The OPUS (Open Platform User Specified) line extension is being introduced in response to rising market demand for disposable technologies in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. OPUS pre-packed, single-use plastic chromatography columns are suitable for process-scale, multi-cycle purification of biologics such as monoclonal antibodies, proteins and vaccines. The OPUS product line is unique in providing customers with an open platform to accommodate an unprecedented range of options in chromatography media, column sizes and bed heights.
The scalability and immediate "plug-and-play" usability of OPUS columns increases facility flexibility and can improve the speed of process development and reduce the cost of biopharmaceutical manufacturing by decreasing the set-up, cleaning and validation times associated with traditional purification technologies.
