Invitrogen’s CHO CD EfficientFeed Kit rapidly identifies the optimum feed regimen for any fed-batch CHO-based cell culture. The kit improves CHO fed-batch productivity and with developing bioreactor seed stocks. The new CHO CD EfficientFeed Kit comes with two feed supplements (1 liter each of CHO CD EfficientFeed A and CHO CD EfficientFeed B) and a detailed manual. The manual guides users through decisions relating to chemical or physical compatibility, the right feeds to use in shake flasks, and bench-top bioreactors, as well as when additional support from Invitrogen PD-Direct’s expert bioprocess team might be appropriate.
CHO CD EfficientFeed A and B, based on Invitrogen’s GIBCO, chemically-defined, serum free CHO media can be used to increase productivity by up to five times when compared to batch conditions. The feeds promote either higher protein yields or cell growth kinetics, making maximum protein amounts and more cells for seeding bioreactors available in a shorter time.
