"The impact of Chronic Hydrodynamic Shear on  Cell Culture Performance in Stirred-tank Bioreactors"


~ Dr. Peter Rapiejko ~

As new technologies are deployed to increase cell culture performance in bioreactors, concerns about their potential impact on cell heath must be addressed.  A methodology was developed to characterize the impact of the long-term effects of hydrodynamic shear on cells in culture.  This approach, along with other strategies, were leveraged to predict an operating window for stem

cells grown on microcarriers in a single-use bioreactor.
