InVitria Reports Successful Cell Culture Performance of Zap-CHO, a Defined and Cost Effective CHO Cell Culture Media Supplement

New Chinese hamster ovary ("CHO") cell culture media supplement delivers enhanced speed, growth and productivity while replacing undefined media components such as hydrolysates or fetal bovine serum ("FBS") in CHO cell culture.

Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) October 28, 2009 -- InVitria presented the successful performance of its newest CHO cell culture media supplement Zap-CHO during the poster session at BioProcess International '09 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. "We tested Zap-CHO in the leading commercial media and confirmed Zap-CHO's performance in chemically-defined and serum-free cell culture media," said Dr. Steve Pettit, InVitria's Director of Cell Culture Development. "In 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%."

Zap-CHO is a next generation media supplement that delivers consistent cell culture performance. Zap-CHO 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 product yield
  • Better and more predictable performance in cell culture research and development

*Through November 20, 2009, InVitria is offering a free Papa John's gift card worth $10.00 with your first online purchase of Zap-CHO. Orders may be placed online at Zap-CHO.
