BOULDER, Colo.–InDevR, Inc., an innovative life science company dedicated to improving biopharmaceutical and vaccine manufacturing, is pleased to announce an exclusive sales, marketing and customer support relationship with I&L Biosystems GmbH and its subsidiaries. The distribution agreement includes sales and support for the Cypher One™ and soon to launch VaxArray™ product lines throughout Western Europe.
InDevR manufactures and sells Cypher One™, an automated hemagglutination analyzer used by biopharmaceutical vaccine manufacturers and veterinary diagnostic labs. The Cypher One™ system automates and standardizes HA and HAI analysis and provides a digital, traceable record to enhance data quality and reliability. InDevR is also developing a comprehensive vaccine potency platform called VaxArray™. When fully launched, the VaxArray™ platform will measure both hemagglutinin and neuraminidase content of both seasonal and pandemic influenza. VaxArray™ will enable biopharmaceutical manufacturers the ability to generate consistent potency data throughout upstream and downstream testing and enhance process recovery applications. InDevR’s products support vaccine developers and manufactures by providing faster turnaround times and improved results at an affordable price.

The new 3.1 software version provides users with many enhanced features that build upon the usefulness of the existing platform. Next generation software includes an improved interface with a new startup screen and other features making the system more user friendly. Increased plate flexibility has also been integrated giving the user the ability to toggle between horizontal and vertical sample use orientations as well as additional exported analytical data to enable tracking and trending of quality control metrics. Finally, with data integrity needs on the rise, the entire system enables compliance with 21CFR Part 11 and Annex 11 guidance.
Overall the Cypher One™ system simplifies analysis of HA and HAI assays, provides enhanced data integrity and reduces risk by providing interpretation consistency and standardization to minimize human errors. The Cypher One™ is used by leaders in the field of human and veterinary flu vaccine manufacturing, contract research organizations, academic institutions, veterinary diagnostic labs, and government entities.
The launch of the next generation 3.1 software expands the benefits of the Cypher One™ instrument and provides an opportunity to continue standardization and data record creation of hemagglutination analysis in serology and virology testing,” says Dawn Bitz, Chief Commercial Officer at InDevR. “With this launch, we continue our dedication to improving influenza vaccine manufacturing by developing innovative, analytical tools that provide superior results.”
Hemagglutination assays are widely used in serology and virology, with applications ranging from blood typing to vaccine efficacy. Currently, hemagglutination assays rely on subjective, manual interpretation, which can lead to significant variations in the measurement between technicians and laboratories. There are a number of industrial and government groups calling for improved standardization in vaccine characterization, e.g., Global Health Network’s CONSISE (https://consise.tghn.org/). In response to these initiatives, InDevR developed an optical analyzer with proprietary software to automate and standardize results interpretation.
Development of the Cypher One system was funded in part by a National Institutes of Health 2-year Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research grant sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (R43 AI106054).
