Cytopore1 macroporous microcarriers are principally designed for use in suspension culture systems for growth of adherent recombinant Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells and the production of recombinant proteins.
- Macroporous structure of Cytopore microcarriers encourages cell growth into the bead, while the micropores provide maximum nutrient availability
- The characteristics enable growth of cells which require high recirculation rates and high nutrient-availability
- Optimized for growth of r-CHO in stirred tank cultures but is applicable to cell lines requiring similar surface charge
- Transparent for easy microscopic examination of attached cells
