A keen interest in current trends in cell culture at the 25th ESACT meeting in Lausanne

May 29, 2017 A keen interest in current trends in cell culture at the 25th ESACT meeting in Lausanne

From May 14 to 17, 2017 more than 1,000 participants met for the 25th meeting of the European Society for Animal Cell Technology (ESACT) in Lausanne, Switzerland

At this bi-annual, world's biggest academic conference on applied research in the field of animal cell cultures, numerous new development trends were presented at a high academic level. The focus was among other things on innovative approaches to increasing space-time yield, new cell expression systems with targeted integration of the gene of interest, or process improvements by applying mRNAs.

Rentschler contributed with two presentations. Kurt Russ, Director of the Upstream Process Unit Process Design and Validation, presented "Scale-up and scale-down strategies in stirred tank bioreactors" for various requirements in the upstream process development. These included well-tested process platforms enabling fast and cost-effective process development.

The poster of Anne Steinkämper, Upstream Process Unit, about "Analysis of product quality attributes by MIR spectroscopy" described the use of MIR (middle infrared) spectroscopy applied to filtrated or dialyzed cell culture samples. It was created in cooperation with Micro-Biolytics GmbH in Esslingen, Germany. You will find our poster here
