Testa Challenge results: highly accurate predictions with Timegated® Raman
17:55 Sun 22.05.2022
After our long journey with the Testa Challenge, participating on-site for almost three weeks, analyzing and modeling the Raman spectra as well as studying and presenting the results, we now have the encouraging bioprocess monitoring results to share with all of you.

Timegated® Raman prediction follows the reference values
Testa Challenge results in a video format.
In the Testa Challenge, we were monitoring the Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells which are the most common mammalian cell line. We measured several metabolites, nutrients, and proteins in real-time in bioreactors during the whole biopharmaceutical process. All these parameters were measured simultaneously.
In these graphs below, the red marks represent the reference values obtained from laboratory analysis. The green curve is the result of Raman analysis. As it can be seen here the Raman prediction is perfectly following the reference values and therefore highly accurate.
This technique holds the promise of measuring not only the critical parameters but also the product that is being produced effectively. Read more about our time-gated technology here.
Time-gated Raman analyses (green curves) follow accurately the reference values obtained from laboratory analyses (red marks).
Improved bioprocess control with time-gated Raman technology
Looking at the results, we can see that the benefits of time-gated Raman technology for the bioprocess development and control are significant:
New medicines faster to market by better understanding the process mechanisms
Decreased number of process failures by better understanding the processing status in the production phase
Optimized process control and improved productivity as well as product quality with real-time data of the parameters
Reduced operational costs by not needing analytical consumables with our technology and saving the analytical professionals’ time
