The kits are designed specifically for HCP detection in your gene expression system. All reagents needed to quantify host cell protein contamination for up to 24 samples are included:
Host cells used as expression systems in biopharmaceutical products contain hundreds to thousands of host cell proteins (HCPs). It is crucial to sufficiently remove HCPs from your biologic early, as high concentrations can affect the safety and efficacy of the drug. The FDA regulates that HCPs should be reduced to low levels.
