Session 15: Cell culture and fermentation: Delivering innovation and quality (Room Change)
Tuesday, July 26, 2016: 8:00 AM-11:30 AM
Bayside B/C, 4th Fl (Sheraton New Orleans)
Swapnil Bhargava - Seattle Genetics and Tiffany D. Rau - Evonik-Degussa
With the ever expanding demand for biopharma products, industries are looking for innovative ways to increase titers and throughput. These advancements trickle down through all aspects of cell culture and fermentation processes e.g. cell line development, bioprocess development, ways to manufacture, media development, and application of high throughput systems. In addition to these approaches focused to meet high product demands, industries are investing efforts to better understand product quality and its relationship with process. Interplay between these potentially counter-balancing scenarios and ever changing dynamics between process and quality are presenting interesting challenges and advancements in the field of cell culture and fermentation.  This session will be comprised of topics not only focused on process improvement in the yields but also the challenges being faced to modulate product quality.
