Biotechnology Solutions


As you innovate your next product, look to our diverse product portfolio and expertise to craft custom solutions.

Fermenting change

The obstacles to success in the biotechnology business are high. Kerry is the collaborator you need to clear the path.

Six of the world’s top 10 blockbuster biotech drugs, and around a quarter of all biotech drugs on the market, use Kerry’s Sheffield brand components in their media.

We are the only manufacturer of both peptones and yeast extracts. We collaborate with our customers from the initial feasibility studies through to the final testing and implementation stage.

In addition, our global network of laboratories and regulatory compliance experts enable us to meet pharma requirements globally.

Cell culture

The Biotech market relies on Kerry for cell culture optimisation supplements and media that accelerate bioprocess development and increase bio-manufacturing efficiency. Every day we expand our capabilities to provide the industry with innovative and complementary solutions that help customers increase cell proliferation, extend cell viability and increase target protein production.

Pharma fermentation

Kerry has a long history of being the number one global supplier of nitrogen sources into medium for microbial expression of recombinant proteins. We are the only media ingredients supplier worldwide that manufactures both peptones and yeast extracts giving us the unique opportunity to supply nitrogen source solutions optimised for maximum expression of recombinant product in specific expression systems.

Vaccines

Kerry offers product solutions that can be applied in nearly all stages of vaccine development and manufacturing.

  • Enhancement of cell growth and antigen generation in microbial systems (E. coli, S. cerevisiae, Clostridium, Pichia, etc.)
  • Enhancement of cell growth and antigen generation in viral systems (BHK, MDCK, MRC-5, VERO, CEF, etc.) 
  • Reduction or elimination of serum or other animal-derived components 
  • Vaccine formulation (stabilisers, adjuvants, diluents)

Diagnostics

Kerry started producing casein hydrolysates for use in laboratory media in 1940. Since then, many of our high quality peptones have been used in clinical diagnostics and quality control media formulations. Our application lab enables us to specifically select and optimise peptones, yeast extracts and combinations for specific media applications (general purpose, chromogenic and blood agar media) and allows us to optimise new products before we start commercialising them.

Classical Fermentation

Today, Kerry is the only media ingredients supplier worldwide that manufactures both peptones and yeast extracts. Kerry has specifically developed technical grades of yeast extracts and peptones to meet the nutritional needs of many organisms in a broad range of fermentation applications that have special requirements such as: kosher, food grade, non allergenic, Non GMO (IPS).
