Successful monoclonal antibody (mAb) manufacturing relies on good process development and reliable bioreactor scale up. Initial process development work is typically conducted at small scale, then moved to bench scale and lastly to pilot scale before moving into manufacturing. One ... Continued
Bioprocess controllers are an important part of a bioprocess lab. In many bioprocess labs several experiments are running simultaneously sometimes using multiple cell types with different modes and at varying scale. A bioprocess controller can help to simplify these demands, ... Continued
As part of our continuing conference coverage of the International Society of Cell & Gene Therapy 2018 held in Montreal, QC, we like to highlight interesting posters from the event. One such poster, “Scalable Production of hiPSC-Derived Cardiomyocytes in Stirred-Tank ... Continued
Cell culture CO2 incubators are a critical part of the cell culture process as cells spend most of their time here. The CO2 incubator’s purpose is to create ideal living conditions for cells to thrive, however this is not always ... Continued
Introduction hiPSCs cultivation can be challenging with lot-to-lot coating variations, tedious preparation and increased contamination risk. In particular, biological coatings may negatively impact downstream applications due to the presence of undefined extracellular matrix (ECM) components and growth factors. Another common struggle ...
