Alfa Laval launches the first premium separator system for single-use biopharma processing

14 Apr 2020

The CultureOne separator system uses product-contact parts that are replaceable and made from recyclable material.

Alfa Laval has launched a unique separator system, Alfa Laval CultureOne, for single-use processing in the biopharmaceutical industry.

All product-contact parts in the separator system can be replaced after each batch, which limits the need for onsite cleaning and sterilization, and eliminates the risk of cross-contamination, thereby increasing process hygiene and safety, as well as significantly improved turnaround time.

In addition, all product-contact parts are made from recyclable material, which chimes with the company's claims that its innovative technologies are "dedicated to purifying, refining, and reusing materials".

The Alfa Laval CultureOne separator system will be used in processes for harvesting fragile cell cultures which later can be used for injectable drugs for treating life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and organ transplant rejection.

Nish Patel, President of the company's Food & Water Division said: "Now we can offer a premium separation technology for more effective production of smaller batches of targeted treatments. It is beneficial for our customers and society."
