Shear Contributions to Cell Culture Performance and Product Recovery in ATF and TFF Perfusion Systems
Samantha Wang, PhD., Bioprocess Engineering, Boehringer Ingelheim

In perfusion systems, Alternating Flow Filtration systems are often attributed with better performance than Tangential Flow Filtration systems with regards to product recovery though not much is known about the mechanism behind this phenomenon. This study demonstrates that the pump shear, and not the alternating flow, is largely responsible for the performance differences between the two systems and offers a feasible TFF alternative to ATF systems.

Production of bispecific antibodies in “Knobs-into-Holes” using a cell-free expression system
Yiren (Joy) Xu, Senior Scientist, Sutro Biopharma, Inc

Cell free expression system (Xpress CF) enables expeditious evaluation of multiple knob-into-hole (KIH) bispecific scaffolds, providing valuable insights for KIH design to promote better assembly and expression.
