Optimising transfection as a starting point for bioproduction

Bioproduction describes the manufacturing process of biological compounds such as recombinant proteins or antibodies. Essential for all subsequent processing steps is the establishment of a well-performing starter culture. An optimised transfection in small scale is one of the first steps to successfully create a stable or transiently protein-producing cell line.
In this webinar, we will give an overview on the bioprocessing workflow with an emphasis on how transfection conditions influence the outcome of protein production.

Covered topics:

  • Introduction into bioproduction and transient protein production
  • Experimental conditions: transfection, protein expression, cell viability, scalability
  • Troubleshooting
  • Q&A

This webinar will be held on June 02nd, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. CET.

A new approach in adventitious virus testing in biopharmaceutical production

In cooperation with INFORMA we perform a webinar to introduce the new ViroInspect® Rodent 2 Test Kit for the detection and identification of viruses in biological materials.

Overview of the presentation:

  • Contamination of cell cultures by viruses is a fundamental problem for the manufacture of biopharmaceutical products
  • Biopharmaceutical production must comply with different legal requirements and regulatory bodies all over the world
  • Cell culture and in vivo susceptibility test are still used as standard methods but suffer from many disadvantages such as time, sample throughput, serviceability, specificity, sensitivity, ethical aspects and overall costs
  • New techniques for rapid and comprehensive virus detection have been developed and validated in accordance with legal guidelines
  • With results delivered in less than 9 hours, ViroInspect® Rodent 1 and Rodent 2 from Greiner Bio-One are a rapid and effective alternative to cell culture and in vivo testing

Webinar Date: June 1st, 2016 – 15.00 CET / 14.00 BST / 9.00 EDT
