In the pharmaceutical industry, ultrafiltration (UF) membranes are used extensively in the downstream purification of recombinant proteins or monoclonal antibodies. However, the fouling of membranes after a unit operation?especially when recombinant proteins or monoclonal antibodies are highly concentrated?is a common problem. Typically, normalized water permeability (NWP) of a membrane can be reduced to about 20 percent of its original permeability at the end of an ultrafiltration-diafiltration (UF-DF) operation.

The author shares a case example that applies an eight-step structured approach to the front-end engineering of a vaccine R&D fill-and-finish facility project. Assumptions, issues, action items, owner interface, and interdisciplinary coordination are covered to meet the challenges of timing, technology, compliance, and cost.
