Dedicated controlled-access animal-free laboratories ensure that at no point in production are these products exposed to potential contamination by animal components or byproducts. Some animal-free proteins are also GMP.
Proteins are manufactured under guidelines that allow for their use as ancillary materials in cell therapy or for further manufacturing processes. They may or may not be manufactured using animal-free processes depending on the characteristics of the given protein.
Animal Component-free Process (ACFP)
ACFP recombinant proteins are expressed in an animal-free certified insect cell line using dedicated animal-free raw materials and labware. Production and purification procedures use equipment and media that are confirmed animal-free but performed outside of our dedicated animal-free laboratory. Some ACFP proteins are also GMP.
The R&D Systems GMP Advantage:
Often our GMP proteins originate from the same clone, sequence, and expression system as our traditional research grade materials. This makes the conversion to GMP as seamless as possible. We can convert an existing protein to GMP or we can completely develop a protein of interest from scratch.
