Expert Insight: How to rapidly harvest mammalian cell cultures with body feed filtration

Join this expert webinar to find out all you need to know about an innovative new method for tackling the first step of mAb purification

30 Aug 2019


Cancer research is an increasingly complex field and in the area of monoclonal antibody (mAb) production, many hurdles can be presented, starting initially with the analysis of a multitude of clones in small volumes. After the identification of interesting candidates, larger cell culture volumes are needed, and the expression levels of mAbs are assessed and maximized in cell line development. While there are many solutions on the market for growing mammalian cell cultures of 15-1,000 mL to high densities in parallel reactors or as shaker flask cultures, their purification can lead to a production line bottleneck. One time-consuming hurdle is the clarification and sterile filtration of a high-density culture before further processing.

In this webinar, Dr. Noushin Delmdahl, head of product management lab consumables at Sartorius Lab Instruments, will present an innovative new method for tackling the first step in mAb purification - body feed filtration. This method of filtration is facilitated by the addition of diatomaceous earth (DE) as a filter aid, and has been used in the plasma and food/beverage industries for years.

Watch this live webinar if you would like to learn about:

  • Harvesting high-density cell cultures from 15mL-1,000mL in only minutes
  • The application of body feed filtration for fast, clean and reliable filtration of high-density mammalian cell cultures
  • The comparison of body feed filtration with traditional centrifugation and subsequent filtration step in terms of mAb recovery, turbidity of cell culture and charge heterogeneity of the clarified molecules

The webinar takes place on Thursday, September 12, 2019, at:

  • 16:00 BST 
  • 11:00 EDT 
  • 08:00 PDT 
  • 17:00 CEST

All webinar participants can request a certificate of attendance, and a learning outcomes summary document for continuing education purposes.
