Culture Biosciences

Innovation Partner

Culture Biosciences has developed proprietary 250mL and 5L bioreactors for microbial, protein therapeutic, and viral vector cell culture applications. Our services have been used by over 75 customers and 20,000 bioreactor runs and counting. Here we describe experiments that our team performed using an AAV transfection-based process. We standardized transfection complex addition via peristaltic pump and manual syringe additions with no significant differences observed between methods. We also evaluated process robustness by increasing agitation rate which resulted in no significant difference in viral titer between both conditions. The next set of experiments will be to further define process robustness and optimization by altering additional process parameters in bioreactors.
