Fort Collins, CO (PressExposure) October 28, 2009 -- InVitria presented the successful performance of its newest CHO cell culture media supplement âZap-CHOâ (www.ZapCHO.com) during the poster session at BioProcess International â09 in Raleigh, NC. Zap-CHO is a robust cell culture supplement for CHO (Chinese hamster ovary) cells that speeds cell line development, improves growth and antibody productivity.
InVitria designed Zap-CHO to speed cell line development processes and to maximize CHO cell culture performance in biomanufacturing by screening and selecting from several defined and animal-free components that optimize performance. âWe tested Zap-CHO in the leading commercial media and confirmed Zap-CHOâs performance in chemically-defined and serum-free cell culture media,â said Dr. Steve Pettit, InVitriaâs Director of Cell Culture Development. âIn our tests, cell growth increased an average of 190% across all media. Zap-CHO also extended cell viability by delaying apoptosis and increased volumetric productivity an average of 179%.â
Zap-CHO is a next generation media supplement that delivers consistent cell culture performance. Zap-CHO provides significant benefits in CHO cell culture, including: â¢ Faster cell line development and seed train expansion â¢ Animal component-free â¢ Consistency of a defined media component â¢ Biomanufacturing optimization and improved product yield â¢ Better and more predictable performance in cell culture research and development
