Synpromics, Sartorius Stedim Cellca Partner
News Dec 07, 2016
Synpromics is pleased to announce a collaboration with Sartorius Stedim Cellca (Cellca) to evaluate and test its customised synthetic promoters with Sartorius’ proprietary mammalian production cell platform. The goal of the programme is to reduce timelines and increase yields in the development of stable cell lines for the production of biopharmaceuticals.
Cellca has developed the Cellca CHO Expression Platform, an efficient system for the production of biologicals using CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary) cells consisting of a proprietary cell line, growth medium, expression cassettes and fed-batch process. Cellca has already successfully completed more than 40 customer projects using its system. Synpromics has developed a unique panel of CHO specific synthetic promoters, using its proprietary PromPT™ platform, designed and selected for optimised expression of recombinant proteins.
The use of these synthetic promoters is expected to result in shorter cell line development timelines and significantly enhanced yields of biological products.
Dr David Venables, CEO of Synpromics, commented, “The majority of recombinant proteins, including monoclonal antibodies, are produced using the CHO system. We believe that the combination of Cellca’s CHO bioprocessing platform with Synpromics’ synthetic promoters will provide a much more efficient production system. We’re aiming for significantly higher levels of product being achieved which will increase capacity while reducing production costs.”
Dr. Christoph Zehe, Head of Technology Development of Cellca, added, “We are delighted to be working with Synpromics on this exciting project. We believe it will offer significant benefit to our clients in being able to provide a superior production system for biological products.”

Researchers have developed an artificial enzymatic pathway for synthesizing isoprenoids, or terpenes, in E. coli. This shorter, more efficient, cost-effective and customizable pathway transforms E. coli into a factory that can produce terpenes for use in everything from cancer drugs to biofuels.READ MORE
UT Southwestern researchers have succeeded in neutralizing what they believe is a primary factor in late-onset Alzheimer’s disease, opening the door to development of a drug that could be administered before age 40, and taken for life, to potentially prevent the disease in 50 to 80 percent of at-risk adults.READ MORE
