    3M™ SoluPrep™ Film-Forming Sterile Surgical Solution an Advanced Surgical Skin Prep Solution Aiding in Patient Infection Prevention

    10/9/18: The new product leverages 3M’s expertise in polymer and adhesive technology in the form of a proprietary 3M™ Prep Protection Film.

    3M Enhances the Emphaze™ AEX Hybrid Purifier

    9/7/18: “Customer input is critical in evaluating the performance and effectiveness of any product to maximize performance,” said Himanshu Nivsarkar, Global Marketing Manager, 3M Separation and Purification Sciences Division. “With the Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier, customers experience benefits in typical monoclonal antibody purification processes, including nominal 30% HCP and greater than 4 log DNA reduction. It has a consistent output turbidity (<5 NTU) leading to potential downsizing of the sterilizing grade membrane and increased product purity post-protein A. This also reduces turbidity post viral inactivation/neutralization step leading to a lower impurities load on the downstream AEX column, thus allowing customers to optimize their processes.”
