Bioprocessing Application Notes & Case Studies

  1. Production Of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Cortical Neurospheres In The DASbox® Mini Bioreactor System
    1/15/2019

    Stem cell-derived cortical neurospheres are of great interest in basic neurobiology research and drug research. Cultivation in controlled, stirred-tank bioreactors can improve the homogeneity of neural spheroid cultures and allows culture scale-up.The ability to generate high numbers of homogenous human iPSC-derived neurospheres will contribute towards personalized drug testing in microphysiological systems. This application note demonstrates using  a DASbox Mini Bioreactor System for the generation of human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) spheroids and subsequent neural differentiation.

  2. CHO Cell Cultivation In A DASbox® Mini Bioreactor System And DASGIP® Parallel Bioreactor Systems

    A helpful guide through all steps of a bioprocess, starting from the preparation of the inoculum to the preparation and operation of the vessels and bioprocess systems, the bioprocess run itself, and the analysis of samples.

  3. Removing The Aggregates Of An Acidic Monoclonal Antibody With CHT Ceramic Hydroxyapatite XT Media
    1/14/2019

    A major challenge in downstream purification of mAbs is the formation and removal of aggregates. CHT XT is the newest addition to the CHT family. This study shows that CHT XT is capable of minimizing the aggregate content during mAb purification. It can also reduce other product- and process-related impurities to significantly low levels. These data demonstrate that CHT XT is an exceptional tool for polish purification of monoclonal antibodies.

    Compare two purification strategies and their effectiveness to offer high product yields and clearance of acidic impurities from the expression host cells.

  5. Non-Affinity Chromatography Resin Alternative For Capture Purification Of Antibodies
    1/10/2019

    Protein A affinity purification has multiple limitations in terms of productivity at manufacturing scale and the costs associated with making commercial antibodies, especially biosimilars. There could be a viable alternative, an ion exchange (IEX) resin, Nuvia S, for the capture purification of such biomolecules. Read instances where its use has resulted in a productive and economical purification workflow.

  6. Improved Process Economics Of HUMIRA Biosimilar Purification
    1/10/2019

    Biosimilar purification costs constitute more than half of the total development costs. A significant number of these costs are due to the expense of Protein A–based media. This application note proposes an alternate but equally effective approach to biosimilar purification, by substituting a less expensive ion exchange resin for the affinity capture step.

  7. Purification Of An Acidic IgM For Large Biomolecule Purification
    1/10/2019

    The large size of IgMs makes their purification very challenging. See how Bio-Rad's new strong anion exchange resin (AEX), Nuvia HP-Q, has the ability to overcome the multiple issues faced when purifying large biomolecules.

  8. Billion-Cell Hypoxic Expansion Of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells In BioBLU® 5c Single-Use Vessels
    12/18/2018

    In this study, we successfully demonstrated large-scale culture of human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (AdMSCs) in an industrial, single-use vessel at 3.75 L scale and demonstrate the fact that the process can  be conveniently scaled up to industrial levels of production without having to rely on stainless steel culture facilities.
