cost-effective solution to debottleneck downstream processes by combining the selectivity and capacity of traditional chromatography at high flowrates
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
The Natrix platform is the first ever chromatography system that is truly single-use and disposable. It features significant advantages in process productivity, flexibility and cost for bind-elute capture and flow-through purification applications. At Gallus, Natrix technology enables the achievement of a completely single-use manufacturing operation.
Natrix Separations SVP Product Development, Howie Honeyman, commented, “Natrix is thrilled to work closely with Gallus on the scale-up of the Natrix Advective™ Chromatography platform for cGMP settings. The exceptional combination Gallus’ expertise and Natrix’s unique chromatographic process tools will provide exciting long-term benefits for Gallus and their customers.”
Paul Jorjorian, Gallus’ Purification Manager, was equally enthusiastic about the Natrix partnership, “The Natrix technology offers a cost-effective solution to debottleneck downstream processes by combining the selectivity and capacity of traditional chromatography at high flowrates. The technology promises to provide game-changing enhancements to the protein capture environment while also driving down the cost of flow-through purification steps.”
