Have you ever wondered how vaccines and therapeutics are manufactured? Not surprisingly, creating and preparing biopharmaceutical drugs is a complicated process that requires a very high level of purification. We hear from two experts in 3M Separation and Purification Sciences who break it down for us in the What’s Next at 3M podcast. Here are some highlights:
Biopharmaceutical therapies come from genetically engineered cells that need to go through a complex purification process.
Manufacturing biological vaccines and therapeutics has traditionally required 15 to 20 steps to achieve the necessary purity.
By optimizing the manufacturing and purification process, drug makers can decrease the number of steps needed while increasing the yield of these biopharmaceuticals.
3M makes filters and membranes which are used in biopharmaceutical purification and also a variety of other applications from beverage production to blood oxygenation and dialysis.
Gene therapy provides new hope for people with genetic disorders and also creates new challenges for purification because these therapies often utilize a virus.
