InVitria Sponsors the 2010 Cell Culture Engineering Conference
News Apr 19, 2010
The Cell Culture Engineering (CCE) conference brings together all aspects of cell culture technology for human and veterinary biopharmaceuticals to inspire growth and innovation in the industry.
CCE provides the opportunity for the academic, industrial and regulatory communities to study and discuss new concepts and issues related to animal cell culture research and development. InVitria announces that they will be sponsoring and presenting at the 12th CCE conference in Banff, Canada.
InVitria will be presenting results from their new CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary) cell culture media supplement ‘Zap-CHO’ during the poster session at the 2010 CCE conference. Zap-CHO is a robust cell culture supplement for CHO cells that speeds cell line development, improves cell growth and antibody productivity.
InVitria designed Zap-CHO to accelerate cell line development processes and to maximize CHO cell culture performance in biomanufacturing by screening and selecting from several defined and animal-free components that optimize performance.
Zap-CHO is a next generation media supplement that delivers consistent cell culture performance, replacing FBS and hydrolysates. Zap-CHO provides benefits in CHO cell culture, including:
• Consistency of a defined media component
• Animal component-free
• Faster cell line development and seed train expansion
• Biomanufacturing optimization and improved product yield
• Better and more predictable performance in cell culture research and development.

'Body-on-a-Chip' Could Advance Drug EvaluationNews
MIT engineers have developed new technology that could be used to evaluate new drugs and detect possible side effects before the drugs are tested in humans. Using a microfluidic platform that connects engineered tissues from up to 10 organs, the researchers can accurately replicate human organ interactions for weeks at a time.READ MORE
Hope for Hot Flushes: New Class of Menopause Drugs Reduces SeverityNews
A new class of experimental drugs reduces hot flushes in menopausal women by almost three-quarters in just three days. The new analysis, published in the journal Menopause, also revealed sleep and concentration significantly improved in the three-day window.
