From Discovery to Production
Bringing the biologic from discovery to development and production demands exceptional technologies and expertise. Thermo Fisher offers a deep understanding of the complex relationship between single-use film, cell culture media, single-use bioreactors and the biological systems used to produce vaccines and biologics. Highlights of Thermo Fisher's presence at Interphex include:
The new Thermo Scientific Aegis5-14 Film is the company's most advanced film for the most demanding cell culture and single-use bioprocessing applications. Engineered for use across the entire spectrum of Thermo Scientific single-use technologies from bioreactors to mixers to bioprocess containers, the Aegis5-14 Film is built on its industry-leading Thermo Scientific CX5-14 film, with application across a broad range of biomanufacturing functions.
For smaller volume applications, the Thermo Scientific HyPerforma Single-Use Mixer DS 300 offers an efficient, cost-effective single-use docking station mixing solution, combining the performance, flexibility and economy required for pilot-scale applications.
The new Thermo Scientific Collaborative Technologies offering provides analytical testing services for numerous applications, including media customization and process optimization.
Also on display will be the industry-leading Thermo Scientific HyPerforma Single-Use Bioreactor, as well as storage and transport solutions, single-use consumables and Thermo Scientific centrifuge and Thermo Scientific Fiberlite carbon fiber rotor technology for scale-up to process development quantities.
Technology Workshop: Best Practices for Single-Use Films & Goods presented by Thermo Fisher Global R&D Director Michael Goodwin on Wednesday, April 24, Room 1E07.
