Host Cell Residual DNA Detection Kits facilitate Biologics R&D and Manufacturing
Host cell residual DNA is a process-related impurity involved in the production of biologics, which not only reduces the effectiveness of biologics, but also may pose safety concerns such as infectiousness or tumorigenicity. Therefore, regulatory agencies in various countries have set limits on the amount of residual DNA in biologics.

The current guidelines of WHO and US FDA recommend that residual DNA in finished products should not be higher than 10 ng/dose, and US FDA also points out that residual DNA in host cells of biological products should not be higher than 100 pg/dose. The General Principles of the European Pharmacopoeia stipulate that the limit of residual DNA in biological products should not be higher than 10 ng/dose, but the residual DNA limit for individual vaccines is more stringent, e.g., the residual DNA in the inactivated vaccine against hepatitis A should not be higher than 100 pg/dose, and that in the vaccine against hepatitis B should not be higher than 10 pg/dose. The 2020 edition of the Chinese Pharmacopoeia, Part III, stipulates that the DNA residue in biological preparations produced on a cellular matrix should not exceed 100 pg/dose, and the DNA residue in vaccines produced on a bacterial or fungal matrix should not exceed 10 ng/dose.

In addition, for the methods of exogenous DNA residue determination, national pharmacopoeias also give guidance recommendations. The U.S. Pharmacopoeia 2017 edition of USP40-NF35 General Provision 1130 describes three methods for the determination of exogenous DNA residues, which are DNA probe hybridization, threshold method and real-time quantitative PCR method. The European Pharmacopoeia proposes real-time quantitative PCR and immunoenzymatic method, two sensitive analytical methods for quantifying host cell residual DNA. The Chinese Pharmacopoeia 2020 edition of the three general rules 3407 also stipulates that the host cell DNA residue detection methods are DNA probe hybridization, fluorescence staining and quantitative PCR.

Among them, qPCR method has very high sensitivity, sequence specificity and accuracy, which can provide a reliable detection means for the biopharmaceutical industry in process research and quality control of finished products, and has now become the preferred detection method for each biological product manufacturer.

Yeasen Biotechnology has independently developed 4 qPCR kits for CHO&HEK293&Vero&E.coli, which can rapidly and efficiently detect host DNA residues in biopharmaceuticals.
