  • Mabs
  • Cell
  • Culture

Date: 17 May


Time: 7AM London/3PM Tokyo

For many years, monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) have been used as therapeutics for a wide range of diseases, including various cancers and autoimmune disorders. In production of these biotheraputics, the achievement of multi-gram titers and the emergence of mAb biosimilars have resulted in a more intense focus on mAb product quality consistency, which is essential for therapeutic efficacy.

While selection and establishment of the appropriate cell clone is critical, cell culture media and supplements play a vital role in achieving desired titer and quality. Having an optimal medium can have a significant impact on the bioproduction process.

Learn more about how you can achieve and maintain appropriate mAb protein quality through cell culture media optimization and supplementation during this educational webinar hosted by BD.

Space is limited. Register today for this exciting educational event to learn more about optimizing and maintaining protein quality through optimization of cell culture media and supplementation.
