OriGen Biomedical is a global leader in cell culture and cryopreservation products. We strive to have excellent customer service and consistently provide high-quality products. Our industry-preferred cryopreservation bags and unsurpassed quality cell culture bags have been the Gold Standard for years. Institutional processes, protocols, and operational needs can differ substantially from one organization to the next. To alleviate this, OriGen prioritizes the capability to adapt products to better fit your organization’s needs, not force you to adapt to match OriGen’s existing products. This is done through Custom Product Development.

Possible Outcomes of Custom Product Development
OriGen Designs and Develops New Products
A product that meets your specific processes and protocols will be made for your organization. The product may require new tooling or regulatory approvals and will incur development expenses that will be included in the final cost. All custom development products have a minimum order quantity. The minimum order quantity and any development costs will be specified in the proposal prepared by OriGen.
OriGen Existing Products May Be Suggested
Often, an existing OriGen product or combination of products can be used to achieve your desired outcome. Existing products are generally more affordable and can be provided with a shorter lead time than developing a product. If suitable, OriGen may recommend a product that will work well for your organization.
No Product Is Developed
OriGen performs a multi-functional evaluation of each project request to ensure the resulting product is feasible and would meet quality standards and expectations. The project evaluation may suggest that OriGen is not the best company to manufacture a product for your organization. In this case, OriGen may recommend an alternate manufacturer.
Custom Product Development Phases
1. Client Concept
An unmet need or pain point in your organization’s cell therapy and/or cryopreservation process is discovered and brought to OriGen.
2. Design Inputs
We will work with you to create a list of design inputs to drive the product design. Regulatory requirements will also be established which can add significant time and cost to a project.
3. Project Evaluation
OriGen will evaluate the feasibility of the project request and notify you of the decision to proceed with the project. Please note that due to the nature of custom development requests, OriGen may not be able to proceed with all projects.
If the project fits within our capabilities, and we feel confident we can meet your needs and expectations, OriGen will provide a proposal that includes a concept drawing, pricing, and lead time.
5. Samples and Design Modifications
OriGen can provide you with sample products for a customer-approved proposal. After reviewing the proposal and the samples, we will incorporate your feedback by making necessary design modifications.
6. Finalize Development
When the design is agreed upon by you and our development team, OriGen will finalize the product details. Please note that the design may not be changed after samples are approved. Late-stage design changes will incur a change fee.
7. Manufacture Product
OriGen will then manufacture and send the product. You can typically expect to receive products within 17 – 24 weeks from the receipt of a Purchase Order. Please note that new tooling, regulatory submissions/approvals, and/or validations will significantly impact lead times.
