Cellicon™ Perfusion Solution

A Superior Perfusion Solution for Seed Train Intensification with Optimized Process Control

N-1 Perfusion

The increasing pressure to reduce biological manufacturing costs while improving flexibility is driving a renewed interest in perfusion. Perfusion operations deliver high density cell cultures that alleviate the burden of processing large production bioreactor volumes while increasing manufacturing flexibility. Introducing perfusion to your seed train makes it possible to inoculate a higher quantity of cells for one or more production bioreactors, thus increasing process efficiency.
