Thermo Fisher’s new centrifuge technology is designed to enable efficient, sustainable cell culture harvesting.

Thermo Fisher Scientific recently announced the DynaSpin Single-Use Centrifuge system, a centrifuge that is specifically designed to provide optimal single-use solution for large-scale cell culture harvesting. The system aims to improve and streamline the process by reducing the number of depth filtration cartridges required to complete the harvest process.

According to a Sept. 28, 2022 press release, by reducing the number of filters required for harvesting, the DynaSpin offers upwards of six-fold reduction in material requirements. This is estimated to eliminate approximately 70% of waste compared to traditional harvest systems.

“We developed the DynaSpin system with an eye on efficiently harvesting biologics at large-scale,” said Srini Paluri, vice-president and general manager, Bioprocess Equipment & Automation, Thermo Fisher Scientific, in the release. “It was critical that the solution also consider the environment while outperforming traditional harvest solutions and delivering consistent product yields to our customers.”


The DynaSpin is designed for scalability, rapid changeover, reduced downtime, and lower risk of contamination to the workflow, according to the release. It also features configurable user access, audit trail, and batch reporting.
