Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are the predominant host for production of therapeutic glycoproteins. In particular, the glutamine-synthetase (GS) expression system has been widely used in the biopharmaceutical industry for efficient selection of high-yielding clones. However, much remains unclear on how metabolic wiring affects culture performance. For(More)
Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are preferred hosts for the production of recombinant biopharmaceuticals. Efforts to optimize these bioprocesses have largely relied on empirical experience and our knowledge of cellular behavior in culture is incomplete. More recently, comprehensive investigations of metabolic network operation have started to be used to(More)
In biotechnological screening and production, oxygen supply is a crucial parameter. Even though oxygen transfer is well documented for viscous cultivations in stirred tanks, little is known about the gas/liquid oxygen transfer in shake flask cultures that become increasingly viscous during cultivation. Especially the oxygen transfer into the liquid film,(More)
We report a new method which combines fluorescence spectroscopy at microtiter plate scale with multivariate statistical analysis for rapid and high-throughput analysis of secreted recombinant protein and viable cell growth in animal cell cultures. The potential of the method is demonstrated by application to cultures of three Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO)(More)
In this work, synchronous fluorescence spectroscopy (SFS) is evaluated as a new tool for real-time bioprocess monitoring of animal cell cultures. This technique presents several advantages over the traditional two-dimensional (2D) fluorometry since it provides data on various fluorescent compounds in a single spectrum, showing improved peak resolution and(More)
(1)H-Nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H-NMR) spectroscopy is a powerful technique to analyze the composition of complex mixtures based on the particular proton fingerprint of each molecule. Here we describe a protocol for exometabolome analysis of mammalian cells using this technique, including sample preparation, spectra acquisition, and integration. The(More)
Several methods have been proposed in the literature to find a state-space model for the wave-radiation forces. In this paper, we compared four methods, two in the frequency domain and two in the time domain. The frequency-response function and the impulse response of the resulting state-space models were compared against those derived from the numerical(More)
