Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The use of in-situ near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) as a tool for monitoring four key analytes in a CHO-K1 animal cell culture was investigated. Previous work using on-line NIRS to monitor bioprocesses has involved its application ex-situ where the analyzer is physically outside the fermentor, or to microbial bioprocesses. This novel application of NIRS to monitor analytes within an animal cell culture using a steam sterilizable in-situ fiber optic probe is very important for furthering the use of NIRS within the bioprocessing industry. The method of calibration used to develop the models involved the use of large data sets so that all likely variation in stoichiometry was incorporated within the models. Successful models for glucose, lactate, glutamine, and ammonia were built with Standard Error of Predictions (SEP's) of 0.072 (g/L), 0.0144 (g/L), 0.308 (mM), and 0.036 (mM), respectively of the total concentration range.
