Cell Culture Process Comparison

Quantum® Cell Expansion System

Product Confidence.
Process Scalability.
The Quantum system* is an automated cell culture platform that can help simplify the open, labor-intensive manual tasks associated with flask-based culture, helping improve the reproducibility and scalability of your cell culture process to meet your overall manufacturing requirements.

FLASKS


Labor-intensive, manual process

Possibility of variation between lab personnel and each culture

Numerous open steps through the process

Temperature fluctuations as flasks are moved in and out of the incubator

Manual pipette process to feed cells and remove waste

Cell harvest spans hours/days*

Variable surface area*

Current good manufacturing practice (cGMP)-grade clean room, hood, incubator and storage for flasks

*Dependent on the number and capacity of flasks

QUANTUM
SYSTEM


Automated, customizable process

Reproducible process and a high degree of scalability

Functionally closed system from cell loading through harvest

Continuous control of temperature

Automated and customizable control of cell feeding and waste removal

Cells harvested in as little as 20 minutes

2.1 m2 (6.9 ft2) of surface area for commercial bioreactor

1.7 m2 surface area for Research Use Only Cell Expansion Set R17 bioreactor

0.3 m2 (3 ft2) footprint

*Customers are responsible for validating the use of the Quantum to expand cells for their intended therapy.
