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.
Protein "Intentionally" Terminates own Synthesis by Destabilizing Synthesis Machinery — the RibosomeNews
A research group has discovered that a protein, during its synthesis, may destabilize the structure of the ribosome and end its own synthesis prematurely, and found that this phenomenon is used for adapting the cell to its environment.READ MORE
