By allowing a single system to be used from laboratory- to commercial-scale, multi-tray bioreactors can facilitate scale up and accelerate vaccine development.
Aug 2, 2007
The recent growth in the vaccine market has led to renewed interest in using adherent human cell lines for vaccine production. Traditionally, small-scale adherent cell line production has been carried out in roller bottles or T-flasks. Over the past few years, however, a number of companies have found multi-tray disposable bioreactors an effective method for producing high-quality drug products using adherent cells. These disposable, expandable systems have also facilitated scale up from laboratory to clinical-scale.
