Online Video of InVitria's Zap-CHO Helps Scientists Maximize CHO Cell Culture Performance

Fort Collins, CO (PressExposure) December 17, 2009 -- Scientists working with CHO cells can now access an informational online video featuring a presentation by Dr. Steve Pettit, InVitria’s Director of Cell Culture Product Development. Zap-CHO is a robust CHO cell supplement that maximizes CHO cell line performance and speeds-up cell line development processes. Zap-CHO is not a hydrolysate; it is an animal free, well defined and consistent recombinant CHO supplement.

Dr. Pettit guides viewers through the online video by describing the work done to test the effectiveness of Zap-CHO on CHO cell growth and productivity. “We tested Zap-CHO in the leading chemically-defined, serum- and protein-free cell culture media available on the market today,” said Dr. Pettit. “In our tests, Zap-CHO increased cell growth an average of 190% across all media and extended cell viability by delaying apoptosis. Most importantly, Zap-CHO increased volumetric productivity an average of 179%.”

In the video, Dr. Pettit points out the distinct advantages Zap-CHO gives scientists who are trying to improve their CHO cell line performance, including: • Faster cell growth • Higher peak cell density • Reduced apoptosis • Increased viability • Maximized productivity • Easy removal by Protein A chromatography during downstream purification

Further, Zap-CHO helps scientists working in clone selection by improving growth and shortening timelines; in seed train expansion by reducing the amount of time from cell bank to bioreactor; in cell adaptation by reducing the timelines for media adaptation; and, in bioproduction by maximizing antibody titre.
