Master Seed/Cell Production


The Benchmark Master Seed and Cell Production team works closely with Regulatory, Quality Assurance and Quality Control departments to ensure that the client receives the highest quality seeds and cells along with complete documentation to meet project plans and compliance standards.

Benchmark prepares seeds and cells according to established Standard Operating Procedures approved by the client and audited by Benchmark Quality Assurance personnel to assure compliance with the Code of the Federal Regulations.

Benchmark has also assisted clients in producing and approving Master Seeds and Cells for some very novel technologies including:

  • Parasites
  • Plant Cells
  • Vectors
  • Recombinants
    • Cells
    • Viruses
    • Bacteria

Benchmark Master Seed and Cell facilities are BioSafety Level 2 rated. Separate HEPA-filtered isolation rooms for seeds and cells provide containment and reduce the risk of exposure to extraneous agents. Benchmark has an Institutional Biosafety Committee to assure safe handling of organisms and compliance with a Technology Control Plan.
