3M Purification Inc. Key Developments

3M Introduces the Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier

3M Purification announced that the company will unveil a new purification technology at INTERPHEX 2014 designed to help biopharmaceutical manufacturers achieve high product purity early in the manufacturing process, improving efficiency and process economics. The new 3M(TM) Emphaze(TM) AEX Hybrid Purifier combines three unique 3M technologies -- advanced polymer materials, fine fiber nonwovens, and membranes -- to deliver an all-synthetic clarifying product line containing both a novel anion exchange nonwoven media, and a fine particle, bioburden reduction membrane. The new 3M(TM) Emphaze(TM) AEX Hybrid Purifier combines three unique 3M technologies - advanced polymer materials, fine fiber nonwovens, and membranes - to deliver an all-synthetic clarifying product line containing both a novel anion exchange nonwoven media, and a fine particle, bioburden reduction membrane. The product is an integral combination of two types of media (Q-functional nonwoven and membrane) that work together to provide unsurpassed product purity after clarification when using a single unit operation. The defined pore size of the qualifying membrane provides tremendous removal of insoluble particles well below 0.1 um in size, resulting in superior turbidity reduction. At the same time, the high chromatographic capacity of the Q-functional nonwoven provides substantial reduction of negatively charged, soluble impurities including DNA and HCP. This combination of attributes allows the hybrid purifier to provide superior product purity before and, most importantly, after the protein A column, enabling a novel and simple post protein A mAb purification process. The Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier offers a loading capacity similar to fine grades of highly-charged conventional depth filters, and can easily be incorporated into existing manufacturing processes where such a depth filter would be used. The Emphaze AEX Hybrid Purifier will be encapsulated in 3M's signature single-use capsule design, thereby providing the opportunity to minimize capital in a matched component harvest solution. By providing the best possible protection of valuable downstream unit processes, the technology holds significant potential for improving efficiency in the production of mAb drugs for conditions including various cancers, as well as autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and Psoriasis.

3M Purification Brings New Technology, New Water Dealer Tools to WQA Aquatech USA

3M Purification will showcase a suite of new resources for its 3M Authorized Water Dealers at WQA Aquatech USA, March 18-21 in Orlando, Fla. In addition to debuting a new booth and a new drinking water filtration system, 3M will introduce the water community to the 3M Dealer Advisory Council, and will also preview new online tools for dealers. New product innovations: WQA Aquatech USA attendees will see the introduction of 3M's latest water quality innovation--the 3M(TM) Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filtration System. This under-sink system is newly optimized for reduction of specific VOCs, and has been tested and certified by NSF International against NSF/ANSI Standards 42, 53 and 58. When operated under specific conditions, the system has the ability to produce up to 18.95 gallons per day of clean, fresh water. Enhanced with an increased service flow rate of 0.6 gallons per minute, the 3M RO system is an ideal solution for cleaner, better tasting water. A Performance Data Sheet containing information about contaminant reduction, operating, and performance claims will be posted following the product's release on E-Tools to Drive Leads and Sales: 2014 will see the addition of some new tools for 3M Authorized Water Dealers, with a soon-to-be-unveiled mobile app for dealers as well as a powerful new website. These tools will be added to the already robust package offered to 3M Authorized Water Dealers, who enjoy exclusive territories, the ability to leverage the 3M brand with its technology, and sophisticated marketing and lead generation. 3M gives its dealers personalized marketing campaigns and messaging tailored to the water quality issues of their local communities.
