Every plasmid is different and varying parameters can affect yield and quality. We believe it is critical that these paramaters be optimized prior to the onset of a project.
That is why we will work with you to define the critical stability and quality specifications for your unique plasmid.
Process Development Project
Our process development projects include the following:
Cell Bank Optimization
The process development lab evaluates a series of cell lines for the specific product, and screens a number of colonies to generate a high quality cell bank. The transformation and cell banking processes may be conducted in the GMP plant with evaluations performed in the research facilities. Therefore, GMP and research cell banks can be produced from the same origin.
A series of 10 L fermentation runs are conducted under various growth conditions. Biomass, yield, and quality are evaluated and assessed to maximize productivity and quality for downstream applications.
Small-scale research purification studies are performed using the same methods and materials as large-scale. Conditions are optimized based on the size and characteristics of the product. Quality Control performs a series of stringent evaluation assays on the final product which, once approved, is delivered to the customer.
