'Captures in a masterful way the many dimensions of perfusion cell
culture technology, including its history, key concepts, relevant
cell biology, hardware and instrumentation, mathematical modeling,
and scale up technics, all supported by lucid examples that will
resonate with the biotechnology professional. The book captures the
cutting-edge advances in the field achieved only over the last few
years, with a broad applicability to the manufacture of traditional
molecular biotherapeutic, as well as complex new modalities, such
as gene and cell therapies, and vaccines. Not surprisingly, the
leading expertise of [this] team in continuous downstream operation
is reflected in the introduction of a fully integrated continuous
biomanufacturing platform, which has all the requisite qualities to
become the dominant architectural design of the future.' Konstantin

'A delightful guide full of important information for those of us who want to make perfusion great again thanks to the appearance of new cell retention technologies, single use bioreactors and sensors. It will greatly help biotech developers to better understand the fundamentals of cell culture in perfusion, to design appropriately their systems and to control optimally their processes in order to deliver high quality product at a better cost efficiency than the classical large-scale fed-batch processes.'
