Accelerating Product Development: From Transient Transfection to Stable Pools and Stable Clones

Companies mentioned in this article: MaxCyte, Inc.

GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MaxCyte, Inc., the pioneer in scalable, high-performance cell transfection systems, is presenting a free webinar on May 14, 2014 with Cambridge Health Institute. The webinar, Accelerating Product Development: From Transient Transfection to Stable Pools and Stable Clones, will be presented by James Brady, Ph.D., MBA, Director of Technical Applications, MaxCyte, Inc.; Jérôme Courtête, Ph.D., Head of Protein Production and Purification Group, Valneva, Inc.; and Audrey Angel, MSc., Research and Development Engineer, Valneva, Inc.

The webinar will highlight the MaxCyte flow electroporation platform, which provides a universal means of fully scalable, highly efficient transient transfection for rapid high-titer antibody production in CHO cells, often >1 gram/Liter with optimization. Having adequate quantities of antibodies earlier for characterization and proof of concept studies can accelerate and improve candidate selection. Additionally, the platform can also be used to produce other proteins and works with a variety of other cell types like HEK, Vero, CAP-T®, insect cells, primary cells, stem cells, and other difficult-to-transfect cells. The same technology can also generate transfected cells with high viability and transfection efficiency for stable pools and for the selection and rapid generation of high-yield stable clones, thus bridging the gap between early- and late-stage antibody development activities.

Viewers of the webinar will:

  • Gain a familiarity with scalable flow transfection
  • Learn how to generate large quantities of protein quickly
  • Discover how to accelerate product development
  • Understand the difference between electroporation as a consistent, reproducible transfection method compared with chemical methods
  • Learn how to rapidly obtain high expression with difficult-to-express proteins
