Join this webinar to learn how Sanofi utilises online process mass spectrometry for continuous respiratory gas analysis to improve process insight and drive better outcomes.

About this webinar

Respiratory gas analysis is a non-invasive way of characterising a fermentation or cell culture process.

Over many years Thermo Scientific Gas Analysis Mass Spectrometers have proven effective in monitoring bacterial and microbial processes. More recently, there has been increasing interest in mammalian cell cultures because they offer the prospect of radical advances in vaccines, monoclonal antibodies and gene therapy. Analysis of the respiratory gases being fed into and produced from fermentations and cell cultures is an ideal way of characterising the behaviour and productivity of the cells during the process. 

Hear from Marie Izac, Vaccine Drug Substance Unit Head at Sanofi and Dan Merriman of Thermo Fisher Scientific, who will discuss how Sanofi utilises online mass spectrometry for continuous respiratory gas analysis to improve process insight and drive better outcomes.

Key takeaways

  • The simplicity of implementing high quality respiratory gas analysis by MS
  • How MS is a flexible and reliable method for determining critical process parameters
  • Discover how MS has moved into the mainstream for process analytics.
