AGC Biologics’ proprietary CHEF1® Expression System accelerates development of cell lines for cGMP biologics production. The innovative platform utilizes robust procedures and reliable raw materials, including chemically defined media, adapted Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, and CHEF1 expression plasmids, to produce high levels of recombinant protein in rapid timeframes.

In this webinar our speakers will address:

  • A detailed technical review of the platform technology
  • An explanation of how pool production enables fast and flexible delivery of early material
  • A discussion of how small-scale models ensure seamless and successful manufacturing
  • New data regarding CHEF1 performance

Join us to learn more about how CHEF1 significantly accelerates and improves the biologics production process with rapid timelines, competitive titers, a robust platform, regulatory acceptance, and reliable manufacturing productivity.
