A Q&A With Dr. Helene Pora, Ph.D., Senior Director, Single-Use Systems, Pall Life Sciences
When single-use started, it was all about media and buffer preparation and storage. It is now moving into very sophisticated applications, especially when we touch on licensed cell culture and final formulation and filling. The main challenge is how to address the quality standards that have existed for years with stainless steel systems and adapt them into single-use. Some approaches that work with stainless steel don’t work with single-use. Read more.

Automated, Single-Use Purification Platforms In Biopharmaceutical Production By Karl G. Schick, Ph.D., VP of R&D, SciLog Inc.
The use of disposable bioreactors and single-use purification platforms for normal flow filtration (NFF), tangetial flow filtration (TFF), and preparative chromatography have received significant attention in years. Up to very recently, the use of single-use purification platforms was limited almost exclusively to manually operated systems. Read more.
Richard Bhella, ATMI global product manager, explained how ATMI is leveraging the use of single-use bag technology in their mixers, bioreactors, and storage systems. Watch video.
Filtration Processes Applied In Vaccine Production
All vaccines have at least two common elements: they must be immunogenic and they must be produced in a highly purified form, able to be safely administered to recipients. Typically, vaccines are produced to treat the general population, however, vaccines can also be tailor-made to treat specific individuals. Read more.
