For pilot and production scale purification drugs, the use of a large particle-size media is common. Improving the purification throughput is limited by the media’s large particle size. Such a case was recently encountered when a pharmaceutical company attempted to improve the efficiency of a large-scale purification. In their current process, the use of a 350-600 µm polystyrene-type resin resulted in a lengthy purification cycle and low separation efficiency. However, the labile properties of the targeted component required a shorter purification cycle and high purification.

The introduction of parallel synthesis in pharmaceutical R&D has resulted in the need for purification systems
that allow for increased throughput. With reactions being carried out in a microplate footprint, it is important that the reaction workup can also be performed in this way.When using the 96-well format, there are limitations on both the reaction scale and also the sorbent capacity for the purification step. Using a 24-well system allows for greater sorbent masses to be utilized, increasing the scale of purification.
