Selexis SA to Present and Partner at the BIO-Europe 2011 Partnering Conference

October 20, 2011

Dr. Igor Fisch to Present in the Discovery Platform Track

Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) October 20, 2011

Selexis SA announced today the Companyâs president and CEO, Igor Fish, Ph.D., will present, âœThe next generation designer cell lines as a fully integrated platform for faster clinical development of therapeutic proteinsâ on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at 10:30 AM at the BIO-Europe 2011 Partnering Conference being held October 31 â“ November 2, 2011, at the CCD Congress Center in Düsseldorf, Germany. The Company will be also taking part in the pre-scheduled partnering meetings.

Presentation Abstract:

From discovery to manufacturing, successful biologics development requires robust expression systems. For most protein therapeutics, the manufacturing system of choice is Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells. For the past 10 years, Selexis has developed patented technology, proprietary CHO-M cell lines and scale-up processes to produce CHO manufacturing cell lines for clients that routinely achieve expression levels of 2-5 g/L. However, even with these technologies, the CHO cell is remains poorly efficient in the production of certain classes of proteins, such as fusion proteins. Selexis has developed new designer CHO cell lines that have been metabolically engineered to overcome the specific expression bottlenecks associated with difficult-to-express proteins. These next generation designer cell lines are powerful tools that can be implemented at the earliest stage of discovery up to the product manufacturing allowing considerable labor and time saving.
