Product news

  • Cell Therapy and Clean Air

    Cell therapy and gene therapy are the buzz words most commonly heard in modern laboratories.

    In yester year you would have entered a laboratory to find powder handlers and pill making machines along with fume cupboards and chemical storage devices and scientists creating pharmaceutical and performing microbiological testing.

    The laboratories of today are tightly controlled and validated cleanroom facilities filled with state-of-the-art clean air technology in the form of class II microbiological safety cabinets, isolators all ensuring the air within the work space is clean of any particles.

    Air coming into and out of the cleanroom is filtered as well as the air passing into and out of the equipment within. Laboratory personnel must pass through a rigorous entry process including wearing multiple layers of protective clothing and sometimes such lengths as wet showers. All to ensure the cleanliness of the facility.

    The requirement to maintain acute cleanliness is due to the high-profile nature of the cell therapy being performed by the modern-day scientist.

    CAR-T cell therapy is the process whereby T cells are extracted from a patient’s body and modified to seek and destroy cancer cells by implanting a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) in the cell.

    CAR-T cell therapy has been used by cancer research bodies throughout the world in ground-breaking work including that of the Cancer Research Institute who are leaders in the fight against paediatric cancers.

    We at Biopharma Process Systems (BPS) understand the stringent validation requirements of cleanroom facilities as well as clean air equipment which must be maintained to meet the expectations of MHRA. BPS are the ideal partner who understand and can support document preparation and execution to maintain a clean laboratory.
