Manufacturing certainty from advanced quality mRNA reagents

Roche fit-for-purpose and GMP Grade mRNA reagents

Safety and security at the heart of every product

For over 30 years, we have been a valued partner of therapeutic manufacturers, completing 150 projects to develop and produce enzymes, proteins and other raw materials for diagnostic and biopharmaceutical production. Always abreast with market developments, we are a key player in enabling a new generation of mRNA therapeutics.

Our guiding tenet is to minimize variation of products built on our raw materials by ensuring best quality, high performance within narrow tolerances, and reliable delivery at the right scale across the globe. Our multitiered approach to quality makes every reagent a building block for secure production and strengthened patient safety. 

A core commitment to quality, safety and efficacy

An ISO13485-certified Quality Management System (QMS) governs our production and supply of mRNA raw materials. The system dictates requirements across our operations — from product and manufacturing to management and transparency — that are relevant to the in-vitro diagnostic and medical device industry.

mRNA reagents with GMP Grade 

Building upon our QMS, Good Manufacturing Process (GMP) at CustomBiotech means more than compliance. It means deploying our production in a way that harmonizes the design, monitoring and control of processes and facilities according to the highest quality and validation standards. 

  • Equipment cleaning procedures are validated, or single use is established
  • Analytical quality control methods for release testing are validated
  • Manufacturing processes, which cannot be subsequently verified, are validated
  • A periodic review of process validations is performed

Fit-for-Purpose aligns material to its intended use

 

A final quality tier, our fit-for-purpose requirements for raw materials set and control property tolerances based on the sensitivity of their intended use to those specific attributes. Beyond meeting standards of consistent performance and material purity, our reagents for mRNA synthesis are produced under stringent conditions and undergo additional scrutiny.

Impurity testing
