Improving Sterilising Filtration in the Biopharmaceutical Industry

Sponsored by: Parker Hannifin

Focused on:

    Date: 4 June


    Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

    In the changing world of single-use

    Sterile filtration has been a cornerstone of bioprocessing for over 60 years and as the industry continues its change from stainless steel to single-use, filtration has also evolved, moving from cartridge to capsule format with several membrane types to choose from. This webinar aims to provide an overview of filtration in bioprocessing addressing key considerations when developing a biopharmaceutical manufacturing process.

    During the webinar we will discuss why sterile filtration is used instead of other methods of sterilization in bioprocessing before examining what makes a good filter membrane and what validation is required during the membrane development process. This will lead into filter selection considerations for different bioprocess applications.

    The webinar will then go on to discuss filter integrity testing. We will look at different options available and how they are linked to validation to ensure your filtration process has been successful. We will also consider trouble shooting steps when integrity testing does not go to plan.

    Register today for this webinar to begin optimizing your biopharmaceutical filtration processes to guarantee the quality of your product while reducing costs.
