Process Development

EirGenix is a contract development and manufacturing organization that performs high quality and cost-effective services supporting our clients in development, analytical testing, and GMP manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals from pre-clinical to commercial manufacturing

EirGenix has strong process development capabilities in both microbial and mammalian systems to provide our clients process development, process optimization, and process troubleshooting. We have successfully delivered results to meet clients’ requirement in product productivity, product quality, and process cost effectiveness. Our previous project experience includes recombinant proteins, plasmid DNA, fusion proteins, monoclonal antibodies, and biosimilars.

Upstream Development

Our well-established process development team is capable of optimizing clients’ process to meet regulatory and economic requirement.In the R&D stage, EirGenix provides development services from shake flask up to 50L single use bioreactor for mammalian system, up to 20L fermentor for microbial system. The upstream development services include media screening, feeding improvement, critical control parameters to develop or optimize the process from quantity and quality perspective.

  • 2L and 5L bench top bioreactors for mammalian cells
  • 50L single use bioreactors for mammalian cells
  • 2L and 20L fermentors for microbial cells

Downstream Development

Our downstream development team provides a comprehensive development platform for our clients.With this platform, we streamline transfer to deliver successful results for both existing and novel process development and optimization.Previous mammalian project experience includes recombinant protein, fusion protein, and monoclonal antibody. Previous microbial project experience includes recombinant protein (both inclusion body and soluble protein), pegylated protein, fusion protein, and Plasmid DNA.
