The application of at-line NIR transmittance spectroscopy on supernatant samples from Chinese Hamster Ovary Cells (CHO) based monoclonal antibody (Mab) cultivation processes spanning several scales from 2.5L to 1000 L, cell-lines and development years is described. The collected and preprocessed spectra were used to do process state estimation and to obtain(More)
The yield of monoclonal antibody (Mab) production processes depends on media formulation, inocula quality, and process conditions. As in industrial processes tight cultivation conditions are used, and inocula quality and viable cell densities are controlled to reasonable levels, media formulation and raw materials lot-to-lot variability in quality will(More)
Mandelate racemase [EC 5.1.2.2] from Pseudomonas putida ATCC 12336 was efficiently immobilized through ionic binding onto DEAE- and TEAE 23-cellulose. The activity of the immobilized enzyme was significantly enhanced as compared to the native protein, i.e., 2.7- and 2.5-fold, respectively. DEAE-cellulose-immobilized mandelate racemase could be efficiently(More)
Biotherapeutics are often produced in non-human host cells like Escherichia coli, yeast, and various mammalian cell lines. A major focus of any therapeutic protein purification process is to reduce host cell proteins to an acceptable low level. In this study, various E. coli host cell proteins were identified at different purifications steps by HPLC(More)
In biomanufacturing processes, the influence of feedstock components on product yield and quality is considerable and often poorly understood. Here we describe the capabilities of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and two dimensional (2D)-fluorescence spectroscopy in detecting chemical changes over time in two types of culture media (one basal media and one(More)
In this paper, we illustrate the role of modeling in the development of commercial nitride-based lasers and LEDs. Aside from optimizing device performance, joint analysis of simulations and experimental results can shed light into the intrinsic properties of the InGaN/GaN material system.
