3M, the science-based technology company, has commissioned the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) to conduct in-depth research into their Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier, a single use plug and play filter matrix.

3M, the science-based technology company, has commissioned the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) to conduct in-depth research into their Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier, a single use plug and play filter matrix.

The collaborative project will be split into two studies, carried out independently by NIBRT, with results expected early 2018. The first study, which is currently underway, is examining the effect of chromatographic clarification on host cell DNA, and the specific type and quantity of host cell proteins removed prior to downstream processing.

The second study will build on the first study and investigate if gains in performance are possible from optimizing the load conditions for the device.

Dr. Jonathan Bones, the Principal Investigator at NIBRT, highlighted the research as important for investigating the value of the Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier to the biotechnology industry. 

“I am excited to be working with 3M on this project,” said Bones.
