Quality controlQuality control testing : at the core of our expertise

GMP-certified companies Clean Cells and Naobios have been involved since their creation in the testing of thousands of biopharmaceuticals including vaccines, cell and gene therapies, antibodies, recombinant proteins, bacteriophages cocktails and many more.

Clean Cells is a worldwide market leader in the quality control testing of pharmaceutical products and has developed a substantial GMP assay portfolio critical to their evaluation according to biosafety, purity, identity and potency criteria.

In 2019, Naobios brought its analytical capacities including physicochemical, titration and quantification methods as part of its manufacturing programs.


Evaluation of biological products at the different steps of manufacturing

Clean Cells and Naobios benefit from a large panel of assays required to the full evaluation of biopharmaceuticals and of in-process substances at pre-clinical, clinical and commercial phases according to global regulatory guidelines. All steps are covered by our analytical capacities and include:

  • Reagents and media
  • Cell and virus banks
  • Harvests
  • Drug substance
  • Drug product
  • Ancillary products
  • In-process controls

Methods specific to quality control testing of biologics in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practises

Biological products need specific scientific expertise and regulatory knowledge due to their particular nature. Clean Biologics offers a number of validated methods for the complete evaluation in a GMP context of the following criteria:

  • Biosafety: includes sterility testing, mycoplasma detection and eradication, adventitious virus and retrovirus testing (in vitro, in vivo);
  • Identity: includes qPCR/RT-qPCR based assays;
  • Purity: qPCR and ELISA based detection and quantification of impurities
  • Potency: titration, cell-based assays and custom-made assays.
  • Physicochemical properties;
