Workshop on Expanded Line of Chromatography Resins for Every Need, from Small Organic Biomolecules to Column Free Purification of Monoclonal Antibodies

Alessandra Basso will present the Chromalite range of products, including IEX analytical HPLC, PuroPhase for SPE, RP and IEX for industrial chromatography. The macroporous family of polydivinylbenzene and methacrylic resins of varying porosity, surface area, and functional groups is suitable for purification of molecules up to 6KDa. Hans J. Johansson will give an update on recent developments of the Praesto range of agarose-based chromatography resins. The presentation will focus on Protein A, pre-activated, and jetted resins with a very narrow particle distribution. Oleg Shinkazh, CEO of Chromatan Corporation will present on the new type of protein A resin that was developed jointly with Purolite to exploit the unique capabilities of Continuous Counter current Tangential Chromatography (CCTC) -  a new column-free continuous purification platform for mAbs, vaccines and other biologics.

Workshop on Non-Invasive Investigation on the State of the Column during Cleaning-In-Place

Diabetes API purification processes are the biggest RP silica-based HPLC applications. The diabetes API peptides are prone to self-aggregation and fibrillation. The fibrillate renders the expensive columns useless too soon needing to discard the stationary phase. Desperate efforts are made to regenerate/clean the silica. However, only the most aggressive NaOH wash does the trick and cleans off the fibrillated peptides from the top of the column. Do we clean the column enough by following the CIP SOP or are we "over-cleaning" causing further damage? Here we present newly developed analytical tests and make possible the optimization of the CIP step.

Workshop on Chromatography Strategies for the Removal of Product-Related Impurities

Join us for an interactive discussion of new developments in purification and chromatography strategies for removal of product-related impurities. As biotherapeutics become more diverse, technologies are evolving to address these new opportunities and maximize overall efficiencies.  Attend this workshop to learn about the interactions between chromatography resins and diverse biomolecules, approaches to develop effective purification schemes, and case studies with focus on product‑related impurity removal--dimers, aggregates, and charge variants.  There will be an opportunity to engage with industry professionals and discuss your current separation challenges. Pre-register at Booth 313 by 10:40 AM on Monday, July 17.

Workshop on Address Bioburden Challenge and Enhance Productivity in mAb Processes with Improved Downstream Tools

Bacteria and their byproducts can negatively affect the safety and potency of a biopharmaceutical drug. At a minimum, bioburden contaminations lead to reduced productivity as a result of lost batches and/or deviation investigations. Striving towards a bioburden-free process, biopharmaceutical companies and their suppliers must collaborate. This workshop will focus on the commitment from GE Healthcare and will describe the continuous improvements in downstream bioprocess equipment and consumables, further Protein A resin development to withstand high NaOH concentrations and investigation of an oxidizing agent for sanitization.

Workshop on How to Model, Simulate and Scale-up Your Chromatographic Processes

ChromWorks© is the chromatography simulator made by users for users to help develop downstream process. Through this user-friendly tool, you can understand, scale-up, simulate and assess your processes. We see how to get the most from your data to deepen process understanding and design efficient units. Based on typical therapeutic proteins production stream, affinity, ion-exchange and size-exclusion chromatography are modeled. Making use of our toolbox to estimate physico-chemical parameters, we show how to use these to simulate various processes including single-column, SMB and template-free-user-defined systems. It will be shown how computer-based process development not only accelerates process design but also helps reducing the experimental effort.

New Developments in Stationary Phases for Preparative Chromatography

Kromasil materials are used in a variety of applications for the purification of low molecular weight pharmaceuticals, peptides and larger molecules.  Key benefits of using Kromasil is its mechanical and chemical stability as well as its availability in a wide range of particle sizes, so methods can be developed in the early stages of discovery with our slurry prepacked columns and scaled up for development and manufacturing with our bulk, saving critical resources and time to market.  During this workshop we will present new developments in stationary phases of key interest for chromatographers as well as application examples.

Workshop on Increasing Productivity of Downstream Processes – Purification Tools for Even the Most Demanding Biotherapeutics

The manufacture of complex biotherapeutics requires novel purification strategies without compromising the economic aspects of the process. The POROS® and CaptureSelect™ affinity resins offer unique performance attributes and drive benefits to downstream processing. CaptureSelect ligand technology addresses protein purification challenges and provides a platform approach by introducing a highly selective capture step. These affinity resins help enable reduced time-to-market, increased purity and yield, and reduced cost of goods for biopharmaceutical drug development. Here we present our unique purification solutions, designed for the discovery and manufacturing of therapeutic molecules and vaccines, including challenging proteins, antibodies, antibody fragments and viral vectors.
