Critical raw material for mRNA synthesis

TheraPure-grade reagents for mRNA therapeutics contain highest level of purity and are manufactured using high-definition analytics and tightly controlled purity standards. Our TheraPure-grade portfolio (Table 1) offers a unique integrated solution for mRNA synthesis, optimized to meet fit-for-purpose standards:

  • Animal origin-free (AOF) and ampicillin-free (AF) components throughout the manufacturing process (e.g., from fermentation to enzyme formulation)
  • Greater than 99% triphosphate for NTPs and modified nucleotides as determined by HPLC
  • Tested for critical impurities, e.g., endotoxin, bioburden, residual metals, host cell DNA, RNase and DNase activities
