mAb  production  &  purification:  frequently  asked  questions     1. Media  requirements   a. Sample  media  formulations  are  listed  below.

 Because  serum  (FBS)  s   not  used,  certain  elements  will  need  to  be  added  to  the  media,  such  as   transferrin  (binds  iron),  insulin,  albumin.   b. Same  media  is  used  throughout  the  process.   c. If  you  choose  to  make  the  media,  you  will  need  a  media  prep  room.     2. Cho  cell  growth   a. These  cells  will  be  adapted  for  growth  in  suspension  and  do  not  need   to  adhere  to  a  solid  substrate  (ie,  microcarrier)   b. The  cells  have  very  strict  growth  requirements  and  will  grow  slowly,   have  poor  production  or  die  if  not  treated  properly.  For  instance,  the   cells  will  not  grow  well  at  densities  less  than  10^5/  ml  and  will  not   grow  to  densities  higher  than  10^7/  ml.   c. At  all  times,  the  temperature  will  need  to  be  maintained  at  37  C  with   5%  CO2  to  provide  buffering  capability  with  bicarbonate  in  the  media   and  adequate  dissolved  oxygen.  In  the  larger  steel  reactors,  this  will   require  heat  removal.   d. Upon  thawing,  the  1  ml  frozen  stock  will  be  inoculated  into  10  mls   media  (not  all  of  the  cells  survive  freezing  and  thawing).     3. Seed  train  vs  production  reactor   a. In  the  seed  train,  the  priority  is  to  expand  the  cell  mass  by  maintaining   a  healthy  cell  population  in  the  exponential  growth  phase.  As  soon  as   they  reach  the  end  of  the  exponential  phase,  dilute  them  into  a  larger   volume  of  fresh  media.  The  cells  will  be  secreting  antibody  during  this   time,  but  that  will  not  be  harvested  during  seed  train  production.   Early  seed  train  reactors  can  include  T-­‐flasks,  roller  bottles,  wave   bioreactors  (disposables),  etc.  These  reactors  are  operated  as  batch  or   fed-­‐batch  (to  replace  consumed  nutrients)  –  there  is  no  outlet  because   this  would  result  in  cell  loss.   b. In  the  steel  production  bioreactor,  the  priority  is  to  use  the  cell  mass   to  maximize  yield  of  antibody.  We  are  no  longer  concerned  with   propagating  a  healthy  cell  population.  Thus,  cells  will  be  seeded  into   the  reactor,  allowed  to  grow  until  waste  products  accumulate  and  the   cells  begin  to  die.  The  process  is  terminated  when  a  sufficient  number   of  cells  have  dies  that  the  live  cells  are  no  longer  producing  high  levels   of  antibody.  Note,  these  larger  reactors  will  require  “steaming  in   place”  to  sterilize  prior  to  use.
