Protein Production


Product: Trimer Tag expression enhancement

Applications: Trimeric protein production

Features: Patented technology allows pharmaceutical and biotech companies to design and produce any secreted therapeutic proteins in trimeric form by taking advantage of the natural properties of collagen; technology can complement or replace the Fc-Tag technology that has been used to produce dimeric proteins used in blockbuster biotech products and targeting trimeric ligand TNF-α as well as open up new avenues for targeting trimeric ligands

Media Optimization

Product: CHO CD EfficientFeed kit

Applications: Fed-batch CHO-based cell culture

Features: Comes with two feed supplements (1 L of each) and a detailed manual that guides users through decisions relating to chemical or physical compatibility; chemically-defined, serum-free CHO media can be used to increase productivity by up to five times that of batch conditions; feeds promote higher protein yields or cell growth kinetics, making maximum protein amounts and more cells for seeding bioreactors available in shorter time
