Adding iron and phosphate tests to Cedex Bio test menu.

Roche has announced the launch of new metabolite-testing reagent sets to determine the concentration of iron and phosphate, two parameters relevant for cell growth and productivity during fermentation processes.

The tests are designed for applications in research and bio-manufacturing process development and will allow the measurement of iron (complexed iron /Fe3+ ions) and phosphate on Cedex Bio instruments.

“The new tests ideally expand our metabolite testing portfolio for mammalian cell fermentation analytics. It is currently the most comprehensive portfolio combining iron and phosphate testing with other relevant parameters such as IgG, LDH and other standard metabolites,” said Ruedi Stoffel, Head of Biochemical Reagents and Custom Biotech.

Stoffel continued, “Thanks to their reliability, precision, and ease of use, our Cedex instruments and the new testing portfolio are perfectly designed to optimize process development and monitoring of bio-pharmaceutical production particularly when using chemically defined media. The rapidly increasing customer base of our Cedex instruments will benefit from our continuously expanding testing portfolio.”

The new tests can be easily installed by barcode reading through the customer supporting the flexible testing concept. Offered as liquid-stable formulation, they are ready for use and do not require manual dilution or pipetting steps.

With their increased precision, accuracy and long calibration intervals, the new iron and phosphate tests offer cost-effective and convenient testing with less hands-on time for users.
