Novel optical CO2 sensor technology in long-term cell culture

In mammalian cell culture, the monitoring and controlling of CO2 important to provide the cells with physiological environment. Deviations from the desired levels can affect cell growth, viability and product quality. CO2 levels are usually measured offline and thus accurate CO2 probe for constant online monitoring would be desirable.

In a collaboration within iConsensus WP4, a novel optical CO2 probe was developed by PreSens and evaluated by an industry partner GSK in a stirred-tank bioreactor. Read the complete application report
