Purification

Maximum Flexibility & Minimum Turnover Time

Samsung Biologics’ cGMP Drug Substance Downstream Purification consists of two facilities with the newest equipment for cGMP operations, including chromatography (e.g., affinity, ion-exchange, multi-modal), viral filtration, ultrafiltration/diafiltration (UF/DF), and formulation and bulk filling operations. Both facilities consist of physically segregated pre-viral and post-viral suites designed for maximum flexibility and minimum turnover time.

Industry Leading Automation Solutions

Each downstream facility can be adjusted to accommodate all customer process needs. All purification facilities are classified as Grade C or higher. The design minimizes opportunities for cross-contamination with physically segregated pre-viral and post-viral suites containing equipment dedicated to cleaning areas and a Grade B bulk fill room. Three separate column packing suites support optimization of production cadence. The high-capacity buffer preparation suites are designed for temperature control and contain hold tank sizes to handle buffer preparations up to 15,000 L. The downstream suites are equipped with chromatography skids, columns, UF/DF skids, virus filtration skids, and Grade A (laminar flow booth) bulk filling capacity as well as product pool vessel capacities from 200 L to 15,000 L to handle a wide range of pool volumes and high protein titers. Our purification process is supported by industry leading automation solutions.
