LIVE LAB SESSION
 

Presentation: Cadence® BioSMB: Our Disposable Flow Path, Continuous Multi-Column Chromatography Solution
Marc Bisschops, Director SLS Continuous Bioprocessing, Pall Biotech
 

Since its introduction in 2010, continuous bioprocessing has been gaining significant momentum. The first clinical manufacturing campaigns have been successfully completed in 2019.
 

The key enabling technology for continuous downstream processing is multicolumn chromatography. The Cadence BioSMB technology by Pall Biotech is unique in its flexibility and its single-use flow path. This has made it one of the leading solutions in the field of continuous downstream processing. 
 

During the live lab tour, we will present the Cadence BioSMB PD system that is used for process development and process characterization. We will discuss the system architecture and how this translates into manufacturing scale in the Cadence BioSMB Process system.
 

TECHNICAL POSTER

A Road Map to Licensure for Multicolumn Capture in a mAb Process

Abstract: 

Application of multicolumn chromatography for affinity capture in process scale manufacturing of monoclonal antibodies has significant impact on cost savings from reduced sorbent and buffer requirements compared to conventional batch operation. A case study is presented investigating the Cadence® BioSMB system to support incorporation of multicolumn chromatography for capture into an existing commercial antibody drug platform. Here we take an approach that relies on modelling breakthrough curve data to derive process conditions that demonstrate multicolumn chromatography can achieve capture efficiency and product quality consistent with current process specifications. By leveraging mechanical stability of the sorbent, we demonstrate multicolumn chromatography can operate within time constraints for capture with only 7% of the sorbent volume currently required for processing. A risk based approach is then explored to identify aspects relevant to column performance, bioburden management and process integration. In this approach, data from both single column and multicolumn experiments help us to better characterize the space for operation and provide justification to satisfy requirements for regulatory submission.
 

Looking forward to meeting you!

Presentation: "Accelerator Process Development Services: Your Journey to Industrialization Starts Here"
Marco Sanvito, Senior Regional Marketing Manager, Pall Biotech (Italy)

 

Abstract

The journey to commercializing a therapeutic is a complex and challenging one. It is filled with tasks that include ensuring patient safety, building a product portfolio, working with regulatory agencies, achieving economies of scale on a process typically designed at the academic level, defining a product platform, and addressing fluctuating demands – all while keeping down costs. With the ever-shrinking pool of resources and technical expertise, these can be daunting tasks to achieve. At Pall, we understand the issues you are facing, and while we may not be able to solve all your journey’s challenges, what we can do is help to minimize the risk. We deliver a robust, reproducible and scalable process that helps you move beyond laboratory scale process choices to those that are proven to support industrialized processes. Using our global centers of excellence and our industry leading technology, we specialize in designing, optimizing and transferring scalable processes from pre-clinical to validated cGMP manufacturing.



Take some time to see us at presenter sessions throughout the event. We look forward to meeting you!
