Biopharma Production


Each stage of bioprocessing is influenced by the steps preceding it. You're constantly striving to achieve higher production yields, which influence manufacturing costs. It’s important to consider the following:

  • Selecting the correct expression system
  • Choosing the right medium and feed for your bioreactor to achieve maximum cell density and productivity
  • Capturing, clarifying, and concentrating the target protein efficiently
  • Obtaining the purified protein through downstream processes
  • Packaging the protein formulation during final fill in the required configuration

Avantor’s bioprocessing solutions focus on what matters most for your operations. We provide a unique combination of industry expertise with the broadest portfolio of products and materials engineered and manufactured to satisfy the highest quality standards and regulatory requirements for your final product – whether it is a vaccine, monoclonal antibody, recombinant protein, cell therapy, or gene therapy.
