Raw Materials Testing for Cell & Gene Therapy Manufacturing

Sidebar Image

Raw Materials TestingEurofins BioPharma Product Testing is well versed in evaluating critical quality attributes (CQAs) of a diverse range of ancillary and raw materials, including monographed and non-monographed materials, used in cell and gene therapy products. Using established GMP methods, platform techniques, and customized methods, Eurofins provides robust, flexible, and high throughput lot release testing for the fast-paced manufacturing of today’s therapies.

Our dedicated Biologics Raw Materials testing team has vast experience in cell and gene therapy manufacturing from early clinical, through process validation, product optimization, and marketed release. With 20 years of biopharmaceutical experience, our teams of scientists have current and relevant expertise in marketed and clinical chimeric antigen (CAR-T) and T-cell receptor (TCR) therapies, as well as manufacturing support for a broad array of viral and plasmid vector modalities. This allows us to immediately leverage impactful knowledge in materials used in apheresis, fractionation, cell selection, activation, gene transfer, expansion, and cryopreservation of cell therapy products as well as transfection, vector production, and purification of gene products.
