For GEA, perfusion is a key innovation focus for the entire upstream and downstream process. As it enables both the bioreactors and the material flow to run continuously throughout the process chain, it also improves capacity utilization.At the same time, the technology holds out major potential for media reprocessing – a significant cost factor in the production of new foods and, in turn, of the end products. Reusing and purifying media would mark a major milestone on the path to reaching price parity between conventional and new foods.
