Taking Medium and Feed Development Beyond Maximizing Protein Titer to Optimizing Glycan Distribution and Simplifying Process Scale-Up

This webcast features: Serena Fries Smith, Process Science Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific In the early 2000s when many processes were struggling to achieve 1 g/L, maximizing titers was the industry’s biggest challenge and was essential to having favorable cost of goods and an economically viable product. Over the last 10-15 years, the industry has made significant advances in media and feeds. Due to these advancements, today a standard fed-batch process can typically achieve 3 g/L and some processes are achieving…

Simulation and Optimization Software for a Chromatographic Step

This webcast features: Thomas Flouquet, Area Sales Manager/Application Specialist for low pressure chromatography BioSC® Predict is the first simulation and optimization software for the development of chromatography processes dedicated to the purification of biopharmaceuticals. Its innovation was recognized at the Achema 2015 Awards in the Pharmaceutical Engineering category. With a few clicks, the user can easily generate batch, parallel batch or continuous chromatography recipes and directly run them on BioSC® technology, with any adsorption media. BioSC® Predict is driven by…

Cell Culture Media Supplementation: Effects of Peptones and CD Supplements on Performance and Protein Quality

Biotherapeutic protein production is driven by cell line, cell culture media and supplementation, and bioprocess. While improvements in cell culture media and supplementation have enabled significant advancements in bioproduction titers, optimization to meet the specific needs of individual production cell lines continues to be a key factor to achieving desired production and protein quality. This is especially relevant to the ever increasing number of biosimilar therapeutics. Not only is it desirable to achieve a cost effective level of production, it…

Secondary Packaging: Creating Value with Product Lifecycle Management

This webcast features: Daniela Guttmann, Product and Service Manager at Vetter, and Susanne Hall, Team Leader of Secondary Packaging at Vetter. Factors such as new regulatory requirements (e.g. serialization) and expenses associated with secondary packaging have created significant interest in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). When incorporated early in the planning process, PLM can boost a product’s chance for success by helping to meet market requirements, and save costs. Watch the webcast on PLM for Secondary Packaging, and learn how it…

Production Scale Prepacked Chromatography for Use with 1000 L and 2000 L Bioreactors

This webcast features: Fletcher Malcom, Associate Director of Product Management at Repligen. The technical and economic benefits of ready-to-use, pre packed chromatography columns at bench- and small-scale have been proven and documented. The question remains: how do we scale up to production-scale? Now, for the first time, the new OPUS® 45 and 60 cm columns can purify a feed stream from a 1000L – 2000L bioreactor. This Ask the Expert webcast will show how the unique design of these GMP-scale…

2D DIGE Western Blot for HCP Detection and Coverage Determination: Advantages of Fluorescence over Colorimetric Detection

This webcast features: Jamina Fiedler, Head of 2D Analytics at BioGenes GmbH. Biopharmaceutical products need to be free of contaminating host cell proteins (HCPs) prior to approval and regulatory bodies ask for a clear and manifest proof that HCP assays are fit for purpose. The colorimetric 2D Western Blot method, although widely used for HCP detection and coverage determination, has several limitations. Using examples, webinar participants will learn how the use of fluorescent dyes can help overcome these limitations to…

A New Incompressible Protein A Resin to Improve Downstream Productivity in Single-Use Applications

This webcast features: Dr. Kiran Chodavarapu, Bioprocessing Business Development Manager at W.R. Grace. Implementation of single-use technologies and higher antibody titers upstream have put increasing pressure on downstream processes to improve efficiencies and keep pace with upstream advancements. There continues to be a lag in the development and adoption of single-use technologies in downstream – particularly in the area of chromatography. To help achieve the vision of a fully disposable and flexible manufacturing platform that addresses the current bottleneck in…
