New 2,000 L Single-Use Bioreactor Commissioned
Rentschler Biotechnologie GmbH, a leading contract manufacturing and development organization (CDMO) for biopharmaceuticals, has put their new 2,000 L single-use bioreactor into operation. The new bioreactor, built and commissioned in only six months, doubles Rentschler’s single-use manufacturing capabilities. It seamlessly integrates into the existing manufacturing suites by supplementing two existing 1,000 L single-use bioreactors.

With this new bioreactor, Rentschler is one of only a handful of companies with a 2,000 L single-use bioreactor at their disposal, which is today’s maximum working volume in single-use. Rentschler has over five years’ experience with single-use bioreactors and features a facility with a completely flexible space concept and movable equipment. Rentschler is also experiencing a high demand for stainless steel manufacturing and will invest €24 million to build a twin system with two 3,000 L stainless steel bioreactors.

New Line of Animal/Xeno-Free Enzymes
Worthington has introduced several new grades of collagenase, recombinant nucleases DNase I and RNases A, T1 & T2, and neutral protease (Dispase®). All are certified animal/xeno-free (AF) to minimize potential BSE/TSE (prion) and mammalian virus contamination risks associated with bovine and other animal-sourced enzymes for primary and stem cell isolation, bioprocessing, and other biopharm-related applications.

These new animal/xeno-free plant and fungal-sourced proteases products are now available in both research and bulk-scale quantities. Worthington provides free evaluation samples for qualified customers requiring “contamination-free” enzymes for their critical biomedical applications.
