How to Overcome Validation Challenges in a Single-Use World

While the popularity of single-use systems (SUS) is increasing, regulation of SUS supply chains is not. With increased regulatory scrutiny on supply chain security and risk mitigation strategies throughout the development and manufacturing of a therapeutic drug product, end users are scrambling to find ways to ensure the expected level of compliance. The solution? Sharing responsibilities across the entire supply chain. Validation must begin at the component raw material level and continue to final assembly. Primary parties – including drug…

Three’s Company: Formulation Prep and Stability Screening With Grunt, Lunatic and Uncle

The stability of biologics can be highly dependent on formulation pH. The pH can be screened by buffer exchanging proteins into a variety of buffer salts and running follow-up analytics to determine stability. Current practices for buffer exchange all have limitations. Dialysis requires a large excess of buffer and time. Centrifugal filters and desalting columns are faster, but require more hands-on time. Additionally, all three methods require dilution or concentration steps to reach target protein concentrations. Automating buffer exchange eliminates…

Buffer Selection in Biologics Manufacturing

They’re far less exciting than the life-changing treatments they help create, but buffers play a critical role in upstream and downstream biomanufacturing processes. ANGUS takes you backstage with “Buffers in Biologics Manufacturing” – an in-depth article co-authored by Dr. Dave Green, Vice President of R&D, ANGUS, that explores the important variables to consider when selecting the right buffer (and buffer supplier). And, when it comes to biomanufacturing, we know a thing or two about buffers. Why? Because we invented them.…

Single-Use Technology: The Next 5 Challenges to Conquer

Now that single-use technology plays a part in nearly all bio-production processes, what is next? Several challenges remain that are still serious enough to delay or even stop the use of single-use technology, which in turn can extend the time to market and increase the cost of lifesaving biopharmaceutical products. Of the existing difficulties, which five are the most critical? This paper considers five existing challenges in the implementation of single-use technology including scale, automation, product compatibility and compliance, speed…

Globalization of Single-Use and an Introduction to the Mobius® MyWay Portfolio

Single-use systems have enjoyed a meteoric rise in recent years and are fast becoming the go-to option for all but the biggest batches in the biopharma industry. But how do you get the most out of these exciting systems? Here, experts track the rapid evolution of single use systems, their impact on the industry and biomanufacturing, and how they will transform future manufacturing operations. Single-use is now becoming well established into an “age of optimization.” More than 90% of biopharma…

Single-Use Powder Containment for Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing

For many years, media and buffer ingredients used in powder form were transferred from stock containers using open scoops, weighed and mixed in buckets or open-top bags, and then carried in and dumped from those buckets or open-top bags directly into production vessels—based on the premise that sterility wasn’t required at that early stage of manufacturing. While much of this process was often carried out in a separate room from the production line to contain airborne contaminants, final transfer to…

BIOne – Single-Use Bioreactor System

Convert your existing benchtop glass bioreactor to a single-use bioreactor in seconds. Distek, Inc. has developed a benchtop scale single-use bioreactor (SUB) system for mammalian cell growth and recombinant protein production. The pre-sterilized BIOne system is engineered with a disposable headplate welded to a triple-layered liner that can be easily inserted into a non-sterile bioreactor glass vessel, converting it to a sterile, disposable SUB within a matter of seconds. Simply remove your existing headplate and place the preassembled and irradiated…
