An efficient manufacturing process aims to reduce process steps, cut waste and, in the case of biopharmaceutical manufacturing, remove the risk of contamination. Every production batch begins by expanding the cell culture population from the vial of cells from the working cell bank to the bioreactor. Cell passaging has been left largely unchanged from the earliest days of the biopharma industry. Mapping of current cell expansion processes reveals many opportunities to eliminate steps, reduce waste, lower costs and take away the risk of contamination.
In this GEN webinar, we will hear how the application of modern bottle and flask closure technologies in combination with machine automation can compress a cell expansion process map to bring about a low-risk, streamlined workflow with reduced operating costs.


A live Q&A session will follow the presentations, offering you a chance to pose questions to our expert panelists.
