Biotech companies are running into production bottlenecks because standard purification and separation technologies lack the capability to remove the elevated levels of biomass from high titer solutions. Recent developments in filter technology offer the biotech industry a cost-effective solution to processing challenges by reducing bottlenecks, thereby accelerating the time-to-market of new drugs.
The drive to develop better, faster, and smaller — in other words, more efficient — products is a universal trend in the modern world. This trend has profoundly impacted many industries from microelectronics to packaging equipment. In the biopharmaceutical industry, the need to speed and simplify the long and complex drug manufacturing processes brings additional challenges, such as meeting regulatory requirements.
