Biochrom

The company
BIOCHROM is a company dedicated to being a primary supplier of cell culture media and quality animal sera. Established in 1981, the company manufactures and distributes the full range of products related to mammalian cell culturing technique: standard cell culture media, complete media tailored for particular cell types and cell lines, custom formulations and animal sera, such as Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). All sera are prescreened prior to acceptance; only those lots that meet strictly quality control requirements are accepted for further processing and subsequent sale to customers. Serum products are tested for sterility, adventitious viral agents, physico-chemical parameters, and biological performance.
The manufacturing processes are designed for the specific needs of customers engaged in biotechnological research, developement and biopharmaceutical production.
BIOCHROM specializes in meeting customers‘ specifications and regulatory concerns, to facilitate the manufacture of custom media, consistent with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). The media are produced in a strictly controlled environment; chemicals used conform, where applicable, to grade standards of European Pharmacopoeia and US Pharmacopoeia.
Cell culture as a platform technology, and tissue engineering is becoming an important part in human health care. As part of this exciting development, BIOCHROM puts growing research efforts in the developement of media suitable for applications such as somatic cell therapy, tissue replacement and organ transplantation, manufactured according to GMP standards.
Through in-licensing and numerous research projects with both universities and biotech companies, BIOCHROM is connected to intellectual resources specializing in today’s cell culture applications.

Manufacturing standards
BIOCHROM offers highest quality and competitive pricing at the same time; all manufacturing processes and strict quality systems enable and guarantee low endotoxin levels for liquid bulk products. BIOCHROM follows Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines: this requires validation, and documentation of all operational procedures, systems, functions, facilities, materials, and equipment. Products are prepared by an aseptic process for which each step has been validated to ensure that all liquids do meet the highest standards.
BIOCHROM has established Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for all its manufacturing and quality procedures. The company validates its equipment and processes on a regular level to ensure that they meet specific designed criteria in adaptation to internal and external quality assurance. Audits are performed to verify that manufacturing and quality control functions are being properly executed.

Sterile Process Liquids, Buffers and Balanced Salts from BIOCHROM
Rapid advances in biopharmaceutical production have created a growing need for reliable sources of sterile process liquids delivered ‘just in time’. BIOCHROM’s production of bulk sterile liquids is based on its source of highly purified water, that does meet the Water for Injection (‘WFI’) criteria. All commonly used buffers, balanced salts and cell culture media are available according to customer’s own specifications, manufactured under GMP, and ISO 9001 guidelines. Production incorporate a rigorous specification and approval process that includes screening of all incoming related raw material, this specifies Ph.Eur. grade components, and/or components of non-animal origin.
All BIOCHROM process liquids are intensively tested prior to QC release, and packed in containers ranging from 100, 500 and 1000 ml PET-bottles, 100 ml to 50 ltrs media bags or larger volumes of 200, 500 and 1000 ltrs media bags, shipped out in appropriate stainless steel containers.
