UGA Biopharma to showcase their Cell line development platform at BIO-Europe® Digital
Hennigsdorf near Berlin, Germany: UGA Biopharma GmbH, the leading-edge contract development and research organization for biologics and biosimilars, will once again be a high-profile presence at the upcoming BIO-Europe® biotech industry partnering event, to be hosted in digital online format for Autumn 2021.
UGA Biopharma, which has a long relationship with the BIO-Europe conference, will use October’s BIO-Europe® Digital Edition to connect with potential customers for its fast-track cell line development platforms, ready-to-use biosimilar cell lines, and its First CHOice® Media and Feeds.
First CHOice benefits
UGA will present the user benefits of the First CHOice® Medium for high performance cell culture optimized for mammalian cell lines. In combination with CHOice® Feeds it has been optimized to boost the cell growth and productivity in batch, fed-batch and perfusion processes.
The completely chemically defined, animal component and protein free First CHOice® Medium has been developed in close cooperation with customers using CHO-S, CHO-DG44 and CHO-K1 cell lines in order to minimize stress-related metabolites such as lactate and ammonia, to guarantee high product quality and cell viability during all cultivation phases.
The team will be able to demonstrate product capabilities using the event’s partneringONE® virtual meeting platform, as well as UGA Biopharma’s overall strengths as a contract research and development organization (CRDO) focusing on the development of stable expressing CHO cell lines for the production of biologics and biosimilars for biopharmaceutical companies.
Upstream and downstream process support
Business Development & Marketing Manager, Dr. Marcel Nowak, will be representing UGA Biopharma online. He commented: “We will be reaching out in particular to biopharma manufacturers, research institutions (universities, research institutes, etc.) as well as start-ups and other CROs that need to outsource cell line development (CLD), upstream or downstream processing. We will be very clear about UGA’s core mission to fulfill customer requests, recognizing industry needs for high titer, high quality and fast delivery timelines. UGA generates robust CHO-DG44 cell lines, reaching titers from 4 to 7 g/L, within four months of receiving the originator sequence,” Dr. Nowak added.
