Michael Bransby, the SpectrumLabs.com Director of Process Technology, participated in a webinar hosted by Precision Nanosystems, Inc. “Downstream Processing of Nanoparticle Formulations” is the second of three webinars in the series, “Scale-Up Nanoparticle Production”.

In the webinar, Mike explains the basics of Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF), and the need for shear rate calculations in TFF. Mike ran lipid nanoparticle optimization experiments with Precision Nanosytems to highlight variances in shear rate and transmembrane pressure when creating the optimal TFF process for the user’s sample.

Spectrum Labs created a calculator app that provides users the ability to easily calculate flux and shear rate for all their TFF needs. The app includes an easy to use part number search with data sheets related to our products.
