Suspension cell culture can offer higher volumetric productivity and reduced complexity relative to adherent growth. Improving methods for adapting cells to suspension culture can facilitate cell line development and bioprocess design for cultivated meat. In addition, assays to determine how well a particular line grows in suspension or how likely it is to be adaptable to suspension culture can support screening efforts. These methods and assays could be developed open-access by researchers in academia or translated into a B2B service-based business model.

Species-specific genomic studies enabling assay development for regulatory standards and cell line optimization
A suite of assays and genomic knowledge exists for humans and commonly used laboratory species such as mice or fruit flies. However, the same species-specific infrastructure does not exist equally…
Research to align on the appropriate assays would introduce standardization that can accelerate R&D efforts.
Development of humanely-sourced and thoroughly documented and characterized cell lines from a variety of common food species—together with a mechanism for licensing and distributing these lines to researchers and companies—will…
