New Findings from Technical University in the Area of Biotechnology Described (Bioreactors for plant cells: hardware configuration and internal environment optimization as tools for wider commercialization)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Fresh data on Technology are presented in a new report. According to news reporting from Dresden, Germany, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Mass production of value-added molecules (including native and heterologous therapeutic proteins and enzymes) by plant cell culture has been demonstrated as an efficient alternative to classical technologies [i.e. natural harvest and chemical (semi)synthesis]."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Technical University, "Numerous proof-of-concept studies have demonstrated the feasibility of scaling up plant cell culture-based processes (most notably to produce paclitaxel) and several commercial processes have been established so far. The choice of a suitable bioreactor design (or modification of an existing commercially available reactor) and the optimization of its internal environment have been proven as powerful tools toward successful mass production of desired molecules."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This review highlights recent progress (mostly in the last 5 years) in hardware configuration and optimization of bioreactor culture conditions for suspended plant cells."
