Overview Service Process Examples and Solutions Frequently Asked Questions


Custom cell line development is a process by which specific cell lines are engineered to express or suppress particular genes, enabling the study of gene function, protein expression, and cellular responses. This process involves the genetic modification of cells to introduce new traits or capabilities, such as the production of recombinant proteins, the expression of reporter genes, or the knockout of specific genes. Custom cell lines are invaluable tools in research, drug discovery, biotechnology, and therapeutic development, providing a controlled and reproducible system for studying cellular processes and testing new treatments.

Service Process

The process of custom cell line development involves several critical and interrelated steps:

  1. Project Consultation: Collaborating with researchers to define specific cell line requirements, including target gene(s), desired modifications, and intended applications.
  2. Vector Design and Construction: Designing and constructing expression vectors or CRISPR/Cas9 systems tailored to the specific modifications needed for the cell line.
  3. Cell Line Transfection/Transduction: Introducing the genetic material into the host cells using transfection or viral transduction methods to achieve stable integration or transient expression.
  4. Selection and Clonal Isolation: Selecting successfully modified cells using selectable markers and isolating single-cell clones to ensure clonal purity and stability.
  5. Cell Line Characterization: Characterizing the modified cell lines to confirm the presence and functionality of the genetic modifications. This includes genomic PCR, Western blotting, fluorescence imaging, and functional assays.
  6. Validation and Quality Control: Validating the cell lines through comprehensive testing to ensure they meet the desired specifications and are free from contamination or unintended modifications.
  7. Optimization and Scale-Up: Refining the cell line development process based on initial results and scaling up production to meet the required quantities for research or commercial use.
