Capacity for Success

There is hardly an area in pharma that has not been affected by tightening regulations and the need to keep costs low and productivity high. The bioproduction sector is now beginning to recognize these requirements, and has started to update their technology accordingly.

Centrifugation is a powerful tool, playing a critical part in the harvesting, separation and purification procedures of the bioprocessing workflow.
