The present invention relates to improved processes and systems for purification of biological molecules, where the processes can be performed in a continuous manner.


Patent
Millipore | Date: 2017-02-01

The present invention provides for a method of producing an integral multilayered porous membrane by simultaneously co-casting a plurality of polymer solutions onto a support to form a multilayered liquid sheet and immersing the sheet into a liquid coagulation bath to effect phase separation and form a porous membrane. The support can be a temporary support or form an integrated support for the membrane. The plurality of layers may be of the same polymer or different, same concentration or viscosity or different and may be subjected to the same processing conditions or different ones to form unique structures.

Millipore | Date: 2017-01-31

The present invention is an integral multilayered composite membrane having at least one ultrafiltration layer made by cocasting or sequentially casting a plurality of polymer solutions onto a support to form a multilayered liquid sheet and immersing the sheet into a liquid coagulation bath to effect phase separation and form a multilayered composite membrane having at least one ultrafiltration layer.


Chromatography media including a high surface area thermoplastic porous nanofiber and an ion-exchange ligand functionality on the surface of the fiber. The porous nanofibers display a convoluted structure that is comprised of discrete bundles of highly entangled nanofibrils that may be fibrillated or ridged. The porous fibers can be prepared through the extraction of a dissolvable mineral or polymeric porogen that is embedded into the fiber during its manufacture in a melt extrusion process.


Patent
Millipore | Date: 2017-03-02

A method for removing retroviruses from liquid samples and a nanofiber containing liquid filtration medium that simultaneously exhibits high liquid permeability and high microorganism retention is disclosed. Retroviruses are removed from a liquid by passing the liquid through a porous nanofiber containing filtration medium having a retrovirus LRV greater than about 6, and the nanofiber(s) has a diameter from about 10 nm to about 100 nm. The filtration medium can be in the form of a fibrous electrospun polymeric nanofiber liquid filtration medium mat.


A number of novel improved microfluidic configurations and systems and methods of manufacture and operation. In one embodiment, three wells are used for independent cell culture systems in a cell culture array. In a second aspect, artificial sinusoids with artificial epithelial barriers are provided with just one (optionally shared or multiplexed) fluidic inlet and one (optionally shared or multiplexed) fluidic output, where the medium output also functions as a cellular input. A pneumatic cell loader combined with other components provides a fully automated cell culture system. Magnetic alignment of plate molds provides advantages and ease of molded manufacture.

Millipore | Date: 2017-05-03

A fluid filtration device containing a composite filter media having a coarse porous polymeric nonwoven interlayer located between first and second polymeric fiber containing filter mats. The fiber diameters of the fibers in the first and second filter mats are different from each other, and each filter mat has a different pore size rating. The first and second polymeric fibers in the filter mats can be electrospun nanofibers. The interlayer has a coarser pore size when compared to the either the first or second filter mats, such that the resulting composite media has an increased dirt holding capacity compared to filter layers that are layered directly over each other without the presence of a coarse interlayer therebetween.


A method of filtering a liquid feed is described, comprising passing a liquid feed through a single pass tangential flow filtration (SPTFF) system and recovering the retentate and permeate from the system in separate containers. A method of filtering a liquid feed is also described comprising passing a liquid feed through a tangential flow filtration (TFF) system, recovering permeate and a portion of the retentate from the system in separate containers without recirculation through the TFF system, and recirculating the remainder of the retentate through the TFF system at least once. The methods of the invention can be performed using an SPTFF or a TFF system that comprises manifold segments to serialize the flow path of the feed and retentate without requiring diverter plates.
