FiltXPO to discuss filtration and separation solutions

Feb '20
Experts will present the innovative filtration and separation solutions, driving the evolution of biopharmaceutical manufacturing, at FiltXPO International Filtration/Separation Exhibition and Technical Conference, to be held during February 26-28 in Chicago. There will be five presentation on the latest research on technologies, materials, and processes.

In addition to biopharmaceuticals, the conference will provide in-depth coverage of air and gas filtration, filter media modeling, membrane technologies, nanofibre, separating and manufacturing, and water filtration by 35 industry-leading speakers.

The biopharmaceutical session will be chaired by Ruben Carbonell, chief technology officer – NIIMBL and professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, North Carolina State University. Carbonell will also speak on high productivity nonwoven membrane adsorbers for biological product capture.

There will be a keynote presentation on Next Generation Technologies to Support Advanced Biomanufacturing by Michael Phillips, technical director of Next Generation BioProcessing R and D at MilliporeSigma. In his talk, Phillips will share work being done by BioPhorum, a collaboration of industry leaders in the global biopharmaceutical industry, on a new vision and strategy for supporting more connected and continuous processing of new biotherapeutics that reduces costs, increases speed, and eliminates bottlenecks.

Providing a preview of where the sector is heading will be Francis Porbeni, product/application development specialist at 3M who will speak on Materials Development for Next Generation Biopharmaceutical Process Filtration. Porbeni will share how novel high-performance purification devices are helping meet the complex needs of biopharmaceutical manufacturers by removing significant levels of host cell protein and DNA from the bioprocess stream while also providing high throughput titer and process intensification.

Other talks include Innovative Filtration Technologies to Address Evolving Challenges in Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing by Mandar Dixit, director of Marketing, Filtration Technologies, Sartorius Stedim Biotech, and Progress and Future Potential in Monolithic Chromatographic Resins in Bioseparations by Ales Strancar, CEO, BIA Separations.

FiltXPO will also have an exhibition featuring 200 innovators and the Filter Media Training Course led by Chris Plotz, INDA’s director of education and technical affairs.
