Find an optimal harvest solution by considering both cost and sustainability. Driven by the need to support the production of high-intensity cell cultures of higher volumetric scales, the demand for performance efficiency at each step of bioproduction has grown in tandem. When a manufacturer decides on what technology to use, multiple methods can be applied to help facilitate the harvest step of bioprocessing. The purpose of harvest is to separate the product of interest from the remaining cell debris and particulates left in the bioreactor medium following the upstream process. The drug substance is then run through a series of downstream clarification steps to remove any unwanted aggregate or particulate that may be left over from earlier upstream processes. Learn how the Thermo Fisher Scientific’s DynaSpin single-use centrifuge is emerging as an exceptional technology by creating cost savings while also being a more sustainable solution.
