CaptureSMB; How does it work – twin-column capture LPLC technology and practical application


Webinar Details

Technology to increase productivity in the capture chromatography step during the purification of bio-molecules (e.g. mAb) by 2 to 3-fold while reducing Protein A and buffer usage by up to 50% will be presented in this 30 minute presentation. Animations to illustrate the technique will quickly provide the webinar attendees with insight of how the process mimics conventional batch LPLC purification – but allows continuous chromatography. Economics of the process as applied to mAbs will illustrate the impact of incorporating the patented CaptureSMB process on plant productivity and cost-reduction. Information on scale-up and GMP scale equipment presently in use at multiple biopharmaceutical companies will be shown.
