Solutions for Biosimilar Purification Process Development

We have solutions for efficient and cost-effective methods that enable researchers to demonstrate high similarity to the approved reference originator biologic.

Biosimilar Purification Process Development

Producing a drug product at a lower cost than that of the originator is a huge challenge for the biosimilar developer. To identify the best purification strategy and migrate it from lab to process scale requires a reliable stream of workflow components from instruments to resins and columns. Costs must be controlled by designing a purification strategy with the least number of steps while retaining the purity, efficacy, and structure of the biosimilar.

The NGC Chromatography System along with Bio-Rad chromatography resins enable fast and easy screening of methods and components when designing a purification strategy for biosimilars. The modular NGC System allows addition of new capabilities as you move from discovery to scale up. Software tools for scouting and multidimensional (Multi-D) chromatography automate both discovery and scale-up processes and improve reproducibility.

Bio-Rad chromatography resins can be utilized in a variety of applications, including size exclusion, ion exchange, HIC, mixed mode, and affinity chromatography. Resins are available in multiple formats, including plates, columns, and in bulk and are designed to facilitate small- to commercial-scale purifications.
