Cell Bank Manufacturing

BioReliance CRO research professionals are experts at Master Cell Bank production for our clients in Biopharma. Our cGMP production facilities and extensive technical and regulatory expertise provide the support you need for efficient product development to achieve regulatory approval. Facilities for cGMP mammalian and insect master cell banking are located in Rockville, MD and Glasgow, UK.

A master cell bank is critical to therapeutic product development and supports not only clinical development and manufacturing but also the commercial supply phase for biologicals. From the master cell line, a working cell bank is produced to ensure high quality production and for scale up to manufacture.

Successful cell banks include:

  • Maintenance of a single master cell line
  • Working cell banks with low passage numbers
  • Identity confirmation by DNA Fingerprinting
  • Purity testing including Mycoplasma, virus, and fungi detection
  • Stability testing for expression constructs and viral vectors

In short, we ensure your precious cell lines are maintained for optimal production.
