This application note describes the cultivation of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) suspension cells in the Finesse SmartGlass vessel bioreactor with a maximum working volume of 2.0 L. Using chemically defined minimal media, cell densities of up to 7.44 × 106 cells/mL were achieved. Recombinant secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase (SEAP) expression was induced by medium exchange and temperature shift. Maximum SEAP activities of up to 63 U/mL were reached. A novel stirred glass bioreactor suitable for cell culture applications at benchtop scale was designed by Finesse Solutions, Inc. With a maximum working volume of 2.0 L, this bioreactor is controlled by the Finesse G3Lab controller.
