Trusted cell characterization, quality assurance, and quality control

Solutions for Characterization of CAR-T Cells, Contaminant Detection, Toxicity (CARTOX) and Cytokine Storm

As CAR-T therapy development progresses, cell characterization and safety measures must be implemented and documented thoroughly. It is vital to continually ensure cellular identity and function. Cell cultures must also be verified to be free from contaminants. These processes are often time-sensitive, and classical sterility testing takes a long time, so an additional rapid solution is important. Real-time screening and analysis solutions provided by Sartorius enable continuous phenotypic & functional analysis over time, and contaminant-free systems coupled with rapid testing options help ensure safety.

Don’t compromise your ambition. Gain trust in your cell characterization efforts by using the best equipment and software available. The Incucyte® Live-Cell Analysis System allows you to continually visualize and analyze the health and integrity of your cell cultures while the Intellicyt® iQue3 enables characterization efforts rapidly and with minimal sample volumes. The Virus Counter® Platform can be used to continue to assess the quality and quantity of your viral particles to support process development.  Microsart® ATMP rapid real-time PCR mycoplasma and bacterial detection kits enable fast, easy contaminant detection for assurance of patient safety prior to treatment.

Application Notes:

Pipetting with Picus® and Tacta®

Reliability of an assay depends strongly on the preparation phase. The programmable electronic pipette Picus reduces variability between users. Selecting a multichannel pipette will speed up your work and improve cell well-being by reducing the time outside the incubator. Both electronic Picus and manual Tacta pipettes guarantee the best pipetting ergonomics.
