Merck launches new Viresolve Pro Shield H parvovirus removal system

27th September 2016

Merck has announced the launch of a new viral clearance solution for use in the removal of parvoviruses from therapeutic protein feed streams.

Viresolve Pro Shield H is designed for use as a prefilter with Viresolve Pro devices and works to remove protein aggregates and impurities from virus filters in high-pH and high-conductivity monoclonal antibody feed streams.

Combined with Viresolve Pro Device parvovirus retentive filters, Viresolve Pro Shield H significantly increases processing capacity for biopharmaceutical manufacturers, while preserving high virus removal and flux levels.

Typically, these kinds of feed streams can be challenging to process efficiently because proteins tend to aggregate during production. Aggregates can cause virus filters to foul more rapidly, reducing the amount of feed that can be processed and increasing the number of filters needed to process the same volume.

Andrew Bulpin, head of process solutions, strategic marketing and innovation at the life science business of Merck, said: "As feed stream characteristics continue to change, filtration products must evolve in order to enable successful viral clearance to ensure drug safety."

The firm also launched a new range of Steritest Symbio Pump system accessories to accelerate and streamline sterility testing workflows earlier this month.
