The present article describes two new applications of plastic-based cell culture systems in the plant biotechnology domain. Different types of bioreactors are used at Nestlé R&D Center-Tours for large scale culture of plants cells to produce metabolites or recombinant proteins and for mass propagation of selected plant varieties by somatic embryogenesis. Particularly, recent studies are directed to cut down the production costs of these two processes by developing disposable cell culture… CONTINUE READING
