InVitria Presents Zap-CHO Performance Results at PEACe Conference

Zap-CHO: a new and innovative CHO cell culture supplement from InVitria designed to deliver superior growth, maximum antibody productivity and faster cell line development. Performance results were presented to attendees of the PEACe Conference in Jackson Hole, WY this week.

Fort Collins, CO September 23, 2009 / b3c newswire / C A new powerful and robust cell culture supplement for CHO (Chinese hamster ovaries) cell line enhancement called Zap-CHO was featured this week at the 9th Protein Expression in Animal Cells (PEACe) Conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Zap-CHO is a significant breakthrough in mammalian cell culture systems, said Dr. Steve Pettit, InVitrias Director of Cell Culture Development. With the development of Zap-CHO, InVitria has created a performance enhancing CHO media supplement that is the first animal free supplement capable of replacing fetal bovine serum (FBS) without sacrificing performance and maintaining a well defined media. Since Zap-CHO is a defined and animal component-free product, it is well suited for commercial, chemically-defined and serum- and animal-free cell culture media formulations, said Dr. Pettit.
Dr. Pettit presented the Zap-CHO performance results during the technical workshop and he also presented during the poster session at PEACe on Tuesday. Copies of the poster and presentation are available by contacting InVitria at the email address or phone number listed below.
Zap-CHO is a next generation media supplement that delivers consistent cell culture performance. Previously, only FBS could deliver equivalent performance, but safety concerns of a fetal bovine component in cell culture media forced many customers away from this component. In the last decade, customers have eliminated FBS in cell culture media only to lose cell culture performance. To regain the lost performance, many began adding hydrolysates to the media. However, hydrolysates introduced significant variability, leading to failed experiments and production failures. Zap-CHO addresses these concerns and provides significant benefits in CHO cell culture, including:
*Faster cell line development and seed train expansion
*Animal component-free media
*Consistency of a defined media component
*Biomanufacturing optimization and improved production economics
*Better and more predictable performance in cell culture research and development
Now, with Zap-CHO, customers can get the animal free benefit of hydrolysates, the performance of FBS and the consistency of a defined media, said Randy Semadeni, InVitrias Vice President of Business Development. It is a new era for the cell culture industry.
