to realize fast change-over without reducing product quality and process performance. Smart modular package units such as the FlexAct® platform can run pre-qualified and pre-tested recipes, users can rapidly integrate Sartorius Stedim Biotech’s and other manufacturers’ single-use technology in bioprocess operations, achieving faster installations with reduced downtime. The platform can be configured for maximum flexibility to control up to six different unit operations in a single process skid for buffer and media preparation, cell clarification, crossflow filtration, virus inactivation and retention at processing volumes ranging from 15 L to 2,000 L.

This process methodology is a foundation to enable the BPOG technology roadmap statement that the biopharmaceutical industry should aim for a drastic reduction in capital expenditure, manufacturing costs, product changeover and new facility build times in the next decade.
