STRAIN AND FERMENTATION DEVELOPMENT SERVICES
YIELDS ARE NUMBER ONE
We offer you our strong expertise in developing strains based on E.coli host systems to produce peptides, proteins (soluble and insoluble), plasmid DNA products, and vaccines.
Richter-Helm BioLogics provides strain development modules for protein-based products with your choice of amino acid sequence or expression construct, or even using your candidate seed strain. Chemical and heat induction systems are available. We are also able to screen strains to determine which is most appropriate for producing your plasmid-DNA product.
Our strain development activities can be flexibly configured to suit your needs. The possibilities include:
Strain development is very closely coordinated with fermentation development, with both being handled by the experienced process development team of Richter-Helm BioLogics.
We can flexibly vary USP development components depending on your needs. The portfolio includes feasibility studies, complete USP development, and fermentation adaptation and/or optimization studies. The available general fermentation development services include:
“Since launching our joint development project, we have been able to rely fully and consistently on Richter-Helm BioLogics.”
FROM PARAMETER SCREENING TO ROBUSTNESS TESTING
In addition, cell harvesting techniques such as centrifugation or crossflow filtration can be selected. Rapid at-line and offline PD analyses are available throughout the development phase, e.g.:
Various process parameters can be investigated to establish the most appropriate and productive fermentation approach, e.g.
Design of experiment (DoE) tools applying full or fractional factorial design modules are routinely used to assist in developing and optimizing processes or, if applicable, to supplement parameter screenings etc.
