Importance of Using Serum-free Media in Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine Applications
Vanda Lopes, PhD, Senior Scientist at Irvine Scientific

Cell therapy and regenerative medicine are growing areas that focus on the application of cells as the therapeutic product. It is critical for success that enough cell numbers with consistent clinical quality are generated. While in other fields cell culture is a part of an overall process to generate a therapeutic product, in cell therapy it is the actual manufacturing process. Cell culture is a process that involves a large number of tightly linked variables, such as cell quality and culture media.

The removal of undefined components becomes critical when one moves towards creating a consistent manufacturing method and cell product. In this discussion, we will address the importance of using serum-free media in cell therapy, and how media performance is impacted by the overall cell culture process. We will also introduce a few of our available products that target several cell types (HSC, T Cell, NK cells) and can help to address some of the challenges of translational cell applications.

Custom Media Development to Maximize Your Cells’ Potential
Tom Fletcher, PhD, Scientific Director at Irvine Scientific

The production of therapeutic biologics requires high titers and excellent product quality to ensure efficient manufacturing and potent drug efficacy. Irvine Scientific is capable of maximizing a cell line’s potential and improving antibody product quality through our custom Media Development and Optimization program.

Media development begins with a Media Survey Panel to improve cell growth and titer and then focuses on improving product quality through our analytics and optimization processes. The N-glycan profile is a critical quality aspect that can alter antibody binding and function.
