Flow Electroporation Capabilities and Case Studies: Rapid GPCR Screening and Functional Ion Channel Assays

MaxCyte’s proprietary flow electroporation technology has been successfully applied in ex vivo cell therapy (1) and drug discovery pipelines where reproducibility, efficiency and the need for increased cell numbers are critical. This technical paper discusses the merits of transient transfection using flow electroporation versus other recombinant expression approaches and its application in hit identification and lead optimization programs. Data are presented demonstrating the key features of the MaxCyte® STX™ Scalable Transfection System, including broad applicability, scalability, and the production of…

Delivering Fit-for-Purpose Biomanufacturing CHO Cell Lines

A prerequisite for the successful manufacture of a biopharmaceutical in mammalian cells is a cell line development strategy that selects a cell line with the most desirable properties from a heterogeneous transfectant population. Desirable attributes include the stable, high expression of product with the appropriate critical product quality attributes rapidly, reproducibly and with relative ease. Obtaining a host cell line that inherently exhibits such desirable biomanufacturing attributes can therefore have a significantly positive effect on the identification of recombinant cell…
