ADCF & Serum-free Policy

ADCF Policy


We follow a strict animal-derived component-free (ADCF) policy to ensure maximum safety of our preclinical and GMP cytokines. As a result no animal or human-derived components are part of any of our cytokine products.

ADCF Level 1 – No ADC in product, but ADC in production process

The final product contains neither animal-nor human-derived materials.

ADCF Level 2 – No ADC in product and production process

The final product contains neither animal-nor human-derived materials. ADCF Level 2 cytokines are produced in our dedicated animal-free facility. No animal-derived components are used throughout the complete production process. All ADCF Level 2 cytokines are produced in E. coli.

Serum-free Policy


Each medium is free from human or animal serum. The media are optimized for the serum-free culture and maintenance of selected cell types.

If human, but no animal-derived materials are part of the media formulation, the product is designated “xeno-free”.

General Standards for all Products are

Animal-derived components are only accepted in production if they are safe and compliant with TSE guidelines and represent no health hazard. Typically, they are pharmaceutical grade. All materials used in production are formally approved by QM. Their origin and impurity profile are assessed, and only raw materials procured from reliable manufacturers and suppliers are used.

  • consistent quality and safety due to state-of-the-art production, stringent quality control and thorough documentation
  • reliable high-performance due to our own extensive cell processing know-how
  • optimal regulatory compliance based on continuous communication with major regulatory authorities and customers
