Description

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.
