Perfusion – Do’s And Don’ts To Cut Production Costs, Increase Efficiency

As biologics originator companies race to keep costs low, biosimilars manufacturers need to be able to match or even beat the cost-efficiencies to compete as blockbuster biologics come off patent. Using a perfusion approach can reduce costs by up to 20 percent compared with fed-batch processes, but it's important to remember that there are a number of different parameters tied up with the do’s and don'ts of perfusion, and these all need to be balanced for successful and cost-effective production.
