Clean Room Clean-Up

Microbial management lies at the heart of Good Manufacturing Practice, and hygienic best practice dictates that up to a third of a scientist’s day can typically be spent cleaning and swab testing. Clearly, this is not the most cost-effective use of time, but managing risk will always be the key priority. While any microbial contamination is unlikely to spike within a closely controlled environment, any upwards trend, regardless of how far below alert levels it is, will require additional monitoring and investigation, translating into lost time and resources. Keeping clean rooms consistently below alert level is viable though. While hard work will not be eliminated, the combination of a scrupulous hygienic standard operating procedure (SOP) with well-considered procurement choices can at least reduce the risk.

Amending the SOP can offer some scope for authorising a reduction in clean down time if it demonstrates ongoing conformance with stable results. Minimising the need to rework or expend time undergoing further investigations will free up the team to focus on the task at hand, or, as necessary, turn their attention to other areas of risk management.

While no one-size-fits-all clean room exists, given that each factors a host of variables, certain hygiene and cleaning considerations that translate to any scenario must be made.

Delivering Fit For Purpose Biomanufacturing CHO Cell Lines

Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies

The challenge during mammalian cell line development is to identify and isolate stable, high expressing cell lines producing product with the appropriate critical product quality attributes rapidly, reproducibly and with relative ease. Obtaining a host cell line that inherently exhibits desirable biomanufacturing attributes can therefore have a significantly positive effect on the identification of recombinant cell lines with desired traits during cell line development screens. In this study, we demonstrate that it is possible to exploit intrinsic heterogeneity within host cell populations and identify host cell lines which are more “fit for purpose”.
