How Robust Virus Removal Techniques Can Help Prepare For The Unexpected

Perspectives For The Clearance Of Emerging Viruses

Biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes require a holistic virus safety strategy to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases by viruses. Especially manufacturers of plasma-derived medicinal products (PDMPs) face increased challenges in meeting these regulatory requirements as the main raw material is of human origin and may therefore be contaminated with pathogens that can cause direct infections in patients.

In this webinar, Michael Lasse, PhD, Product Manager Virus Clearance, discusses these challenges as well as the points to consider when implementing virus safety concepts. He also presents the benefits of virus filtration when establishing effective and reliable virus clearance steps within PDMP production. In addition, he emphasizes the importance of robust, scalable virus clearance technologies such as Virosart® HC for the removal of emerging viruses like SARS-CoV-2.
