Dr. Payne will discuss the results of a comparison performed between Catalent's proprietary GPEx® technology and traditional cell line engineering technology. No significant difference was observed for the easy-to-express antibody between the two approaches, however, for the other three problem molecules, GPEx® technology equivalentcell lines outperformed in both protein production and stability.
