Our differences

Validation of tests

All our characterisation and biosafety tests for cell banks and intermediate/ final products are validated and are in compliance with the worldwide regulatory agencies. The protocols and validation reports are totally accessible during an audit or technical visit.

Our laboratories and teams

Clean Cells offer cGMP fully equipped BSL2 and BSL3 with qualified equipment. 80% of our team have a Master or PhD level of Higher education and regularly follow internal training programmes to maintain their expertise.

The cell and virus controls necessary to carry out viral safety testing are produced by Clean Cells in laboratories dedicated to generate Master or Working Cell or Virus Bank.

Our equipment are monitored 24hrs/24 and 7/7.

Regulatory support/Scientific support

The expertise of our regulatory affairs department and scientific support team insure that all your proposals and studies, are in compliance with the latest regulatory requirements that are worldwide imposed.

We will assist you in the completion of a safety dossier to be presented to the regulatory agencies.

Our experience

More than a thousand cell banks/Bulk/final products characterised and secured by Clean Cells.

Large range of cell (CHO, HEK293, PERC6, MRC5, Murine hybridoma, VERO, Avian cells, Sf9…) and viral banks (Adenovirus, Retrovirus, AAV, ALV, Phages…) tested .
