Assay-Ready Cell Service 

Our assay-ready cell service offers customizable solutions tailored to your research needs, with vial sizes ranging from 250 µl to 5 ml and cell numbers from 2 million to 50 million cells per milliliter. We conduct functional tests to assess cell viability, growth, and response to stimuli, ensuring assay suitability, and perform rigorous contamination checks and authentication to verify cell identity for experimental reliability.

Our service offers researchers unparalleled efficiency and consistency by providing high-quality, ready-to-use mammalian cell lines that perform immediately post-thaw, streamlining experimental preparation and ensuring reproducible results.

Advantages of Our Assay-Ready Cell Manufacturing Service

1. Time and Resource Efficiency

Our services streamline experimental preparation by eliminating extensive maintenance, subculturing, and growth optimization for our clients. This allows researchers to focus on value-adding activities and accelerates the experimental process.

2. Consistency and Reduced Variability

Cytion's assay-ready cell service ensures a consistent and reproducible experimental setup. This standardization reduces experimental variability and facilitates accurate comparisons across studies and laboratories.

3. Standardized Volumes and Concentrations

Our assay-ready cells, banked at standardized volumes and concentrations, ensure the integrity of your experiments and enhance reproducibility.

Customization and Characterization

We offer customization and characterization options for your high-quality assay-ready cells, including:

  • Vial Sizes: Volumes range from 250 µl to 5 ml, depending on experimental needs.
  • Cell Numbers: Customizable from 0.1 million to 50 million cells per milliliter.
  • Functional Tests: Assess cell viability, growth, and response to stimuli to confirm their suitability for assays.
  • Contamination Checks: Rigorous testing to ensure cells are free from species-specific pathogens.
  • Authentication: Verification of cell identity and genetic stability to ensure experimental reliability.
  • Shipping: Temperature-monitored dry shippers capable of holding up to 500 vials, ensuring the safe and controlled delivery of your assay-ready cells.

From Concept to Cell: Custom Assay-Ready Solutions

Process for Getting Your Personalized Assay-Ready Cells

1. Consultation: We understand your research needs through a detailed consultation.

2. Integration: Transfer your cells to us or choose from our high-quality, genetically authentic cell lines.

3. Production: We produce cryopreserved, assay-ready cells, ensuring consistent and reliable results.

4. Transfer: We deliver the cells to you in a temperature-monitored dry shipper, capable of holding up to 500 vials per shipment.
The vials are transported in cryoboxes, not straws, ensuring the labels and contents remain undamaged.

Applications in Bioassays and Drug Discovery


Bioassays for Biologics Quality Control

Quality control of therapeutic proteins, antibodies, and vaccines requires robust, precise bioassays. Our assay-ready cells maintain consistent performance across different testing sites, improving inter-laboratory precision and facilitating long-term bioassay support.


Drug Discovery and High-Throughput Screening (HTS)

For cell-based HTS, large quantities of consistent cells are essential to avoid costly delays. Our assay-ready cells, tested to meet assay specifications, enable the timely separation of cell preparation from screening, enhancing the efficiency of drug discovery campaigns. Custom cell banks from recombinant or non-recombinant lines expressing targets of interest are available to support various research projects.

Service Details


1. Automated Filling Device: Cytion utilizes the Fill-It automated filling device (Sartorius Stedim Biotech) to produce large quantities of cryovials in an assay-ready format. This technology ensures precision and consistency that surpasses manual production.

2. Controlled-Rate Freezing: Optimal cryopreservation is achieved using the CryoMed™ controlled-rate freezer (Thermo Fisher Scientific). The controlled-rate freezing ensures a cooling rate of 1°C per minute for the cell suspension, maintaining cell integrity and functionality.

3. Cell Culture Vessels Supporting Large-Scale Expansion: We employ a variety of cell culture flasks to support large-scale cell expansion, including CellSTACKs®, CellFactory™ devices (Nunc™), and CELLdisc™ (Greiner Bio-One).

4. Long-Term Storage: Assay-ready cells are stored in temperature-monitored tanks in the vapor phase of liquid nitrogen, guaranteeing high-quality cells for many years, ready for immediate use post-thaw.
