Suppliers should pass ISO quality system certification and have an effective quality management system.
Hardware facilities such as production workshops should strictly meet the requirements of GMP regulations and provide necessary documentation such as providing audit certificates from third-party authorities, such as drug production license, GMP audit reports from well-known third-party organizations, other qualification documents, etc.
The suppliers should have advanced R&D and production technology, qualified manufacturing process and capabilities, and the capacity for continuous production and supply.
"Good, structurally-defined protein products can reduce the uncertainty and lower the risk in every step of drug research and development.”
Purity testing methods commonly used by ACROBiosystems include SDS-PAGE, HPLC, and MALS.
SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), is an analytical detection technique of proteins. It is mostly used to determine the proportion and content of target and miscellaneous proteins. However, since the proteins are denatured before analysis, it is hard to monitor the aggregation of proteins in solution.
MALS validation of purity is a key advantage of ACROBiosystems,which ensures correct protein structure, controllable protein aggregation state, homogeneity and batch-to-batch consistency. This is also the basis for consistent results of ELISA, SPR, and BLI activity validation. Therefore, we know that customers invested in biopharmaceutical development understand that the aggregation state and batch variation of proteins used are critical.
ACROBiosystems is committed to helping customers minimize the risks of drug research and development, ensuring purity levels for customers, and providing customers with high-quality recombinant proteins that are homogenous, consistent between batches, and more importantly, have the correct structure.

As protein structure is the basis for functional activity, only proteins that are close to its natural conformation can properly perform and mimic its biological functions. In particular, the natural aggregation of proteins and correct formation of disulfide bonds are critical in maintaining the correct structure of proteins, and should be the main focus when developing of target proteins. ACROBiosystems selects HEK293 as the expression system of host cells, since proteins expressed by HEK293 system are better modified, including glycosylation modification, therefore closely resembling the natural conformation within human body. This cannot be achieved by other prokaryotic expression system or non-human eukaryotic system. As a critical raw material of antibody drug development, the high-quality target protein with natural conformation and correct structure can significantly increase the success rate of antibody drug development and reduce the uncertainty of drug development in critical application scenarios, such as antibodies acquisition by immunization, screening of functional antibodies and clinical validation of antibody effectiveness.
In the process of developing a target protein, it can be frequently observed that the same protein product performs completely differently under a real application scenarios. Therefore, it is necessary to establish the goals before the start of R&D and clarify the target application scenarios of the protein.
ACROBiosystems tests our protein under the target application scenario during the development process evaluates the protein performance under a simulated application scenario.
