Over the past several decades, the single-use (SU) systems-based manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals has been directing towards more extensive batch volumes and higher cell concentrations. This has created a demand for SU filtration technologies that can handle high solids concentrations without sacrificing high flow rates and filtrate quality. At the same time, it has become even more crucial to have SU mixing solutions that provide uniform mixing and gas transport while also inducing low shear forces.

In this webinar, it will be discussed how DrM can provide solutions to both of the aforementioned issues. The first part focuses on the CONTIBAC® SU filtration technology, introducing the concept, scale-up, and comparison with competing technologies. In the second part, in-depth data will be presented about the performance of the filter, such as flow rates and the filtrate quality. In the third and final part the FUNDAMIX® SU mixing technology will be introduced, along with some numerical simulations and process scale-up considerations.
