Biotherapeutics, such as antibodies, have been successful in treating many life-threatening diseases. However, these therapeutic proteins are expensive and sensitive to harsh production conditions, driving the need for alternatives in antibody purification. A significant proportion of costs arise from the protein A capture step during manufacturing. Lumatix Biotech is developing an innovatively controlled affinity matrix, allowing cost effective and mild purification of classic antibodies as well as a wide range of antibody formats. First purification systems will be designed to address small-scale manufacturing processes and will be available for selected customers in 2021.
