Cytiva launches Xcellerex Automated Perfusion System for more efficient manufacture of biotherapeutics

Cytiva, a global life sciences leader, is introducing an innovation to the market that supports the biotech industry’s move to continuous manufacturing. Called the Xcellerex Automated Perfusion System (APS), it simplifies processes and reduces risk when intensifying upstream operations.

In cell cultivation using perfusion, media is continuously fed and product harvested. This increases output compared to traditional batch or fed batch methods, yet perfusion processes still involve substantial manual work and risk. Overcoming this challenge by simplifying and automating upstream operations would alleviate bottlenecks further along the perfusion process, increasing overall productivity and output.

Olivier Loeillot, Senior Vice President BioProcess, says: “Simplifying upstream bioprocess workflows is one way we deliver on Cytiva’s mission to advance and accelerate therapeutics. Along with our end-to-end flexible manufacturing solutions, automation technology and trusted expertise, we have introduced Xcellerex APS to support the industry’s journey to integrated continuous manufacturing.”

Xcellerex APS system integrates with Cytiva’s Xcellerex XDR bioreactors for continuous upstream bioprocessing operations. The system’s automation capabilities include automated filter switching, liquid management and cell bleed, which reduces risk for human error and increases process robustness.

The continuous manufacturing market for biologics is estimated to be valued at USD 310 million in 2030 representing a CAGR of 23% (2020 – 2030) . Over 50% of more than 200 companies polled in 2020 by independent market analyst, BioPlan, were found to be planning to actively or informally evaluate continuous upstream technologies in the next 12 months .
