This question is part of the following Ask The Expert session:
We have demonstrated successful growth with many cell types that are used in Cell Therapy applications, as well as standard bioprocess production cell lines. The advantages offered by Corning Dissolvable Microcarriers (DMC) are not limited to a particular cell type but are most valuable for specific applications. Due to the fast time to harvest and the elimination of a microcarrier/cell separation step, DMC are idea for any application where the cell is the product or is a precursor to the harvested product. This would include biomass generation as a part of a cell train for large scale applications. DMC are also advantageous for any cell type that does not tolerate extensive shear or Trypsin digestion during harvest.
