Microcarriers are commonly used in bioreactor cultures to provide a large growth surface for anchorage-dependent cells, and are typically provided either untreated or gamma-irradiated and ready for use. The process economy comparison performed in this work was made for the preparation step of Cytodex 1 versus Cytodex 1 Gamma microcarriers. Two scales were included: 100 L pilot and 500 L production scales.
