CDMO Microbial Services

Our best-in-class cell line and process development services offer a comprehensive range of capabilities to meet your specific product needs.

Microbial Manufacturing and Production

We have produced 100+ products using microbial-expressed proteins and multiple modes of expression - including secretion (yeast), periplasmic secretion, soluble intracellular expression, and inclusion bodies. The AGC Biologics network has produced eight commercial products using microbial systems.


Microbial Expression Systems

Our microbial services range from cell-line development and process development to clinical and commercial manufacturing. Our expertise includes experience with E. coli, Pichia pastoris with or without methanol induction​, Pseudomonas Fluorescens (PFEnex system), Bacillus (non-sporulating)​, L. casei​, and more.


Microbial Manufacturing Scales

We offer flexible manufacturing scales up to 3,000 L​ and our cell banking services meet the standards of regulatory agencies around the world. We use standard industry systems, including batch and fed-batch methods, to produce microbial drug products.
