OrganaBio Expands CPC Services Hub in Irvine

  • OrganaBio has expanded its Cell Processing and Cryopreservation Services hub in Irvine, California, to support clinical trial services for a large-cap pharmaceutical company.
  • The expansion facilitates the company’s ability to service multiple clinical trial cities in the region, leveraging a unified electronic Quality Management System.

OrganaBio has expanded its flagship Cell Processing and Cryopreservation (CPC) Services hub in Irvine, California. This move aims to support clinical trial services for a large-cap pharmaceutical company. The expansion comes a year after the Irvine lab’s opening and just months following the October launch of OrganaBio’s CPC Services division.

The Irvine facility now services seven major clinical trial cities in the region. It offers services such as peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) isolation and cryopreservation, along with storage, logistics, and batch shipping on request.

As the pharmaceutical partner sought to add a new site in the region for an existing clinical trial, CPC Services quickly replicated activities performed at its Miami-based location. This rapid expansion was made possible by OrganaBio’s electronic Quality Management System, which ensures unified training, tech transfer, and standard operating procedures (SOPs), as well as equipment and operator qualifications.

“Through CPC Services, we’ve developed a quick and flexible approach to bicoastal trial expansion,” said Priya Baraniak, Ph.D., Chief Business Officer of OrganaBio. “In the last two years, working with two multinational large-cap pharmaceutical companies, as well as other trial sponsors, we have developed an unparalleled reputation for quality. This includes a 99.9% success rate handling 2,000 samples, processing them in half the time required and leading the industry with 99.1% PBMC viability.”

The expanded CPC Services are already operational at the Irvine facility, supporting trials at sites in Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson, San Jose, San Francisco, and more. Besides the Miami and Irvine sites, CPC Services will soon expand to locations in Chicago, Nashville, Ann Arbor, and Atlanta, enabling high-quality and fast trial support across the U.S.
