Manufacturing Workflow

Cell line engineering manufacturing workflow


  • Customers can choose to provide an in-house cell line at no additional charge. During the onboarding process, we perform mycoplasma and sterility testing, as well as assess transfectability and single cell dilution growth characteristics.
  • In parallel with the cell line assessment phase, we also design and evaluate reagents to be used in the manufacturing process.
  • During the cell line engineering phase, our team performs the desired edit(s) defined in the statement of work. Throughout the process, our Project Management team provides regular updates and will contact you immediately if any issue or complication should arise during the manufacturing process.
  • After manufacturing is complete, the cell line is validated for the desired edit. As standard, we validate at the genomic level with Sanger sequencing and for our reporter cell lines we provide a functional readout that verifies reporter expression.
