When Michael Zang-Gandor and Christine Gandor founded EUGENEX they brought a more
than 10 years experience with serum- and protein-free cell culture and a broad repertoire
of know-how and skills in mammalian cell culture, molecular genetics and gene expression.
In 1992 they established the first expression system with protein-free growing CHO
(Chinese Hamster ovary) cells at the Institute of Biotechnology, Swiss Federal Institute
of Technology, Zurich.
