NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today introduced new innovations in cell culture and bioprocessing technologies to address the evolving requirements of biologic drug discovery and production for global biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical manufacturers. These advancements, including a new high-volume centrifugation system and controller platforms for its next-generation single-use bioreactor, will be showcased this week at INTERPHEX, Jacob Javitz Convention Center, New York City, March 18-20, 2014, Booth #3544.

“Thermo Fisher has combined exceptional technologies with a deep understanding of the challenges of bringing biologic pharmaceuticals from discovery to development and production,” said Cory Stevenson, president of the bioprocessing business at Thermo Fisher. “The combination of Thermo Scientific single-use technologies with the cell culture, purification, and analytics capabilities under the Life Technologies brand increases our depth of capabilities so that we can provide our biotechnology and biopharmaceutical customers with integrated solutions. Doing so enhances their efficiency and productivity across the entire bioproduction workflow.”

Highlights at INTERPHEX include:

  • New Thermo Scientific bioreactor controller platforms for the Thermo Scientific single-use systems offer the choice, performance and flexibility. Developed with technology integration partners Applikon and Finesse and under the Thermo Scientific brand, the controllers meet the needs of both highly configurable cGMP and cost-effective research applications.
  • New Thermo Scientific Sorvall RC BIOS 10 large-capacity centrifuge offers a new 10-liter capacity for batch bioprocessing centrifugation. The system combines the centrifuge with carbon fiber rotors and paperless data collection software, to improve productivity and protects sample safety and integrity.
  • Life Technologies products that span the biologics workflow and include a portfolio of premium solutions and services focused on upstream cell culture, downstream purification and analytics for detection and quantitation of process/product impurities and contaminants. Products on display include Life Technologies Gibco cell culture media and feeds in both liquid and AGT Dry Media formats, GoPure Prepacked and POROS A, G and CaptureSelect Chromatography Columns, and MycoSEQ Myccoplasma Detection System.
  • The industry-leading Thermo Scientific Aegis5-14 Film, the most advanced film for demanding cell culture and single-use bioprocessing applications.
  • The Thermo Scientific HyPerforma Single-Use Bioreactor (SUB), which offers all of the advantages of previous SUBs while offering advancements that make it easier to manage tubing systems and loading of single-use Thermo Scientific bioprocess containers. The SUBs also feature faster heat up and cool down, flexible positioning, and height-adjustable single- or dual-filter brackets.

The combination of Thermo Scientific’s single-use and bioprocessing technologies with the cell culture, purification, and analytics business from Life Technologies increases our depth of capabilities so that we can provide our biotechnology and biopharmaceutical customers with integrated solutions across the entire bioproduction workflow.
