Accelerating Timelines by Integrating Cell Line Development and Manufacturing Programs

This webcast features: Nicole Wakes, Group Leader, Cell Line Development, Abzena The start of cell line development represents a significant milestone for biologics innovators: It’s a commitment to a specific molecule and the start of the journey towards IND. By using the latest technologies such as automated multiple microscale bioreactors and high-throughput analytics, it is possible to interrogate clones more closely to determine productivity, manufacturability, and performance at scale and at an early stage. In addition, the data generated can…

Implementation of Single-Use Fermentation Technology

This webcast features: Andrew Lowell, Associate Director, Upstream Process Development, KBI Biopharma, Inc. KBI Biopharma, Inc. has implemented single-use fermentation (SUF) systems that have allowed greater throughput and efficiency in the laboratory, leading to accelerated project timelines to good manufacturing practice (GMP) production. The single-use fermentation systems address those programs with relatively small material needs while decreasing validation requirements and increasing operational efficiencies. Coupling process design with the SUF equipment capabilities has enabled processes capable of high cell densities and…

Using Slope Spectroscopy for Faster, Repeatable, More Accurate Protein Concentration Measurements

This webcast features: Joe Ferraiolo, Bioanalytics Applications Manager, Repligen Traditional capture chromatography titer measurements that involve dilution requirements represent the highest single source of error in traditional UV analysis. Slope spectroscopy requires no sample preparation or dilution, saving substantial time without changing any other aspects of the assay. This webinar will demonstrate how variable pathlength slope spectroscopy using the SoloVPE™ device can significantly reduce sample prep and process time, while maintaining high repeatability and accuracy.

Cell Culture Media Analysis Using a Handheld Raman Analyzer with Onboard Chemometrics

This webcast features: Orville Dean Stuart, Technical Regional Sales Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific This webinar presents the use of a handheld Raman analyzer with onboard chemometrics to verify the identify and monitor the quality and batch-to-batch variability of both dry powder chemically defined media and ready-to use liquid cell culture media. While scans of cell culture media using Thermo Scientific’s TruScan RM handheld Raman analyzer produce spectra with good Raman features, due to similar constituents and formulations, the TruTools add-on…

Transform Cell Expansion: Expand Outside the Hood

This webcast features: Charles Meadows, Head of Product Management, Smart Consumables, Sartorius-Stedim Biotech Cell Culture expansion from vial to seed bioreactor is done by passaging culture through successively larger Erlenmeyer shake flasks. Sampling, media feed, inoculation and transfers are done non-aseptically by unscrewing the cap in a biosafety cabinet (BSC). Contaminated expansions due to non-aseptic technique are abandoned costing time and materials. Sartorius leveraged novel bottle closure manufacturing technology to create MYCAP® CCX. MYCAP® CCX combines tubing for aseptic fluid…

ekko: How Acoustics Cell Processing is Changing Cell and Gene Manufacturing

This presentation features: Kevin Lannon, Director of Global Sales, FloDesign Sonics With an ever-increasing number of cell and gene therapies approaching commercialization, the industry is looking for scalable manufacturing solutions. In order to truly see a step change in improvement, it is crucial for tool providers to design equipment specifically for the GMP environment and the unique needs of cell and gene processing. This presentation will outline: How acoustophoresis and the ekko™ platform is changing the cell processing paradigm Overview…

Bioproduction Media Optimization Through Spent Media Analysis

This webcast features: Matthew Smonskey, R&D Scientist, Gibco Bioproduction Services Group, Thermo Fisher Scientific Individual cell lines have unique nutritional requirements which may not be satisfied using catalog media. These deficiencies often result in less than optimal recombinant protein yields during a bioproduction process. This presentation will discuss resources available to identify these media limitations and options for designing custom media formulations in order to maximize protein yields.

High Productivity Harvest – Intensify Harvest and Displace Depth Filtration in Fed Batch Cell Culture

This webcast features: John Bonham-Carter, Director of Upstream Sales, Repligen High Productivity Harvest (HPH) is a novel application developed by Repligen that enables you to harvest a fed batch bioreactor in a fully sterile manner while eliminating both centrifugation and depth filtration. A 0.2µm filtered, closed system and single step process using the XCell™ ATF System, HPH can significantly increase yields above industry standards and generate a sterile clarified batch harvest ready for either batch or continuous chromatography. This webinar…

Webcast: Accelerating Vaccine Production with Non-Viral Cell Engineering

This webcast features: Victor Ayala, PhD, ABL Inc. Protein expression for manufacturing falls into one of two basic categories: stable cell line generation or transient transfection. While stable cell lines provide consistency in product quality and quantity, they are also expensive and time-consuming especially in early discovery and development phases. In this webinar, a fully-scalable cell engineering technology employing a transient transfection strategy will be discussed. This technology has allowed for the efficient and cost-effective evaluation of vaccine candidates in…

Bioproduction Efficiencies Gained Using the New ExpiCHO Stable Production Medium

This webcast features: Shreya Lowmaster, Msc Transition from the transient to stable production workflow exclusively in CHO cells with the new Gibco™ ExpiCHO™ Stable Production Medium and cGMP banked Gibco™ ExpiCHO-S™ cells. Transient titers in shake flasks and stable clone titers in a 50L Thermo Scientific™ HyPerforma™ single-use bioreactor were greater than 3.0 g/L in a fed-batch process with comparable product quality.
