Cellexus Limited Announces Availability of 50 litre CellMaker Regular™
Product News Jun 11, 2009
Cellexus Limited, ’The Cell Company’, announces availability of the 50 litre format of the CellMaker Regular™, a single use, disposable bioreactor system providing increased ODs and improved yields of soluble protein when compared with flask grown cultures.
The Company, which develops and markets a range of novel single-use bioreactors and cell-based technologies for biopharmaceutical research and production, designed the system specifically for culture of pichia, E.Coli and algae cells. Its availability follows the successful launch of the 8 litre system in October 2008 to enable further scalability.
The CellMaker Regular range of products use CellexusBags™ which are single-use, disposable cell culture bags allowing fast set-up times and eliminating lengthy cleaning protocols. Whereas other disposable systems require shakers, rockers, rollers or large environmental chambers, the CellMaker Regular range of products employ proprietary airlift technology to efficiently mix, aerate and maintain cell suspension.
The CellMaker Regular Controller units enable management of temperature (15 to 45 C), bag-pressure and flow of air and oxygen into the cell culture. Accurate control of these parameters can enable optimization of culture growth and improved expression levels of soluble protein.
Mr Bob Cumming, General Manager of Cellexus Limited, stated “We are very pleased to expand the range of CellMaker Regular products to add the 50 litre system to the 8 litre system we launched some months ago. It provides our users with further scalability and illustrates our commitment to meeting customer needs with our concerted product development strategy designed to further facilitate system use and performance.”
