New technologies generating successful cell and gene therapy approaches have contributed to a global growth of institutions that cultivate stem cells, T cells and other primary cell types under stringent conditions. These cells are exquisitely reactive to their environment and challenging to manage. For any therapeutic designed for use in a human patient, careful safeguards are inherent to the development and production. Good manufacturing practices (GMP) must be followed. As part of GMP, working in a cleanroom setting helps to produce a therapy which is safe and effective, pure, and of high quality. Culturing cells in a cleanroom under GMP comes with new challenges, and require a CO₂ incubator that can help meet these challenges by reducing risk to the therapy, including features to control particulates and contamination, compatibility with enhanced cleaning procedures, documentation to support validation processes and certification for ISO Class 5 and Grade A/B use in accordance with ISO 14644-1.
- Review the global increase in cell and gene therapy applications
- Describe the needs for cleanroom equipment
- Explore attributes and certifications that make a CO₂ incubator compatible for cleanroom work
- Demonstrate that incubator performance can vary and how the parameters affect cultured cells
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
