Cygnus Technologies

Full range of products and services for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries


Cygnus Technologies, part of Maravai LifeSciences, is the biopharmaceutical industry’s partner in host cell protein (HCP) and other process-related impurity detection and analytics as well as in innovative viral clearance solutions. Cygnus helps companies developing therapeutic proteins, vaccines, antibodies, plasma derivatives and gene therapies to ensure the safety of biotherapeutics prior to human trials, regulatory approval and commercial release.

Reduction of bioprocess impurities to the lowest levels practical requires sensitive and robust analytical methods. Cygnus offers a full menu of ELISA kits and orthogonal testing services for all current host cell expression systems and purification process leachates, such as Protein A.

Bio-Connect Life Sciences supplies all their products in the Benelux. If you have any questions, please contact the helpdesk.
