Cell culture processing first made its debut with the Polio vaccine in 1954. Since then the industry has been expanding and growing rapidly. In a matter of four years from 2002 to 2006 the mammalian cell capacity has significantly increased from 840 to 1970 in units of thousands of liters.
The efficiency of the upstream process has improved greatly in host cell line properties, cell line screening and growth rate.
Many experts in this field have high expectations for the industry to advance forward and devise more new and innovative approaches. We researched available technologies and chose to highlight these 12 based on their description in terms of efficiency, target, popularity and innovativeness.
Featured technologies include:
- Boehringer Ingelheim BioXcellance Internat
- Xpansionâ¢ bioreactor system
- Dual cross-linked hydrogel system
- and more!
