At the Boston Institute of Biotechnology (BIB), we’re at the forefront of revolutionizing the biopharmaceutical industry through our advanced cell line development processes. Our commitment to innovation, efficiency, and quality is not just about advancing science; it’s about bringing life-changing therapies to patients faster and more affordably. This overview provides a glimpse into how our cutting-edge techniques and collaborative approach are setting new standards in therapeutic production.
Our Approach to Cell Line Development
Cell line development is a cornerstone of biopharmaceutical research and production, involving the creation of cell lines that can produce therapeutic proteins, antibodies, and vaccines. At BIB, we’ve refined this process into an art, ensuring that every step, from host cell selection to cell line banking, is optimized for the highest yield and quality.
The Journey of Cell Line Development at BIB
- Optimal Host Cell Selection: We begin by choosing the most suitable host cells, predominantly using Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells for their compatibility with human protein structures.
- Precision Transfection and Expression: Our cutting-edge genetic engineering, including CRISPR-Cas9 technology, allows us to insert genes accurately into host cells, ensuring high-level expression of therapeutic proteins.
- Efficient Screening and Selection: Leveraging robotics and AI, we’ve streamlined the identification of top-performing cells, significantly accelerating the path to monoclonal cell line creation.
- Rigorous Characterization and Stability: Through comprehensive testing, we guarantee that our cell lines maintain their productivity and genetic integrity, even at large scales.
- Scalable Bank Creation: High-performing cell lines are expanded and preserved in master and working cell banks, ensuring a reliable supply for production.
Leading with Innovation
Our innovative practices at BIB set us apart in the field of biotechnology. Here’s what makes our approach unique:
- Advanced Gene Editing: By harnessing the power of the latest gene-editing tools, we enhance the productivity and stability of our cell lines beyond conventional methods.
- Automated High-Throughput Screening: Our use of automated platforms and AI-driven analysis shortens the timeline for selecting the highest yielding cell lines.
- In-depth Cell Line Characterization: We employ a suite of analytical techniques to meet and exceed quality standards, crucial for the success of clinical applications.
- Collaboration at Its Core: Our work thrives on collaboration with industry and academic partners, driving forward the development of innovative therapies.
