ProBioGen and Life Technologies launch cell line development kit
27 May 2011
ProBioGen AG and Life Technologies Corporation have launched
the new Freedom CHO-S Kit as the result of a successful co-development.
The kit was built for developing stable high yield production cell lines
in less than 4 months, and is based on Life Technologies’ CHO-S Cells.
The Freedom CHO-S Kit platform enables end-users the cost- and
time-efficient creation of stable cell lines for research and
commercial purposes. The kit’s applicability and efficiency was
confirmed in several studies, in which antibody titers of 1 to 3 g/L
have been obtained.
About the Freedom CHO-S Kit
The Freedom CHO-S
Kit includes all major components to complete the cell line
development work flow: cGMP banked CHO-S cells, a cloning vector for
two genes, transfection reagent, competent cells, serum-free cell
culture media and reagents. With this kit it is possible to go from
transfection to lead clone in less than 4 months. Research use
rights are granted upon kit purchase.
A full documentation package is provided as part of a commercial
use license. The package includes the cell line’s lineage as well as
the history and the parental cGMP testing results.
