InVitria Launches Zap-CHO to Enhance CHO Cell Culture Performance

With Zap-CHO, customers get the animal free benefit of hydrolysates, the performance of FBS and the consistency of a defined media.

Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) October 4, 2009 -- InVitria has launched a new and robust cell culture supplement for CHO (Chinese hamster ovaries) cell line enhancement called Zap-CHO. Zap-CHO is designed to deliver superior growth, maximum antibody productivity and faster cell line development and seed train expansion.

"Zap-CHO is a significant breakthrough in mammalian cell culture systems," said Dr. Steve Pettit, InVitria's 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.

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
  • Consistency of a defined media component
  • Biomanufacturing optimization and improved production economics
  • Better and more predictable performance in cell culture research and development

"Our product development team created Zap-CHO to exceed the needs of our customers working in CHO cell culture," said Scott Deeter, InVitria's President and CEO. "Our customers have realized exceptional performance results using Zap-CHO. InVitria's products, like Zap-CHO, are creating a new era for the cell culture manufacturing industry."
