About the webinar

The biopharmaceutical industry has been able to provide advanced therapies for rare diseases that were once considered untreatable by leveraging genetic engineering technology and employing the intrinsic biochemical mechanisms of bacterial and mammalian cells. However, throughout the production process, these valuable cells are lost through apoptosis, autophagy and mechanical shear, ultimately reducing the final yield.

The biopharmaceutical industry has seen extraordinary expansion over the last few years and with societal changes — such as an aging population and the advent of sophisticated diagnostic techniques — the need for biopharmaceuticals continues to grow. To meet these rising demands, a greater volume of therapeutics needs to be produced on a global scale. Improving cell survival throughout the workflow can be an effective way of increasing productivity and yield.

If you are involved in the production of biopharmaceutical drugs and therapeutics, you likely recognize the immense impact cell viability has on your final output and how increasing cell survival rates can both improve efficiency and reduce your total costs.

Masterflex® has developed a range of tools and solutions to support your entire biopharma workflow, resulting in better cell health and cell survival throughout the production process.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How fluid shear impacts cell viability and production cost
  • How pumping technology can enhance your fermentation yield
  • How to incorporate automation to improve productivity
