    7/9/2019

    To meet the oxygen demand of cells a stable pO2 control is an essential part of every cultivation. The objective of this application note is to demonstrate the performance of a new generation of mass flow controllers in the BIOSTAT® B-DCU bioreactor system. Several comparative cell cultivations were performed.

  7. Automated Glucose Control
    7/9/2019

    Within this application is an example method on how to establish glucose feed control is documented and as well as highlighting the key benefits of applying this method to other processes.

  8. UniVessel® Single Use Bioreactor For CHO Fed-Batch Cultures
    7/9/2019

    The motivation for utilizing single use (SU) bioreactors is the reduced turn-around time and labor required for cleaning and autoclaving traditional glass vessels as well as the associated costs for maintenance and repair.  Sartorius’ 2L UniVessel® SU has an option for an external water jacket system controlled by Sartorius’ BIOSTAT® controllers. In this study, we determined the feasibility of the UniVessel® SU and BIOSTAT® B-DCU II combination by performing detailed comparability studies of cell growth, viability, monoclonal antibody (mAb) productivity and product quality attributes (aggregation, charge variation and glycosylation) using three recombinant CHO cell lines.
