ABEC increases the maximum capacity of its Custom Single Run Bioreactors to 4000 L, doubling the industry standard.
ABEC, a provider of integrated solutions and services for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, announced on July 10, 2017 the release of single-use bioreactors with production volumes of 4000 L. The company reports that it is the only supplier able to provide single-use bioreactors with capacities greater than 2000 L.
The 4000-L capability enables a reduction in capital, facility, and disposables cost by doubling cell culture capacity in approximately the same floor space. The number of systems and disposable containers needed is cut in half, and facility size is reduced.
The 4000-L CSR Bioreactor has demonstrated performance comparable to stainless steel systems, a key feature of the company’s Custom Single Run (CSR) product line. Features of the line include large production volumes, performance comparable to stainless steel systems, seamless process transfer and scale-up, rapid container loading, and a non-proprietary supply chain, the company reports.
