Small Scale Scale Continuous Flow Bioreactor for Enhanced Adherent Cell Culture Public
Downloadable ContentDownload PDF
Most of the processes in the biomanufacturing industry utilize suspension bioreactor for the production of biologics, whereas there has been a slower development in large scale manufacturing involving adherent cell cultures. This project aims to design a novel bioreactor system which supports adherent cell culture, while improving upon cellular adherence and volumetric efficiency. The final design incorporated a packed bed of microcarriers within a continuous pumping system, thereby promoting bead-to-bead migration and the recycling of unattached cells. The system was tested for proper continuous fluid flow, and the microcarriers were optimized to maximize surface area and cellular attachment potential.
