Insulin Improves Cell Growth and Influenza Yield in a HEK293 Suspension Cell Line

This webcast features: Aziza Manceur, Research Officer, National Research Council Canada To produce large quantities of vaccines in a rapid and cost-effective way is the main challenge that the vaccine industry is facing. Major changes to current bioprocesses are difficult to implement due to costs associated with the regulatory approval process. Therefore, we propose to use insulin, a protein currently used and approved in several processes and production platforms, as an additive to boost cell growth and viral production. The HEK293SF-3F6 cell…

Exchange Your Buffer Exchange

This webcast features: Quincy Mehta, Product Manager, Unchained Labs Buffer preparation and buffer exchange are tedious, manual processes that take a lot of time, particularly, hands-on time. This ultimately slows down your development timelines. In this webinar, you will learn how Unchained Labs breaks the manual buffer exchange bottleneck with Grunt, including: Formulation screening and development to scale-up Buffer preparation, exchange and analysis in a single bench-top instrument Impeccable mass recovery and time savings Analytical data supports protein handling is…

Improving Protein Folding Control and Scalability Using imPULSE Mixing Technology

This webcast features: Anthony Hawrylechko, Director of Microbial Bioprocess, Cytovance Protein folding by dilution is a common approach used in the manufacturing of biologics derived from microbial expression systems. This typically involves the solubilization of a washed inclusion body preparation containing the concentrated product polypeptide with a strong chaotrope or detergent solution. The denatured, inactive product solution is then diluted into a combination pH and red/ox buffer solution. Within this environment, the molecular diffusion rates of chaotrope, buffer components, and…
