Irisbiosciences is focused on the development, manufacturing and marketing of products for bio-/pharmaceutical research and development, namely 3D cell culture products, tissue models and human & stem cells for in-vitro experimentation.

Company premises include a GMP facility with clean rooms (Classes A, C and D) and the company operates 250 m2 of fully equipped BSL Level 2, R&D, Analytical and QC laboratories for development of medical devices and tissue engineering products. 

irisbiosciences provides 3D cell culture products , as well as contract research and manufacturing services in cell based essays and cell based products. 

Products

mimsys® for 3D Cell culture 
mimsys® G is a xeno-free and non-immunogenic hydrogel, easy to handle, for cell encapsulation in 3D experiments in vitro or in vivo. mimsys® G is nutrient permeable and allows long term 3D cell culture, at least 21 days of proliferation and survival. The transparency of mimsys® G hydrogel make it suitable for established laboratorial cell assays, such as cell differentiation, microscopy evaluations, viability protocols and histological procedures. Protocol handbook is available upon request. 

Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells 
High quality and high purity mesenchymal stem cells are obtained from human adipose tissue. These cells can be applied in a broad range of basic and applied research contexts. Tissue processing, cell isolation and cryopreservation are performed under Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), using xeno-free and GMP reagents. Cells have very low levels of manipulation which minimizes genomic instability. Frozen vials are provided with indication of donor age, gender, ethnicity, Body Mass Index (BMI) and anatomical harvesting location. Protocol handbook is available upon request. 

Services

Contract Research 
irisbiosciences provides contract research services on medical device and advanced therapy medicinal products, by encompassing experimental development, in vitro performance assessment and in vivo testing. Our skill set includes strong competence in biomaterials’ development and cell culturing technologies, and extensive knowledge and experience in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. 

irisbiosciences provides: 

  • Biomaterials development and testing; 
  • Cell based assays development and validation; 
  • Cell isolation and cell manipulation protocol development; 
  • Development and testing of cell based products. 

Contract Manufacturing Services : 

irisbiosciences provides a wide range of cGMP services concerning human tissue, cells and related products, including tissue processing, manufacturing of cell-based products, as well as cell manufacturing and banking. 

The facility comprises 250 m2 of qualified controlled environment rooms (CERs), or clean rooms, and material pass-throughs. The CERs are designed to maximize environmental quality, allow the manufacturing of sterile products and are compliant with all the requirements of the European Union Tissue and Cells Directives (EUTCD) and the guidelines for cGMP.To insure the highest levels of quality and regulatory compliance, we have implemented and follow a complete Quality System in conformity with EU-GMP Guide/ICH Q7 and ISO 9001:2008. 

irisbiosciences performs a comprehensive range of analytical testing to ensure product quality and demonstrate the control of viable and non-viable particles, in all irisbiosciences CERs associated with the aseptic preparation process. Quality control tests include LAL test for bacterial endotoxin quantification; mycoplasma detection by conventional PCR, and microbial contaminants detection / Sterility tests. For detection of microbial contaminants, irisbiosciences is equipped with Bact/ALERT Microbial Detection System requirements. 

Our Facilities/Equipment description: 

  • 6 cGMP compliant cleanroom areas; 
  • 3 Grade C/ISO 7 manufacturing rooms fitted with aseptic Isolators with positive pressure; 
  • 1 Grade D/ISO 8 support room and cryostorage room; 
  • 2 HVAC systems for continuity of processing; 
  • Dedicated clean room and facility monitoring system; 
  • Dedicated manufacturing room for cell expansion; 
  • O2 and CO2 controlled incubation.

Women’s Immune System Genes Operate Differently from Men’s
A new technology reveals that immune system genes switch on and off differently in women and men, and the source of that variation is not primarily in the DNA.
DNA Damage Seen in Patients Undergoing CT Scanning
Along with the burgeoning use of advanced medical imaging tests over the past decade have come rising public health concerns about possible links between low-dose radiation and cancer.
Yeast Cells Use Signaling Pathway to Modify Their Genomes
Researchers at the Babraham Institute and Cambridge Systems Biology Centre, University of Cambridge have shown that yeast can modify their genomes to take advantage of an excess of calories in the environment and attain optimal growth.
New Material Forges the Way for 'Stem Cell Factories'
Researchers have discovered the first fully synthetic substrate with potential to grow billions of stem cells. The researchcould forge the way for the creation of 'stem cell factories' - the mass production of human embryonic (pluripotent) stem cells.
New Measurements Reveal Differences Between Stem Cells for Treating Retinal Degeneration
By growing two types of stem cells in a “3-D culture” and measuring their ability to produce retinal cells, a team lead by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital researchers has found one cell type to be better at producing retinal cells.
Researchers Identify Critical Genes Responsible for Brain Tumor Growth
After generating new brain tumor models scientists have identified the role of a family of genes underlying tumor growth in a wide spectrum of high grade brain tumors.
