      iPSC Expansion and Banking

      GMP iPSC expansion and banking refer to the process of manufacturing iPSCs (induced pluripotent stem cells) using good manufacturing practices (GMP) standards. This process involves expanding iPSCs in a controlled environment under GMP conditions to ensure the highest quality and consistency of the final product. The expanded iPSCs are then stored in a GMP-compliant cell bank for future use in research or clinical applications.

      If you are looking for a secure, safe storage space for your unique cells, Applied StemCell offers cell banking with 24/7 monitoring in a state-of-the-art facility. Whether you are looking for master cell bank or working cell bank services, we can customize your service to address your project requirements.

      The GMP iPSC expansion and banking process typically involves rigorous quality control measures, including monitoring of the cell growth rate, viability, and genetic stability. The final iPSC product is also tested to confirm that it meets the required specifications for identity, purity, and potency.

      GMP iPSC expansion and banking is an important step in the development of iPSC-based therapies, as it ensures that the cells used for research or clinical applications are of the highest quality and consistency, minimizing the risk of adverse effects or treatment failure.

    • GMP-Grade Cell Batch Testing

      GMP Grade Cell Batch Testing

      Need quality control (QC) testing for your potential cell or gene therapies? Applied StemCell offers GMP-grade cell batch testing. As a CDMO, we have well-established QC procedures. Leverage our QC capabilities and allow our team of experts to safely and efficiently conduct your safety testing. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.

      GMP-grade cell batch testing refers to a set of quality control tests that are performed on a batch of cells intended for use in human clinical trials or commercial production. GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) is a set of guidelines and regulations that ensure the quality, safety, and efficacy of pharmaceutical products, including cell-based therapies.

      GMP-grade cell batch testing involves a series of assays and tests to confirm the identity, purity, potency, and safety of the cells. These tests include tests for sterility, endotoxin levels, mycoplasma contamination, viability, and identity of the cells. In addition, potency assays are performed to confirm the desired biological activity of the cells.

      GMP-grade cell batch testing is a critical step in the manufacturing process of cell-based therapies, as it ensures that each batch of cells is of consistent quality and meets the necessary standards for clinical use. GMP-grade cell batch testing is performed by qualified personnel in a GMP-compliant facility, and the results are documented in a batch record, which serves as a record of the testing and manufacturing process.

    • iPSC based CAR-NK & CAR-T Assay Services

      As gene editing technologies evolve, the number of potential engineered cell-based treatments continues to increase. With tools such as CRISPR and TARGATTTM, it is easier than ever before to insert chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) genes into iPSCs that can be further differentiated into natural killer (NK) or T cells. While there is still plenty of cancer immunotherapy research to be done, CAR-iNK and CAR-iT cell engineering provides a great opportunity for the development of therapeutics that could potentially target and eliminate various forms of cancer. These new cell therapies could be revolutionary, but before entering clinical trials, it is important to ensure these candidates are effective and safe.

      Whether you are looking to start your in vitro experiments or in vivo preclinical studies, Applied StemCell can help you design the right efficacy, safety, or toxicity assay for your cancer immunotherapy research. ASC offers a series of customizable iPSC-based CAR-NK and CAR-T cell assay services.
