Containers and methods for reducing cavitation of protein solutions

June 29, 2021

Despite well-controlled production and purification processes, protein particulates in therapeutic protein formulations may still arise from protein adsorption to the surfaces of containers such as vials and pre-filled syringes, as well as the mechanical stresses resulting from these containers being agitated, dropped, or roughly handled. Researchers at the University of Colorado have shown that hydrogel coatings are able to protect the protein formulation against mechanical stresses responsible for subsequent protein aggregation and particle formation.
