Ecolab announced that its Purolite resin business, together with Repligen Corporation announced the commercial launch of Purolite's DurA Cycle, a protein A chromatography resin for large-scale purification processes. This new affinity resin is being introduced at the BIO International Convention (BIO 2024), being held June 3-6 in San Diego. This latest innovation marks a significant milestone in Purolite's long-term strategic partnership with Repligen, further solidifying Ecolab's dedication to driving advancements in the bioprocessing industry.

DurA Cycle is designed for large-scale commercial manufacturing of monoclonal antibodies, where cost of goods is critical for biologic drug developers. This new resin represents the latest addition to Purolite's toolbox, following two new resins launched in the last eighteen months to address purification challenges associated with ever-increasingly complex drugs. The announcement of Purolite's latest resin follows news of its investment in a new bioprocessing production facility based in Landenberg, PA, which complements its UK-based facility, providing dual continent manufacturing capabilities to address growing customer demand.
