Abstract: The therapeutic efficacy of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) is dependent upon their glycosylation patterns. As the largest group of currently approved biopharmaceuticals, the microheterogeneity in mAb oligosaccharide profiles deriving from mammalian cell production is a challenge to the biopharmaceutical industry. Disengaging the glycosylation process from the cell may offer significant enhancement of product quality and allow better control and reproducibility in line with the Quality by Design paradigm. Three potential designs of an Artificial Golgi reactor implementing targeted sequential glycosylation of mAbs are proposed including a (i) microcapillary film reactor, (ii) packed bed reactor with non-porous pellets, and (iii) packed bed reactor with porous pellets. Detailed mathematical models are developed to predict their performance for a range of design and operational parameters. While all three reactor designs can achieve desired conversion levels, the choice of a particular one depends on the required throughput and the associated cost of enzymes and co-substrates.
