ATCC delivers 350 cell lines using cell culture system
TAP Biosystems’ SelecT automated cell culture device has been used in the production of 350 different cell lines at the world’s largest biological resource centre, ATCC.
Installed in 2006, the SelecT systems at ATCC fully automate cell culture processes to ensure sustainable, consistent production of thousands of ampoules of cell lines.
The systems support the production of around 55,000 ampoules each year and have cultured items such as tumour cell lines, primary fibroblasts, and stem cell feeder layer lines, grown in adherent, aggregate or suspension culture.
The cells lines cultured are those in high demand (up to 1500 ampoules per cell line per year) or required to fulfil requests for bulk production of specific cell lines in response to customer demand.
SelecT has been specifically designed to enable multiple cell lines to be cultured in parallel, without risk of cross contamination.
The system has a negative-pressure, HEPA-filtered laminar airflow cabinet to ensure aseptic processing using protocols optimised to individual cell lines.
Cells can be harvested, counted and seeded without operator intervention, overnight and at weekends, enhancing the productivity of cell culture facilities.
TAP Biosystems will be unveiling its latest development in 3D cell culture at the Society of Toxicology meeting.
TAP Biosystems advanced micro bioreactor system is in use at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL).
A new collaboration hopes to result in optimal media and process paramenters for stem cell therapies.
TAP Biosystems has announced the first installation of its micro bioreactor system (AMBR) with integrated cell viability analyser for a pharmaceutical company.
TAP Biosystems is to introduce the Compact SC, an automated T-flask cell culture system designed to fully control expansion, differentiation and maintenance of stem cells
