Media and Process Development for Seed Train Intensification



WEBINAR

Media composition plays a critical role in biopharmaceutical production as well as seed train expansion. The right combination of media, specifically designed for their purposes, in a seed train including a perfused N-1 step, can increase productivity in the final perfused production step. This indicates that specific companion media combinations can increase productivity gains with these intensified process formats. Using this technology combined with high cell density cryopreservation serves as an ideal possibility to intensify upstream processing.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • About intensified upstream processing
  • How combining media, specifically designed for seed train, production, and harvest intensification, can increase the cell-specific productivity (Qp) in the final production stage
  • How applying high cell density cryopreservation can significantly shorten your seed train
