Centralized hub for advanced testing of nucleic acids to simplify mRNA drug substance testing, accelerating critical therapeutic development
SAN DIEGO –TriLink BioTechnologies (TriLink), a Maravai LifeSciences company (NASDAQ: MRVI) and global provider of life science reagents and services, has launched its Analytical Sciences Center of Excellence (ASCE) hub. Expanding its comprehensive suite of analytical testing capabilities, this new center of excellence will minimize the delays and unexpected costs typically associated with outsourced testing to multiple laboratories. This new center of excellence will serve as the hub for all analytical innovation and the Quality Control laboratories across the organization’s manufacturing network.
Located within Maravai LifeSciences’s Pacific Center Boulevard facility in San Diego’s Sorrento Valley, the ASCE will operate out of a 4,000-square- lab equipped with advanced instrumentation and support developers ss they advance their drugs – starting with plasmid DNA and continuing through mRNA manufacturing and release.
“TriLink’s new Analytical Sciences Center of Excellence will be a transformative force in the development of nucleic acid therapies,” shared Khaled Yamout, Senior Director of Analytical Services at TriLink. “This new lab will allow us to expand our analytical capabilities to meet the growing demands of the market, including specific method development.”
Leaning on decades of technical expertise, TriLink continues to lead the market with mRNA specific analytical services, having developed and qualified 10 types of unique methods for the characterization of mRNA covering 40 various constructs. With this expansion, the center of excellence builds upon the organization’s comprehensive method development for construct-specific assays with new instrumentation to improve NMR, NGS, and LNP characterization. The center of excellence will also be responsible for developing cutting-edge analytical methodologies, including mRNA fingerprinting and sequencing.
“We continue to witness exciting growth in nucleic acid therapeutics – and rapid expansion calls for rapid innovation,” added Kevin Lynch, TriLink’s VP and GM of GMP Operations. “The ASCE’s centralized analytical capabilities and development of analytical methodologies for the characterization of nucleic acids will advance the industry as we continue to find ways to meet the needs of developers working on life-saving therapeutics.”
In addition to the ASCE’s suite of analytical services, TriLink® has a robust ® mRNA capping portfolio, advanced scale-up capabilities, and unrivaled expertise in mRNA, oligonucleotide, and plasmid production. Leveraging more than 25 years of experience, TriLink® serves companies dedicated to advancing therapeutics, vaccines, and diagnostics by delivering exceptional Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) services.
