This study demonstrates the potential of integrated continuous bioprocessing as a universal platform for the manufacture of various kinds of therapeutic proteins. Integration of upstream and downstream unit operations results in the significant simplification of the entire process train due to elimination of non-value-added hold steps, dramatically shorter residence and cycle times, reduction of equipment size, and overall facility minimization.
