System Brings High Resolution to BioProcess Monitoring

Oct 19 2019 Read 326 Times

A collaboration between the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) and JM Canty International Ltd is set to advance a robust optical system for on-line real-time analysis of mammalian cells during a bioprocess.

The collaboration, which is funded by Enterprise Ireland, will be led by Professor Michael Butler, NIBRT and will include a newly appointed post-doctoral researcher and two other members of the NIBRT Cell Technology team.  Commenting on the collaboration Professor Butler stated “This collaboration will enable us to use the high resolution optical system developed by Canty in advanced monitoring and control protocols for bioprocesses to produce therapeutic proteins and other cellular therapies”.

Canty CEO, Tod Canty, remarked, “Our collaboration with NIBRT has allowed J. M. Canty Ltd. to have access to the most advanced technology in the biotech industry and combine our innovative unique cell counting and viability method in actual working conditions in a state of the art research facility. The combination of NIBRT and CANTY is much greater that the sum of the two groups on their own”. 

Colin Dalton, Canty’s application engineer stated, “This is a very exciting collaboration. Combining the expertise of the team at NIBRT with our latest high resolution dynamic imaging cell analysis system, will provide an enhanced understanding of the metabolic state of the cells during the bioprocess.”

NIBRT’s mission is to support the growth and development of all aspects of the biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry.
