Monitoring of Yeast and Insect Cells in Biotechnology

Rapid Determination of Cell Viability by Impedance Flow Cytometry

In a collaboration with the University of Basel and the Doppelleu Boxer Brewery, we analyzed insect cell cultures and beer fermentations with our Ampha Z32 Impedance Flow Cytometer. The intriguing results were used to optimize the production processes.

Based on these findings we published an article in the journal “Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology” on the determination of cell status, cell viability and optimal harvest time in eukaryotic cell cultures.
