Induced flocculation of animal cells in suspension culture.


Recycle unit operations for suspension cell cultures may be improved by flocculation of the cells. A flocculant search was conducted, and it was found that where strongly cationic polymers were severly toxic to the cells, neutral and anionic polymers were nontoxic and ineffective at flocculating the cells. A weak and poorly soluble polycation, poly-L… (More)
