Transient Gene Expression (TGE) is a well-established technology for rapid production of milligram to gram quantities of recombinant proteins in Human Embryonic Kidney (HEK) and Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell lines (1-3) Due to quick turnover and low cost, TGE platform plays more important role in bio pharmaceutical early development stages for two reasons; Firstly, it is essential for large biopharmaceutical companies to screen multiple drug candidates prior to moving forward into the formal development pipeline.
