Keeping the 'Express' in Protein Expression


A biopharmaceutical company with novel technology for rapid expression of protein therapeutics in cellular-free systems asked VWR Custom Manufacturing Services to manufacture a complex fermentation media for use in their production processes.


With little experience in producing powder media blends and an aggressive timeline for fulfillment, the company chose to leverage our powder handling and blending capabilities to rapidly develop and scale up complex, multi-component fermentation media.


Instead of spending time on manufacturing media, the customer was able to focus its resources on developing the new protein expression technology.
