The Feasibility of Tangential Flow Filtration for Cell Lysate Clarification

September 15, 2005

Is it realistic to believe that tangential flow filtration (TFF), commonly used for concentration, desalting, buffer exchange, and protein fractionation, is now a viable alternative to centrifugation for cell harvest and cell lysate clarification? A new generation of membranes expands the possibilities for TFF as an economical, efficient, high-yielding process substitute, according to this case study’s author.
