Our services

Expect great science. It's in our DNA.

Our services in stable cell line development and recombinant protein manufacturing cover the value chain - from DNA construction and transfection to CHO and HEK process development, to large-scale protein production. Our cGMP compliant facility enables the generation of Master Cell Banks and Master Working Banks (MCB, MWB).

ExcellGene’s reliable process and exceptional CHO cell host are the result of over twenty years of innovation and fine-tuning. Here’s what you can expect.

High Titers

up to 14 g/L, 5 to 10-fold improvement

Speedy timelines

From DNA to highly productive, stable clone in 8 weeks

Diverse protein formats

mAbs, biosimilars, bispecifics, fusion proteins, etc...

Robust cells for scalable processes

up to 10,000 L

Cell line development

Early on in our development of the CHOExpress™ and HEKExpress-293™ systems, we were able to identify highly stable and robust cell lines for transfection, production and scale-up. Because of this, we can now develop cell lines in less than 5 months.

cGMP master cell banking

We provide the highest standard of quality at our Swissmedic inspected facility. Our flexible cGMP plant allows banking of cell cultures for clients that use an immortalized cell line for protein production.

Rapid protein production

Get up to 200 mg of protein in 3 weeks and up to 20 g of protein in 2 months. Our proprietary transient gene expression CHOExpress™ and HEKExpress-293™ cells have been optimized for rapid growth, efficient DNA uptake, high protein expression and high density in suspension cultures (> 30 million cells/mL).

Virus-like particle production

We provide optimization for multi-gene constructs, media optimizations for transfection and product generation. Our system uses no baculovirus and is therefore purely transfection based.

To VLP production

Tox material production

Have you been limited by not having enough materials to properly design your pre-clinical studies in animals? ExcellGene will help you plan experiments without the worry of running short of materials. We can deliver up to 500 grams of drug substance from a single batch.
