Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched its CHT prepacked Foresight Pro Columns, designed to support downstream process-scale chromatography applications across different stages of biological drug development and production.
Foresight Pro Columns are manufactured in a controlled ISO Class 7 cleanroom, providing good manufacturing practice (GMP)-ready columns. These columns are packed with CHT Ceramic Hydroxyapatite Medium, a rigid mixed-mode support with unique separation properties used for the purification of biomolecules. The prepacked columns’ standardised design and format offer a more cost-effective and flexible solution than customer-packed options and are available in a range of diameters and bed volumes.
“The Bio-Rad Foresight Pro Columns provide the biopharmaceutical industry with a convenient solution to improve the productivity of downstream bioprocessing from the early phases to the manufacturing-scale process,” said Dr Khaled Mriziq (Bio-Rad Senior Global Marketing Manager, Process Chromatography, Life Science Group). “Our prepacked GMP columns deliver consistent performance and eliminate the customer’s need to pack, qualify and validate the columns.”
