Alfa Laval CultureOne™

Premium separator for single-use biopharmaceutical processing

Small scale production meets upscale performance

It’s finally arrived: the market’s first premium separator for single-use biopharmaceutical processing. Alfa Laval centrifuges have long set the industry standard for top-quality cell culture separation. With the new Alfa Laval CultureOne, all of our unique innovations for gentle treatment and increased yield are now available in a solution for single-use biopharma processing. CultureOne brings maximum separation efficiency while creating new possibilities for processing cell-culture-based fermentations.


Smaller batches with predictable, scalable performance

Alfa Laval CultureOne is a scalable platform based on Alfa Laval’s well proven disc-stack technology to support the industry’s need for smaller batch volumes.

True hermetic design: the best quality and safety guarantee

The secret behind CultureOne’s performance is the new Alfa Laval Spinsert™: a patented replaceable insert that includes all our unique features, including Alfa Laval’s fully hermetic design and UniDisc™ technology.

Developed with the industry to meet today’s demands

Alfa Laval has partnered with leading biopharmaceutical producers to verify process performance under a wide variety of process conditions, ensuring CultureOne is a flexible solution to meet ever-changing process demands.

“In these extraordinary times when ‘health and safety’ is on top of everyone’s agenda, I am pleased to announce the launch of our unique system that facilitates and secure safe and efficient biopharmaceutical processing. Now we can offer a premium separation technology for more effective production of smaller batches of targeted treatments. It is beneficial for both our customers and the society.”

Why switch to single-use processing?

There are many reasons why more biopharma manufacturers are getting rid of sterilization equipment in favour of single-use processing solutions. Greater assurance of patient safety is key: just like single-use syringes in doctor’s offices, single-use technologies offer the best prevention of cross-contamination between batches. And single-use processing also means a reduced footprint and increased flexibility, making it possible to bring important new treatments to market faster than ever before.
