3M Purification’s new purification technology platform, under the 3M Emphaze™ brand, is designed to help biopharmaceutical manufacturers achieve high product purity early in the manufacturing process, improving efficiency and process economics. The new 3M™ Emphaze™ AEX Hybrid Purifier, the first in a series of chromatography and membrane chromatographic products, combines three unique 3M technologies — advanced polymer materials, fine fiber nonwovens, and membranes — to deliver an all-synthetic clarifying product line containing both a novel anion exchange nonwoven media, and a fine particle, bioburden reduction membrane. The 3M Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier Laboratory and Scale-up capsules are now available with the Production capsules to be launched at the end of the year.

“The 3M Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier is a multi-mechanism clarifying device,” said Tom Martin, Global Business Manager, Life Sciences Process Technologies, 3M Purification. “This product actually represents a new class of clarifying products, with an all-synthetic construction, substantial chromatographic capability, and a defined 0.2 μm pore size.”
The product is an integral combination of two types of media (Q-functional nonwoven and membrane) that work together to provide unsurpassed product purity after clarification when using a single unit operation. The defined pore size of the qualifying membrane provides tremendous removal of insoluble particles well below 0.1 µm in size, resulting in superior turbidity reduction. At the same time, the high chromatographic capacity of the Q-functional nonwoven provides substantial reduction of negatively charged, soluble impurities including DNA and HCP. This combination of attributes allows the hybrid purifier to provide superior product purity before and, most importantly, after the protein A column, enabling a novel and simple post protein A mAb purification process.
“We designed the 3M Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier to provide the highest possible level of product protein purity early in biopharmaceutical downstream process. What is truly exciting is that by targeting the removal of particularly problematic impurities from entering the protein A column, a profound impact on the entire downstream process can be realized,” said Greg Jellum, Global Laboratory Manager, Life Sciences Process Technologies, 3M Purification. “This new product platform is a tremendous demonstration that 3M’s materials-based technology engine will enable true innovation for our industry.”
The 3M Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier offers a loading capacity similar to fine grades of highly-charged conventional depth filters, and can easily be incorporated into existing manufacturing processes where such a depth filter would be used. The 3M Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier will be encapsulated in 3M’s signature single-use capsule design, thereby providing the opportunity to minimize capital in a matched component harvest solution. By providing the best possible protection of valuable downstream unit processes, the technology holds significant potential for improving efficiency in the production of mAb drugs for conditions including various cancers, as well as autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and Psoriasis.

After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists l...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
