The production of biopharmaceuticals in cell culture involves stringent controls to ensure product safety and quality. To meet these requirements, quality by design principles must be applied during the development of cell culture processes so that quality is built into the product by understanding the manufacturing process. One key aspect is process analytical technology, in which comprehensive online monitoring is used to identify and control critical process parameters that affect critical quality attributes such as the product titer and purity. The application of industry-ready technologies such as turbidimetry and dielectric spectroscopy provides a deeper understanding of biological processes within the bioreactor and allows the physiological status of the cells to be monitored on a continuous basis. This in turn enables selective and targeted process controls to respond in an appropriate manner to process disturbances. This chapter outlines the principles of online dielectric spectroscopy and turbidimetry for the measurement of optical density as applied to mammalian and insect cells cultivated in stirred-tank bioreactors either in suspension or as adherent cells on microcarriers.
