Single-Use or Stainless Steel Separators

PMPS: Remind us why separators are vital within pharmaceutical production lines?

Dr Markus Kühberger: Separation is a key process step in biopharma applications. Centrifugal separation technology provides solutions in areas such as enzymes, hormones, human blood proteins, mammalian cell culture, pharmaceutical proteins, starter cultures, and vaccines. Let’s face it, certain cancer medicines, vaccines, and other treatments that must be absolutely pure and fully traceable back to source, could not be produced without the use of a top quality disc-stack separator. Furthermore, to give the topic a very current flavour, without single-use devices the invention and development of COVID-19 vaccines in such incredibly short timescales would not have been possible.

What should pharma companies be looking for in a separator?

Pharma biotechnology requirements are very demanding and include aseptic process management, optimum cleaning capability, closed product handling, compliance with GMP, gentle product treatment, the efficient recovery of active ingredients, and reliable scale-up. To meet these requirements, pharma companies should always be looking for a supply partner that can offer technology and equipment designed specifically for their needs.

Choosing the Right CMO for HPAPI Manufacturing

AMRI

Over the past few years a steady stream of contract manufacturing organizations (CMO) have added high potency active pharmaceutical ingredient (HPAPI) production capacity. The expansions give biopharma executives charged with selecting HPAPI production partners an unprecedented number of options, but all this choice creates a problem — which CMO should you pick when each is touting similar technical capabilities?
