HERCULES, Calif.—Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a global leader of life science research and clinical diagnostic products, today announced the launch of its CHT™ prepacked Foresight Pro Columns, designed to support downstream process-scale chromatography applications across different stages of biological drug development and production.
Foresight Pro Columns are manufactured in a controlled ISO Class 7 cleanroom, providing good manufacturing practice (GMP) ready columns. These columns are packed with CHT Ceramic Hydroxyapatite Media, a rigid mixed-mode support with unique separation properties used for the purification of biomolecules. The prepacked columns' standardized design and format offer a more cost-effective and flexible solution than customer-packed options and are available in a range of diameters and bed volumes.
"The Bio-Rad Foresight Pro Columns provide the biopharmaceutical industry with a convenient solution to improve the productivity of downstream bioprocessing from the early phases to the manufacturing-scale process," said Khaled Mriziq, PhD, Bio-Rad Senior Global Marketing Manager, Process Chromatography, Life Science Group. "Our prepacked GMP columns deliver consistent performance and eliminate the customer’s need to pack, qualify, and validate the columns."
