Magnetic Bead Removal Using Microcarrier and Cell Separation System

Magnetic Bead Removal Using Microcarrier and Cell Separation System

Inconsistent results and deviation are major issues in cell therapy manufacturing, primarily resulting from historically manual methods, scarcity of proprietary tools, and lack of operator training. With this difficult process also comes another hurdle–time. Providing a safe vein-to-vein transmission is critical when a patient is waiting (in many cases) for lifesaving therapy. How can we bridge the gap between speed, quality, safety, and consistency?

Minimizing Filter Plugging: A Guide for Biologic Contamination Control Technologies

Within the life sciences industry, controlling biological and micro contaminants in process streams is vital to improving operating efficiency and the enablement of technological advances such as modern drug development and monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Sterile filtration plays a critical role in protecting vital bioprocesses and is the cornerstone in eliminating contaminants. But what happens when a filter gets plugged and how can you minimize impact on filtration performance?

Entegris and Kuhner Shaker: Orbital Shaken Bioreactors and Single-Use Bags

Entegris is proud to collaborate with Kuhner Shaker in the development of a 2500 L single-use bag that could exceed their complex requirements while meeting their production needs at scale. Delivering a reproducible product every time, with the ability for specialized applications across scales is what Entegris does best, and this joint effort is no exception. Kuhner evaluated several bag designs for robustness in their 30-day shaking process that were not able to meet the requirements. The Entegris design not only met the need for 30 days of use but was still going strong over 100 days of continuous use.

Fire and Smoke: Outdoor Air Quality and Your Fab

Summer is the perfect season to enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family. Unless, of course, the air is filled with smoke and ash. The color-coded air quality readings too often go beyond the red danger zone into purple, with an Air Quality Index (AQI) of over 200 parts per million (ppm) of particulate contamination. This particulate count is far above what is safe even for healthy adults. In many parts of the western U.S. and beyond, purple air has become far too familiar.

Creative Architectures for the Storage Class Memory Yield Ramp

The explosion of data generation has been accompanied by a corresponding explosion of memory storage technology options. The array of acronyms is astounding—NAND, DRAM, SRAM, MRAM, PCRAM—and finding the right option can be complicated. For applications that need nonvolatile memory with high switching speed and fast data access, storage class memory (SCM) can be a perfect fit.

How to Minimize Risk for Short-term or Long-term Frozen Storage of Biologics

Like Benjamin Franklin once stated, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This could be said for mitigating risk to storage of your biologics too. Even the slightest temperature change from a freezer door being opened and closed numerous times to setting alarms off while searching for product hidden inside can compromise drug product. Losing time and money over product can be prevented. Here are some tips to keep your biologics viable in both long- and short-term freezer storage.

How to Reduce Cryo-concentration With World-class Tools in Freeze/thaw Process

Protecting your product throughout the freeze/thaw process can be a delicate task. Freeze too slowly, your proteins may aggregate and degrade. Thaw in a water bath, you might encounter contamination. Most commonly, cryo-concentration, where your protein is not evenly distributed throughout your frozen container, poses a risk to critical product quality attributes. There are countless ways improper freeze/thaw processes can ruin sensitive therapeutics and cell and gene therapies, but the proper tools can help you reduce cryo-concentration and bioburden while achieving the best return on investment and optimization of your process.
