Cell-Ess is the world's first universal titer boost and enhancer that works across a wide range of media systems.  It can be used as a building block to create robust media to address the cell culture demands of bioproduction.  Cell-Ess is a chemically-defined and animal component free supplement that delivers critical components, including essential fats, needed for membrane synthesis.  Its patent-pending lipid delivery technology limits oxidation, degradation, and adherence to bioproduction vessels.  In a new 5-minute video, Dr. Elhofy and Essential Pharmaceuticals CEO Allan Weber discuss what makes Cell-Ess so unique and how it's revolutionizing media optimization.

"The data published in this journal, as well as additional studies performed by other groups, demonstrate that Cell-Ess consistently increases protein productivity regardless of the media and feed scheme utilized," says Dr. Elhofy.  "The increase in protein productivity has not been shown to impact cell metabolism or glycosylation."

"In order for a study to be published in a peer-reviewed journal, its experimental design and result interpretation must meet rigorous standards," says Allan Weber.  "The acceptance of Dr. Elhofy's study for publication confirms the findings of multiple independent groups that Cell-Ess reproducibly boosts protein productivity in a variety of cell culture conditions.  Cell-Ess is a game changer for those that aim to improve the efficiency of biotherapeutic development and manufacture."
