Many biopharmaceutical therapies, such as mAbs and blood plasma factors, are produced using biological materials. This carries the risk that microorganisms such as viral contaminants may be unintentionally introduced into the manufacturing process and contaminate the product. Thus of paramount importance is the removal of such adventitious agents using effective viral filtration methods.
