Quality control testing of cell and gene therapy products : an expertise born from a technological challenge

Cell and gene therapy products, part of the Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs), are a breakthrough in modern medicine. When considering the quality control testing of these cutting-edge medicines, specific scientific know-how and equipment are required.

Clean Biologics benefits from the expertise of GMP-certified company Clean Cells which provides innovative analytical tools dedicated to the quality control testing of cell and gene therapies.


Innovative assays for the quality control testing of advanced therapies

Clean Cells’ panel of assays includes tests used for the characterization of traditional biologics but also includes specific methods for:

  • The testing of cell-based therapy products: fast turnaround tools (BACT/ALERT for sterility and numerous qPCR assays) for the detection of contaminants and cytogenetics methods for the performance of G-banding karyoping and studies using FISH (Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization).
  • The testing of gene therapy products: biosafety characterization of all types of viral vectors (lentiviral, adenoviral, AAV), qPCR detection of plasmidic genetic sequences and other sequences of interest or cytoxicity evaluation of CAR-T cells (Chimeric Antigen Receptor T cells) using an innovative luminescence-based assay.
