November 12-15, 2013 at the WPI Biomanufacturing & Education
Training Center (BETC) in Worcester, Massachusetts
After this intensive, four-day technical short course (2.8 CEUs), participants gain hands-on experience and a clear understanding of the following: • The principles and techniques in culturing animal cells in vitro
• Cell line characterization and quality assurance of a cell culture
• The principles and techniques for establishing a seed culture from
  a frozen stock to a bioreactor
• Strategies for scale-up of animal cells in culture for production of
  biologics using roller bottles, spinner flasks, microcarrier cell culture,
  disposable bioreactors with wave agitation, stirred-tank bioreactors
  (bench to pilot-scale), and hollow fiber technology.

Depth Filters for Single-Stage Clarification of Pretreated Feed Streams
EMD Millipore has introduced its Clarisolve® depth filter product line for single-stage clarification of high cell density and high-product titer pretreated feed streams. Clarisolve depth filters incorporate a gradient density structure specifically designed to process the particle size distributions found in pretreated feed streams. The design improves volumetric capacity and reduces turbidity.

When clarifying acid-precipitated or flocculated pretreated feeds, Clarisolve depth filters eliminate the need for centrifugation and a secondary stage of clarification, thus reducing the equipment footprint and enabling the use of a fully single-use process train. Clarisolve filters are available from lab, to pilot, to process scale applications, and are designed to work with EMD Millipore’s pretreatment cationic pDADMAC flocculation reagent.

Cell-based Wide-field High Content Screening
Molecular Devices® announced the launch of the ImageXpress® Micro XLS System, the latest addition to its high-content screening product portfolio. The system offers a three times larger field of view, a range of objective lenses, and autofocus control enabling fewer images per well and shorter imaging times. The ImageXpress Micro XLS System is capable of providing automated cellular imaging in fluorescent, transmitted light, and phase-contrast modes for fixed- or live-cell assays. Depending on the system configuration, the instrument can perform fixed end-point and time-lapse, live-cell studies. The ImageXpress Micro XLS System has a screening capability of >50,000 wells per day for a two-color assay. The system also facilitates faster characterization of highly heterogeneous samples from large, diverse populations and the identification of rare subpopulations. The instrument incorporates environmental controls, liquid handling, and bright field capabilities for label-free, cellular time-lapse experiments.
