|Objectives||It is difficult to optimize a process when using only one piece of equipment, as each vaccine production area will work on multiple kinds of cells. Especially primary separation of the broth will depend on : - composition of culture media - type and size of the cells (viruses, bacteria) Operating mode : - biomass recovery w/o cells lysis - use of buffer solutions, washing the cells Furthermore, separation units must be cleanable in place and steam sterilised.|
The tangential filtration equipment uses some INSIDE CéRAM™ Micro- or Ultrafiltration ceramic membranes.
– a filtrate
– Microfiltration allows a perfect biomass recovery whatever the size and weight of the cells.
