Animal Cells as Bioreactors (Cambridge Studies in Biotechnology) by Terence Cartwright
Cambridge University Press | August 26, 1994 | English | ISBN: 0521412587 | 196 pages | PDF | 5 MB
This book covers all aspects of the new technologies needed to turn animal cells into an acceptable and cost-effective tool for drug production. This includes modifying them genetically so that they produce the right product in high yield, getting them to grow reproducibly on an industrial scale, and extracting the required product from them. It also covers biological safety issues, and the verification of the chemical and biological nature of the protein drug produced.
