Much of the increase in productivity since the start of the bioproduction era decades ago has been due to optimization of cell culture media to support cellular health and to maximize product productivity and quality. With this advancement in media formulation and feed strategies, there is increased need for robust analytical tools. Many of the classical methods of media analysis were burdensome, slow, expensive, and limiting....Continued
Cell culture media remains a key component of biologics-based therapeutics manufacturing. As such, cell culture media development and optimization continue to be important focuses for the biopharmaceutical industry. Increased analytics capabilities have provided new insights into the relationship between cell culture media, the cells they support, and ultimately, the outcome of the final biologics product. That greater insight offers more opportunities to create products faster, more cost effectively, and with greater therapeutic success....Continued

During the recent ASGCT virtual conference, there was an informative symposium focused on mass spectrometry (MS)-based strategies for in-process analytics to support cell therapy manufacturing development and optimization. Rich Rogers, Ph.D., from Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) gave an excellent presentation outlining the analytical needs and instrument requirements for PAT and how MS-based PAT holds promise as a robust technique to overcome many of the challenges experienced with current analytical tools.
Rich and Kerin showcased the need for instrumentation to further process development and PAT in-process monitoring. They demonstrated how the REBEL analyzer is being used to provide rapid, sensitive at-line measurements for spent media metabolite analysis, and for nutrient profiling during media optimization or reformulation for viral vector and CAR-T manufacturing....Continued
In this podcast, we talked with Dr. Glenn Harris, Director of Integrated Life Sciences Platforms at 908 Devices, about the benefits and challenges of implementing rapid media analysis in process development, including the bottleneck created by outsourcing samples to core labs. We also discussed an easy to implement, benchtop media analyzer that permits comprehensive media analysis in real-time, thus speeding process development efforts....Continued
To speed process development using real-time analytics, 908 Devices launched its Rebel analyzer. The Rebel™ provides comprehensive at-line fresh and spent cell culture media analysis for bioprocess labs. This offers a high-throughput solution for media analysis....Continued
