Upstream bioprocessing

From cell line development to culture expansion of the cells

Creating the right environment for optimal growth of cells and bacteria is key to the production of life-saving products like vaccines all over the world. 

Improving quality of life

Bioreactor systems are essential for manufacturing products that improve the quality of life, such as vaccines, antibodies, body tissues, nutraceuticals, biosimilars, enzymes, bio-fuel and bio-plastics.

By using scalable platforms from initial research through development to full-scale production, the scale-up risks between the different phases can be minimized and time-to-market can be reduced. Partnering with both scientists as well as production staff to help them achieve a better understanding of their upstream bioprocess is a key factor in achieving the desired goals.
