TAP Biosystems (now part of the Sartorius Stedim Biotech Group), a leading supplier of innovative cell culture and fermentation systems for life science applications, recently announced the development of a stainless steel version of the fill-it system, designed for safely dispensing biohazardous materials such as vaccine stocks.
In cell culture-based vaccine production, scale-up of adherent cells is challenging. This study shows a process for scaling up adherent Vero cells from static cell factories to influenza production at 50 L scale using WAVE Bioreactor™ systems and ReadyToProcess single-use equipment.
Fermentation production facilities can utilize the Thermo Scientific™ HyPerforma™ Single-Use Fermentor (S.U.F.) instead of traditional stainless steel cleaning-in-place/ sterilization-in-place (CIP/SIP) fermentor vessels without modifying their existing procedures.
The time it takes to mix fluids in disposable bags is a key issue for many process developers.
Biosimilars are considered to be one of the fastest growing sectors of the pharmaceutical industry.
Biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing demand scalable processes that can be smoothly transferred to production. These processes need to be quickly developed and easy to implement.
Microcarrier (MC)-based suspension culture processes have been used to culture anchorage-dependent cells in bioreactors. However, scale-up of the process for high cell growth and productivity poses many challenges.
