Biotechnology Equipment and Materials

By Elli Karampela

Biopharmaceuticals have radically changed the pharmaceutical landscape due to their high efficacy levels and minimal side effects. They have revolutionised the treatment of conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and plaque psoriasis.

Niche biotechnology-derived drugs require the use of new cell culture techniques, as well as innovative equipment and manufacturing processes. The growing prominence of biopharmaceuticals has, therefore, increased the demand for faster and safer biotechnology equipment.

Top-rated biotechnology equipment manufacturers

Pharmaceutical Technology has compiled a list of the leading suppliers of biotechnology equipment and materials based on its knowledge and experience in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors. The list includes suppliers of bioprocessing solutions, 3D culturing and stem cell platform technology, bioanalytical systems, thermal analysis equipment, lab monitoring solutions, and peristaltic pumps and tubes.

The information in the download document is designed for facility engineers, quality validation engineers, automated equipment engineers, product development engineers, chemical engineers, process control technicians, biomedical equipment engineers and managers, and process designers.

The download contains detailed information on the suppliers and their product lines, as well as contact details, to help you with your purchasing decision.

Equipment and materials for biotechnology companies

Biopharmaceuticals are derived from microbial cells, mammalian cell lines and other cell cultures. Biotechnology companies use them to produce vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, thrombolytic agents and therapeutic enzymes.

Selecting the correct equipment for the synthesis, purification and production of biopharmaceutical products is essential to ensure their efficacy and safety. Biotechnology companies use a wide range of equipment to meet their pharmaceutical production needs, including:

  • Bioreactors and controllers
  • Bioreactor software
  • Cell retention systems
  • Sensors and monitors
  • Purification and screening equipment
  • Filtration systems
  • Disinfection systems and accessories
  • Sampling systems for bioprocess monitoring
  • Homogenisers and homogenising systems
  • Oxygen sensors

High production costs, supply chain issues, new manufacturing techniques and regulatory scrutiny are some of the main challenges that biotechnology companies face when developing biopharmaceuticals. Improving operational efficiency by making the best possible use of equipment and adopting new and flexible systems such as hybrid systems will help biopharmaceutical companies improve their product innovation and reduce costs.
