Thermo Fisher Scientific today unveiled the Thermo Scientific DynaSpin Single-Use Centrifuge system at theĀ BioProcess International annual conferenceĀ in Boston, MA. The system is specifically designed to provide an optimal single-use solution for large-scale cell culture harvesting. The DynaSpin system improves and streamlines harvesting for cell culture separation in single-use bioprocesses by reducing the number of depth filtration cartridges required to complete the harvest process. The DynaSpin solution delivers equivalent or improved product yield compared to traditional harvest systems while enabling operational efficiency, cost savings and sustainable practices in the production of biologics.

The DynaSpin system helps reduce overall production costs while allowing biologic manufacturers to support their sustainability goals. By reducing the number of filters required for harvesting, this product offers upwards of six-fold reduction in material requirements, eliminating 70% of waste compared to traditional harvest systems.

In addition to the optimized design and smaller equipment footprint, the DynaSpin system incorporates the well-documented advantages of single-use products including scalability, rapid change over, reduced downtime and lower risk of contamination to the workflow. The ergonomic design of the system provides ease of access for system operation and maintenance, including loading and unloading the single-use rotor and line set assembly. DynaSpin brings automation technology not previously available in single-use solutions for harvesting. It provides configurable user access, audit trail and batch reporting, allowing the users to meet 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
