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”.
