A prospective to develop affordable biologics for society

To maximize the productivity in the first capture step is a key to intensify the whole downstream process and would also be important to respond the upstream process intensification such as high cell density fed-batch and perfusion cultivation processes.

Cytiva’s Fibro technology is a complete disposable solution and expected to dramatically reduce process time, equipment scale and change over time, so those could contribute to the total cost reduction of biologics manufacturing.

We have evaluated the prototypes of Fibro Protein A both in lab scale (0.4 -4 mL device) and pilot scale (160 mL device) including the cycle lifetime study. We have understood both benefits and challenges of Fibro Protein A to implement it into the actual manufacturing facilities. In the webinar session I would like to share our evaluation data and discuss how and when we could effectively use Fibro Protein A through the biologic process development and manufacturing lifecycle.
