1st patented single use bioprocessing method in the far east and 2nd single use bioprocessing method patented in 2002 after wave method.
Large Surface Area - 5.5g of carrier is already equivalent to 15,600cm2 of surface area
Highest Productivity - 5.5g of carrier is able to culture up to 5x109cells*
Lowest Downstream Processing Cost - cells are fixed within proprietary BioNOCII macrocarriers and are separated from the media. This makes cell harvesting or media harvesting much easier
No Oxygen Limitation - Dual oxygenation action provides cells with ample oxygen regardless of the bioreactor scale.
Zero Shear Stress - Gentle upward and downward tide motion (2mm/s) provides nutrients and oxygen to cells without applying shear stress, perfect for shear sensitive cells. Minimizes impurities with host cell protein and DNA/RNA.
No Bubbling, No Foaming - Tidemotion bioreactors use separate vessels for culturing and stirring thus isolating the cells being cultured from any form of bubbling or foaming.
100% Continuous Processing >3 months - Ideal for biosimilars / biobetters, Monoclonal Anti-bodies (MABs), and recombinant proteins. As cells are immobilized, cell retention devices which are typical for perfusion based suspension Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells are not required to separate cells from media. This means no fouling, foaming, and scalability issues resulting from flow rate limitations of cell retention devices.
Controlled cell growth (Batch mode) - Controlled cell growth during cell culture to promote productivity in batch mode via extending exposure time during tide motion without requiring additional feed control.
Shortest bioprocess scale up development time - parameters developed in academic /industrial R&D can be easily translated into clinical trials and commercial production as parameters are identical and hence linearly scalable without complex scale up bioprocess calculations (as those found in Stirred tanks).
Immortal cell lines - Freezing cells in G0 and G1 phase by nutrient starvation by deprivation of glucose to boost productivity of protein expression.
*based on vero cell line. Yield can further be increased using our adherent media PlusTM Vero
