Tangential flow filtration (TFF) using ultrafiltration membranes are commonly used for the final formulation and
concentration of monoclonal antibodies. Injection of liquid formulations is often the preferred method of administration
for these therapeutics. In cases where high dosages are required, manufacturers frequently target high concentration liquid
formulations which can result in high viscosity solutions. In ultrafiltration cassettes, specifically the pressure drop from the
turbulence promoting feed screen, can limit the maximum achievable concentration at this stage. This talk presents a novel
ultrafiltration feed screen designed for the efficient processing of high concentration applications. This seminar demonstrates
that the novel feed screen with proper operation methodology allows end-users to achieve higher product concentrations and
