During this podcast, he answers the following questions:
  1. 1. What role do yeast extracts play in biopharmaceutical production?
  2. 2. What types of measures are taken to ensure consistency of yeast extracts?
  3. 3. Are yeast extracts applied in the same manner as other media supplements like protein hydrolysates?
  4. 4. Are the yeast extracts that are used in cell culture media the same as those used for microbiological media?
  5. 5. Why do many firms combine yeast extracts with protein hydrolysates during medium optimization activities?
  6. 6. What are you most looking forward to learning during the Biopharmaceutical Raw Materials track at Biopharmaceutical Development and Production Week?
