The Process is the Product – The Master Cell Bank 2

The Critical Importance of the Master Cell Bank Our last post, ‘The Process is the Product – The Master Cell Bank 1‘, unequivocally presented the genetically-engineered cells that produce ‘protein-based drugs’, as the foundation of biopharmaceutical production. So fundamental are these cell lines in fact, that if a manufacturer were to lose them to contamination for example, further production would be impossible. Additionally, restoration … Read More

This inextricable relationship between the process and the product is not seen with the production of conventional chemically-derived drugs. With conventional drugs, it is not uncommon for the sequence of production steps to be altered with little effect on the final … Read More
