  • Publication number: 20170369853
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for purification of a virus or virus antigen comprising providing a virus preparation and centrifugation of said virus preparation in a gradient of a sugar established by the addition of two or more buffered sugar layers of different concentration. The method leads to higher yields and reduces unwanted aggregation of the virus or virus antigen by increasing the volume of the peak pool.

  • Publication number: 20170260498
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for removing a viral contaminant from a preparation, being a cell culture medium or at least a component of a cell culture medium. The method comprises subjecting said preparation to filtration for at least about 24 hours through a virus filter having an effective pore size of maximum about 75 nm. Further, the invention relates to the use of a virus filter in filtration of at least about 24 hours, wherein the virus filter has an effective pore size of maximum about 75 nm for the removal of viral contaminant from a preparation, being a cell culture medium or at least a component of a cell culture medium. In some embodiments the filtration according to the invention operates at a volumetric capacity of at least about 2000 L/m2.
