Enabling Stem Cell Therapy Biomanufacturing using Dissolvable Microcarriers
Job Title: Sr. Product Development Scientist, Development Associate
We are aware of the use of Corning Dissolvable Microcarriers (DMC) in various bioreactor platforms. Both glass and single use spinner flasks have been used extensively for small scale development work. We have seen DMC used in Eppendorf BioBLU (3c, 14c, and 50c), Millipore Sigma Mobius®, PBS Biotech® Vertical-Wheel™, and Sartorius BIOSTAT B systems. In terms of the rocking bag style of bioreactors, successful use of DMC in the Scinus Cell Expansion™ system has been extensively demonstrated.
