Validating Virus Clearance in a Single-Use System Part 1: Film Adsorption and Virus Inactivation Studies

October 1, 2018

This article explores the use of single-use mixing technology in a detergent-based virus inactivation step during a monoclonal antibody production process.

Single-use technology offers a number of benefits over traditional stainless-steel equipment, but manufacturers must be confident that single-use technology is appropriate for their most critical and aggressive processing steps. In this study, the use of a single-use mixing technology was evaluated and characterized for the performance of a detergent-based virus inactivation step during a monoclonal antibody production process.
