Reach the clinic in 14 months and achieve high titers with the Cellca royalty-free CHO expression platform. Pick the best clones with ambr® 15 and scale up readily to our BIOSTAT STR® bioreactors. Off-the-shelf assays from BioOutsource allow rapid testing of your biosimilar product.
Director, Marketing Integrated Solutions
A comprehensive suite of analytical services to support the testing of biologic drugs and vaccines throughout preclinical testing, manufacturing and lot release. In particular, BioOutsource specializes in biosimilar testing services for monoclonal antibodies, providing more than 100 off-the-shelf assays for the fast characterization of a large variety of biosimilar antibodies.
ambr® 15 cell culture mimics the characteristics of classical bioreactors at microscale (10-15mL) by using cost-effective, disposable micro bioreactors controlled by an automated workstation. The system enables the rapid evaluation of different clones at microscale, thereby increasing your speed to clinic.
The BIOSTAT STR® familiy consists of a range of completely single-use bioreactors with a conventional stirred-tank bioreactor design that is ideal for high-density cell culture applications. The range has true scalability from process development to pilot to production scales, minimizing both the effort associated with scaling up cell culture processes and the risk of process transfer even to larger-scale bioreactors.
Reduce your early stage development timeline by several months with the Cellca CHO expression platform, accelerating your development from DNA to Research Cell Bank (RCB) to just 4 months with an easy-to-use, robust and scalable platform.

This case study, published by Wuxi AppTec, explains how the company shortened the time for upstream process development from 22 to 16 weeks by replacing traditional shake flasks and bench-top bioreactors with a combination of automated micro and mini bioreactor systems.
Automating development activities allowed the company to reduce the resources required to define a cell culture process. Data from the resultant process showed excellent comparability between the ambr® 15 micro bioreactor and a 200 L BIOSTAT STR® single-use bioreactor.

Cobra Biologics outlines a novel, multi-parametric approach for clone selection and feed-strategy optimization in this article. Conducting the studies in this way took just four weeks, whereas the equivalent work in bench-top bioreactors would have required several weeks more.
The company successfully verified the process with the clone selected by the multi-parametric approach in 5 L bench-top and 250 L pilot-scale bioreactors. The platform reduced timelines and costs in early-stage upstream process development.

One of the first steps in the journey of a product to the clinic is the development of a cell line for its expression. Companies can save around 3-6 months of development time by the adoption of a platform approach to cell line development. The Cellca CHO expression platform and development services allow companies to move from DNA to having a research cell bank and cell culture process much more quickly.
Fast-track your upstream process development. We’ll help you reach the clinical phase in as little time as possible. Let us know your questions and requests. You will hear from us shortly.
Reaching the clinical phase as quickly as possible directly affects the return on investment (ROI) made by biopharma companies. Jincai Li of WuXi Biologics describes how the ambr® 15 high-throughput microbioreactor system can accelerate process development by enabling a better clone selection program and a subsequent rapid scale-up to 2000L bioreactors.
