Application: Cell expansion system (Patent ID: US20240060030A1)

The patent filed by Terumo Corp. describes a method and system for expanding cells in a cell expansion system, particularly focusing on T cells and T cell subpopulations like regulatory T cells (Tregs). The system involves loading cells into a bioreactor, manipulating parameters to optimize nutrient and gas exchange, controlling metabolic concentrations, and adjusting system parameters to prevent cell colony formation. The method includes continuously circulating media to feed and expand the cells, as well as harvesting them. Additionally, the system allows for the control of cell residence in the bioreactor, applying coating agents to the cell growth surface, and utilizing ultrafiltration for moving fluids through the system.

Furthermore, the patent also covers methods for controlling the cell expansion system, including tracking events, recording sensor data, and reporting information on a display. It also involves controlling a fleet of cell expansion devices by generating instructions for multiple devices simultaneously and programming them accordingly. The system includes features like actuating pumps at different flow rates, utilizing media bags with flexible housings and ports for fluid exchange, and engaging disposable sets with cell growth chambers and tubing. Additionally, methods for detecting parameters related to the system, determining if they are within predetermined ranges, and sending remote alarms to external devices are also described, with options for email, text message, digital alert, audio alarm, or visual alarm notifications. The parameters monitored include temperature, door position, pressure, flow rate, and concentration, enhancing the overall control and efficiency of the cell expansion system.
