InVitria’s BioProcess Theater presentation, “New Strategies for Optimizing CHO Performance,” to feature new supplement for CHO cell culture optimization called ZAP-CHO during BIO 2009 International Convention in Atlanta, GA.
Fort Collins, CO May 19, 2009 / b3c newswire / – InVitria’s Director of Cell Culture, Dr. Steve Pettit, will present the performance enhancing features of ZAP-CHO, a new media component for Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell culture, at 3:30 pm on Wednesday, May 20, 2009 as part of BioProcess International’s BioProcess Theatre, a venue employed to facilitate the sharing of advances and discoveries in the biopharmaceutical sector.
ZAP-CHO, a new product from InVitria, enhances performance of mammalian cell culture including improved cell growth and antibody production. It achieves these performance advantages in chemically defined media that are completely free of animal components. Previously, the performance seen with ZAP-CHO was only possible by utilizing animal components such as FBS (fetal bovine serum), BSA (bovine serum albumin) or plasma-derived HSA (human serum albumin) in cell culture media.
“Our team of scientists has developed supplements that not only meet the regulatory requirements of researchers using hybridoma and CHO cell culture, but it exceeds their performance expectations as well,” said Dr. Pettit. “InVitria products have been utilized by customers to successfully achieve greater cell productivity and growth; faster cell doublings; and improved consistency.”
InVitria’s other leading cell culture media supplements will also be part of the BIO Process Product Zone exhibition in Booth #5120 within the BIO 2009 International Convention from May 19-21. These supplements include:
* Albumin-DX—whether you have problems with non-specific binding, biomarker stability, consistency or regulatory requirements, Albumin-DX was designed to answer the most difficult assay challenges.
* Cellastim—Cellastim outperforms plasma-derived albumin, bovine serum albumin and other sources of recombinant albumin.
* Lacromin—Lacromin is a CHO growth-factor that outperforms insulin and IGF-1.
