DMSO induces drastic changes in human cellular processes and epigenetic landscape in vitro

Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is an organic solvent that is widely used as cryoprotectant for freezing cells and tissues. Clinically, DMSO is considered a potent anti-inflammatory, nerve blocker (analgesic), diuretic, vasodilator and muscle relaxer. In cells, DMSO is used to induce differentiation, as a free radical scavenger, and most notably, to prevent ice formation during cryopreservation.

From sterile filling to custom manufacturing: How Akron’s unique services and capabilities can work for you

Akron’s sterile manufacturing facility, presented here before, enables the unique preparation of products within a fully aseptic manufacturing environment, including sterile filtration and container-closure filling. And while this allows Akron to manufacture cGMP-compliant, sterile-filled cytokines and ancillary materials for cell therapy, Akron also extends these capabilities as services to serve the industry: Owing to our unique facilities, our manufacturing capabilities are among

The cytokine supplier difference: Sterile fill/finish

The supply of critical raw materials for cell therapy manufacturing must fulfill the need for cost-effective, safe and functional products that provide reliable and reproducible performance. In case of cytokines, these products are proteins that must fulfill the need for stability, functionality and be contamination-free. Within stability and functionality, considerations of three-dimensional structure and affect
