Puridify is commercialising proprietary purification technology that will make a step change to biologics manufacturing productivity and flexibility with minimal change to current best practices. Puridify's technology utilises high binding capacity, and high flowrates of nanofibres to enable product capture processing to be carried out much more efficiently. This increased productivity means far smaller purification units are needed to perform the same job as traditional packed beds. This size reduction makes disposal of the unit after a batch economically viable.
Puridify was formed in 2013 as a spin-out from University College London. The technology was developed during a collaborative research project between the Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering, UCL and the Science & Technology Facilities Council involving Dr Oliver Hardick, Stewart Dods, Prof. Bob Stevens and Dr Daniel G. Bracewell.
