Novel systems for membrane chromatography

6 Mar 2019

Optimally run membrane chromatography processes will provide higher productivity, smaller-scale operations and increased robustness.

Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB) and Novasep France, have entered into a collaboration agreement regarding chromatography and single-use bioprocessing. Novasep provides various products and services to the life science industry, based on specialized technologies. In particular, this company is a recognized system provider with substantial expertise in the design, manufacture and control of resin-based batch and continuous chromatography systems.

Novasep’s established BioSC platform and SSB’s single-use technology will form the basis for the development of innovative chromatography systems. Systems currently on the market are designed for resins, but do not take full advantage of membrane chromatography capabilities. Optimally run membrane chromatography processes will provide the most attractive alternative to batch and continuous resin-based chromatography - namely higher productivity, smaller-scale operations and increased robustness.

Systems designed for membrane chromatography applications are a part of SSB’s global product strategy to supply complete solutions for upstream and downstream processing in life sciences. “Membranes are the embodiment of process intensification. As the market leader in membrane chromatography, SSB aims to realize this potential and offer customers the full benefits of our Sartobind portfolio,” explained Dr Fritjof Linz, Head of Separation at SSB. “We are happy to work with a highly competent partner like Novasep to introduce new membrane chromatography technology for flow through and capture applications,” the Sartorius manager added.

Nadège Laborde, President Process Solutions at Novasep, commented: “This collaboration is a wonderful opportunity for Novasep and SSB, as it leverages the core capabilities of the two companies. The result of this venture will satisfy the latest market demands for continuous processing, process intensification, performance, and ease of use.”
