Cell bioprocessing in space consists of the preparation, cultivation, purification and investigation of cells and their products in the microgravity environment of orbital space flight. Inertial acceleration is used as an independent variable to explore the limits of specific bioprocessing functions, such as cell growth and secretion, gravity-dependent phenomena in cell bioreactors, cell fusion, the influence of thermal convection on processes at cellular dimensions, the electrophoretic separation of cell subpopulations and subcellular particles, and two-phase partitioning of cells, bioparticles, and macromolecules. Analytical cytology techniques are under development for on-orbit application to future cell growth and separation experiments, such as those anticipated in the Space Station era.
