Leveraging real-time concentration data to increase accuracy with automated UF/DF for cGMP manufacturing

Live30 webinars are thirty-minute presentations designed to update you on the latest innovations, applications, and data in a fast yet interactive format.

For cGMP manufacturers of advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) focused on optimizing suites, the removal of risk factors is critical. Tangential flow filtration (TFF) processing that relies on upfront calculations or vessel concentration estimates, rather than real-time insights, produces a wide variety of challenges for operators. To combat the risks associated with faulty volume calculations, process variability, and batch inconsistencies, Repligen is expanding TFF innovation with a new series of integrated systems- the KrosFlo® RS RPM™ TFF system.

During this webinar, we will conduct an application note review examining an ultrafiltration/diafiltration (UF/DF) process using bovine serum albumin (BSA) to assess the capabilities of the KrosFlo RS 30 RPM TFF system. Powered by its integration with the CTech™ FlowVPX® spectrophotometer with variable pathlength technology, the KrosFlo RS RPM demonstrated concentration accuracies of over 30% compared to mass balance calculations.

In this webinar, you will discover:

  • How to leverage live concentration data in real time to enable automated process transitions during TFF operations
  • How real-time, in-line concentration measurement can increase accuracies by over 30% as compared to upfront calculations or vessel weight
  • How Process Analytics Technology (PAT) driven cGMP TTF systems enable operators to adapt for variability while limiting offline sampling and dilution
