Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Selexis SA, a global life sciences company for drug discovery, cell line development and scale-up to manufacturing of therapeutic proteins, announced today the Company’s CSO, Pierre-Alain Gerod, Ph.D., will present “High Performance CHO Cell Line Development Platform for Enhanced Production of Recombinant Proteins Including Difficult to Express Proteins” at the Irvine Scientific Exhibit on Wednesday, October 10 at 3:30 PM. The Irvine Scientific presentations are part of the BioProcess International Conference being held October 8-12, 2012 in Providence, Rhode Island at the Rhode Island Convention Center.
From discovery to manufacturing, successful biologics development requires robust expression systems. For most protein therapeutics, the manufacturing system of choice is Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells. For the past 10 years, Selexis has developed patented technology, proprietary CHO-M cell lines and scale-up processes to produce CHO manufacturing cell lines that routinely achieve expression levels of 1-5 g/L. However, even with these technologies, certain classes of proteins, such as blood clotting factors and/or membrane proteins (GPCRs and ion channels) can be difficult to express. Selexis will present data on achieving high yields with the Selexis CHO-M cell line combined with an optimized media.
