Single-Use Depth Filtration for Mammalian Cell Culture Clarification

Clarifying cell culture broth is the first downstream unit operation in an elaborate sequence of steps required to purify a biological therapeutic. A combination of centrifugation, depth filtration, or tangential-flow filtration (TFF) is used for that operation. The availability of large-scale, single-use, depth filtration technology in the recent years, however, has given process developers the capability to improve and simplify downstream processes.
