Sterile Filtration Learning Center

Request Information


In order to obtain a purified vaccine, a host microorganism or cell is grown, and the target antigen is separated, purified, formulated and sterilized. The wide range of vaccines and resulting diversity of feed stocks challenge manufacturers to maximize product yield and process efficiency while assuring product safety and sterility.

To meet these challenges, EMD Millipore offers a complete range of products and services to help you get your vaccine to market quickly. We can address your needs for validation services, conduct process audits, develop product specific integrity tests and optimize your process to meet demand. We also have an in-house Vaccine Process Research Lab dedicated to the development of new technologies and best practices.
