Quality Control of Biologics

Regulatory &
Quality

User driven. Data Informed.

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is a fast and reliable quality control test for adventitious agent detection and viral stock characterization which can supplement and potentially replace sub-optimal traditional methods.

The biomanufacturing industry is entering a new phase and regulatory authorities have recognized the potential of NGS with regulations now being revised to take advantage of this method. The final adoption of these new regulations is planned for 2021/2022 with a standardization working group having been established by the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC).

Why PathoQuest?

The company has fully validated NGS-based testing methods, from sample preparation protocols to actionable reports, including bioIT analysis, based on ICHQ2R1 guidelines.
Our approach can be used in GMP environment.
Our IT infrastructure and the associated data integrity and security are in compliance with 21 CFR part 11.
We are the 1st French laboratory with a GLP certificate grade A for NGS analysis following the successful inspection of our lab by ANSM in December 2019 (“high-throughput sequencing detection of incidental replicative virus test in eukaryote cells”)..
As per September 2020, our french site has obtained the administrative authorization of the Pharmaceutical Establishment from the French ANSM for its biological drug testing activities.
