The Characterization and Implementation of Dielectric Spectroscopy (Biocapacitance) for Process Control in a Commercial GMP CHO Manufacturing Process

Dielectric spectroscopy (biocapacitance) is an up-and-coming technology for real time monitoring of biomass in cell culture processes and has opened the door for next-generation cell culture process control techniques such as automated on-demand nutrient feeding. In this case study we empirically demonstrate the lower limit of quantitation (LOQ), probe-to-probe consistency, and scalability of in situ biocapacitance probes using data generated from small- and large-scale Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) bioreactor cultures. The process understanding experiments culminated in the use of biocapacitance for process control in cGMP manufacturing environment… Learn More
