Expansion and harvest of fish stem cells using the scale-X™ bioreactor

A promising alternative for scaled up production of cultivated fish

About 90 percent of all edible fish stocks are already considered maximally exploited or overexploited, while demand continues to grow with the increasing global population, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Environmental pollution as well as the growing need for medical treatments and feed makes aquaculture a non sustainable option for the mass consumption market. Cultivated fish provide a viable answer to these challenges however, scalable production platforms that enable cost efficient, low footprint cell expansion and harvest are needed to meet this demand.

In the case study, rainbow trout and salmon cells are seeded and grown in the scale-X™ bioreactor. The fixed bed supported rapid cell attachment and optimal cell growth for rainbow trout and salmon cell lines.
