Earlier this month, two members of the LumaCyte team attended and presented at the 8th annual ISBiotech Spring meeting. The meeting was organized into 3 concurrent tracks, Viral Vectors and Vaccines, Cell Therapy, and Baculovirus Expression Technology. Although all the talks were high quality, we have highlighted a few of our favorites.Read More

One of the first responders at any infection or injury site in a host are macrophages. A type of white blood cell, macrophages contribute to the innate immune system by rapidly fighting infections in a non-specific way and “teach” the adaptive immune system...Read More
Let’s go back to the basics for a moment and talk about antibodies (Abs). Active and passive Ab immunization has saved millions of lives over the years with therapies that, respectively, induce our own immune system to produce target-specific antibodies, or that harness the quick action and effective power of another’s.Read More
Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells and other cultured mammalian cells have been used as an ideal line for biomanufacturing proteins of interest. When put under osmotic stress, these cells often display higher specific productivity.Read More
This year's particularly bad flu season has scientists heavily focused on identifying better ways to produce the influenza vaccine. This illustrates the importance of cell-based flu vaccine manufacturing processes and the increased flexibility they provide.Read More
Viral quantification involves the counting of viruses or viral molecules in a known volume to determine their concentration. It plays an essential role in studies carried out in the fields of recombinant protein production, viral vaccine production and infectious disease.Read More
Continuous processing has been utilized at scale in the chemical industry for decades due to its increased production efficiencies, reduced capital costs, and improved...Read More
