The proof is in the service

We serve both internal and external customers. See what they appreciate about collaborating with the Customized Applications Services team.

Whether adjustments to a standard protocol, bookmarking a standard process with new input/output steps, or creating a completely new process, we use scrum to stay flexible and we work very closely with our customers at every stage.
Julia Kirchhof
Prodigy Customized Applications Product Owner, Miltenyi Biotec
Having subject matter experts at hand with exceptional proficiency allows the Customized Applications Services team to produce an outstanding process that enables a cell therapy product to exist which was previously not feasible.
Aimee-Jayne Tyler
Clinical Sales Representative UK, Miltenyi Biotec
A highlight is their guidance to clients. The Customized Applications Services team provides carefully composed and detailed documentation of planning and execution steps using recurring and easy-to-follow templates. This had a very positive effect on communication efficiency with the client.

How it works

From manual process to RUO Customized Application

Our Customized Applications Services team manages every step of translating a manual manufacturing process into a fully automated workflow on the CliniMACS Prodigy. First, we develop an RUO process development Customized Application that maintains flexibility and optimization options to find ideal process settings. 

1. Interview

  • We work with you to define the design and functional specifications based on your manual process.

2. Develop Customized Application

  • We translate the defined specifications into a Customized Application.

3. Deploy & train

  • We install the Customized Application onsite and train users.

4. Evaluate process

  • You evaluate performance of the Customized Application and then optimize it with Miltenyi experts.

From RUO Customized Application to GMP-supportive Customized Application

In a second-tier project, the RUO process development Customized Application can be transferred to a verified GMP-supportive Customized Application, including installation, operational qualification and phase-appropriate documentation. The GMP-supportive Customized Application can be integrated into clinical manufacturing processes after customer validation.

1. Freeze Design

  • We work with you to define the design input for the GMP-supportive Customized Application.

2. Optimize program

  • We configure the Customized Application according to the defined design input.

3. Verify

  • We perform a functional verification.

4. Install & Operational Qualification

  • We perform with you an Installation and Operational Qualification of the GMP-supportive Customized Application onsite, which you then validate.

CliniMACS Prodigy. Expect quality and nothing less. 

International quality standards (ISO) exist to guarantee consistency and reproducibility. We are certified and regularly audited to these standards as a commitment to our customers so that your custom product is delivered the same way every time.
