Scale-Up Expression

Scaling up flexibility meets different project needs.

PEF caters to the requirements of each project by providing options for scaling up. Protein production is achieved using either the shake flask or bioreactor format.

Shake flask production

Scale-up expression of protein in shake flask (1 – 20 L batch) in all four expression platforms

Microbial fermentation

Bacteria and yeast fermentation in stirred tank bioreactor (1 - 20 L)

Cell culture bioreactor

Insect and mammalian cell culture in rocking motion bioreactor (1 - 25 L)
