Amniotic Fluid Stem Cells Extracellular Vesicles – Scalability of Production and Bio-Activity – 3D vs 2D culture

Poster Abstract EV clinical translation is constrained by limitations in scale-up of EVs production. Hollow fiber bioreactors (HFBR) support the culture of large numbers of cells, at high densities, producing significant numbers of EVs at high concentration. The high cell densities present in a HFBR can facilitate the use of xeno-free/chemically defined media, such as [...]

BioBUZZ on FiberCell

BioBUZZ Article about hollow fibre culture of cells "If you’ve worked in cell culture, you’ve surely had experience dealing with tissue culture flasks. These plastic vessels are the staple of cell culture work, but they definitely have their share of shortcomings. Having to transfer your cells to gradually larger flasks to scale up. Carefully [...]

piggyBac transposon-based expression system in combination with FiberCell hollow fibre bioreactor enables remarkable levels of production of HexM expression

100 x increase in protein yield accelerates ERT preclinical research Preclinical studies with potential therapeutic recombinant proteins can be hampered by difficulties with expression and scale-up in the laboratory. A group at the Department of Manitoba, Canada, used the piggyBac expression system in conjunction with the compact FiberCell hollow fibre bioreactor to generate >500mg [...]

Protocol for continuous culture of mesenchymal stem cells at high density in a hollow fibre bioreactor to produce concentrated exosomes

For laboratories wishing to produce large amounts of extracellular vesicles (exosomes) from MSCs using a hollow fibre bioreactor, FiberCell Systems has now published a preliminary protocol based on feedback from users in Europe and USA. If you need to quickly generate concentrated and pure EVs from MSCs this document is definitely a "must read". [...]

Media advice for celline flask production of monoclonal antibodies

High density celline flask culture of hybridomas is made more efficient by completely eliminating serum from both compartments. A serum replacement called CDM-HD or "Chemically-Defined Media for High Density Culture" is specifically designed for high density cultures and is supplied in Europe exclusively through KDBIO. It's important to note that this simplified media only [...]
