Optimization of the Rocking Speed and Angle of a Perfusion Bioreactor for T Cell Culture

For autologous T cell therapy to be effective, T cells sampled from a patient need to be grown in sufficient quantity before being injected back. The typical cell number required for an 80 kg patient is 8.109 cells. Achieving such a dose with T flasks, while maintaining cell health, poses logistical challenges that can become intractable when the number of patients rises. This is why the Xuri™ Cell expansion system W5, a rocking platform which enables automated high cell density…
