Performance Period: 1/15/2020 to 5/31/2021
ChromaTan has developed Continuous Countercurrent Tangential Chromatography (CCTC) to overcome the limitations of traditional column chromatography. Although CCTC has shown outstanding performance for fed-batch continuous downstream operations, further development is needed for long-term continuous processing. The objective of this project is to commercialize a new device format called the spiral sorter into process development within the CCTC framework by utilizing additive manufacturing tools, hydrodynamic modeling, scale up, pilot scale Protein A antibody capture campaigns and economic analysis. We project that this new approach (CCSC) would save end-users 70-80% off their clinical purification costs and enable robust and steady-state continuous purification for long-term operations. The proposed 1-year effort will evolve manufacturing readiness level of this technology from MRL 4 to MRL 5. The deliverables of the projects if successful will be used for a larger multi-organizational proposal that will evolve the technology from MRL 5 to MRL 8.
