Cell Bank Preparation
Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing offers expert capabilities for the preparation and characterization of a wide variety of mammalian (including human stem cells) and insect cell banks. We offer GMP production master and working cell banks, GMP non-production master and working cell banks and R&D cell banks, as well as banking for end of production cells upon request. We perform all GMP production cell banking in our Grade A/B or ISO5/7 clean room suites, in accordance with EMA and or FDA requirements, and prepare all other banks in clean cell culture labs where no work with adventitious agents occurs.
