Bioproduction processes use a variety of host cells (bacterial, yeast, mammalian, insect or plant cells) to produce the biotherapeutic protein of interest, but contaminating proteins derived from the expression system are also produced.
These protein contaminants, called host cell proteins (HCPs), are residual protein impurities that potentially reduce the quality and efficacy of the biotherapeutic product, as well as patient safety.
Regulatory authorities require these HCPs to be monitored and quantified using a gold-standard method, the sandwich ELISA.
Agro-Bio offers a comprehensive HCP solution for bioproduction projects.
We offer a complete, custom solution to your HCP issues:
Our service also includes secure storage of the sera and antibodies produced, as well as monitoring of the stability of these critical reagents and ELISA kits.
