A simple kinetic model is developed to describe the dynamic behavior of myeloma cell growth and cell metabolism. Glucose, glutamine as well as lysine are considered as growth limiting substrates. The cell growth was restricted as soon as the extracellular lysine is exhausted and then intracellular lysine becomes a growth limiting substrate. In addition, a metabolic regulator model together with the Monod model is used to deal with the growth lag phase after inoculation or feeding. By using these models, concentrations of substrates and metabolites, as well as densities of viable and dead cells are quantitatively described. One batch cultivation and two fed-batch cultivations with pulse feeding of nutrients are used to validate the model.

    • "In contrast to xanthan and pullulan fermentations, curdlan fermentation is a typical two-stage process, and curdlan can only be produced under nitrogen-limited conditions. A nitrogen-controlled cell growth model has been constructed to describe CHO cell growth [22] [23]. A modified Monod kinetic model that incorporates nitrogen-controlled growth with heterologous substrate was also constructed to describe cell growth and curdlan fermentation: "

    ABSTRACT: Dissolved oxygen tension (DOT) is an important factor influencing curdlan fermentative production by Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749. Therefore, optimization of dissolved oxygen profile is crucial to improve curdlan production. In this study, an unstructured mathematical models that consider nitrogen source as growth-limiting substrates were developed to estimate the kinetic parameters of cell growth, curdlan formation, and glucose consumption during Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749 fermentation at various DOTs (5–75%). The estimated kinetic parameters were used to establish models with Origin 8.0. All models of kinetic parameters were coupled with the kinetic model derived from Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749 fermentation to determine the effect of DOT on curdlan fermentation. The combined kinetic models satisfactorily fit the experimental data. The optimal dissolved oxygen profile was obtained using genetic algorithms coupled with iterative dynamic programming algorithms in MATLAB 10b. The optimal dissolved oxygen during curdlan production (20–120 h) was approximately 52% DOT, and the maximum curdlan concentration of 48.5 g/L was obtained at this DOT profile. To our knowledge, this study is the first to optimize DOT for curdlan fermentation under nitrogen-limited conditions. This report significantly contributes to the improvement of curdlan production on an industrial scale.

    • "It is, however, usually relevant but depending on the used medium and process duration (Borchers et al. 2013; Glacken et al. 1988; Ozturk and Palsson 1990). Amino acid depletion has been considered in another model developed by Liu et al. (2008). Knowledge about metabolism and its control can be incorporated but usually not in a systematic manner. "

    ABSTRACT: We review major modeling strategies and methods to understand and simulate the macroscopic behavior of mammalian cells. These strategies comprise two important steps: the first step is to identify stoichiometric relationships for the cultured cells connecting the extracellular inputs and outputs. In a second step, macroscopic kinetic models are introduced. These relationships together with bioreactor and metabolite balances provide a complete description of a system in the form of a set of differential equations. These can be used for the simulation of cell culture performance and further for optimization of production.

    ABSTRACT: Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC) are a promising cell source for the manufacturing of cell therapy or tissue-engineered implants. In part A of this publication a fixed-bed bioreactor system based on non-porous borosilicate glass spheres and procedures for the automated expansion of hMSC with high yield and vitality was introduced. Part B of this study deals with the modeling of the process in order to transfer the bioreactor system from the laboratory to the production scale. Relevant model parameters were obtained by fitting them to the experimental data of hMSC-TERT cultivations in scales up to 300 cm3. Scale-up calculations were carried out exemplarily for a target cell number of twenty billion cells.
