Don't miss our presentation on Cell and gene development and manufacturing

Our Sr. Director of Cell and Gene Process Development, Patricia Bettinger, presents on strategies for building a development and manufacturing strategy for advanced therapy products.

Her talk "From Blueprint to Breakthrough: Showcasing Scientific End-to-End Cell and Gene CDMO Services" takes place October 13th, 12:05-12:35 pm at presentation stage D

In this talk she will feature background and information on our new cell and gene campus in Longmont Colorado, which completed its viral vector and cell therapy upgrades this year, and is fully operational for pre-clinical through commercial support for cell and gene developers.  

Be sure to join the seminar on Dual-use Drug Manufacturing 

Our CTO & EVP of Operations for Europe and Japan Regions, Kasper Møller, will be presenting as part of the seminar panel presentation: "Reality of Dual-Use Drug Manufacturing: Challenges and Responses of the Operational System" on October 13 at 15:00-16:30 in room G301. We hope you'll join us for this exciting discussion!

Microbial Bioprocessing Systems

We have produced 100+ products using microbial expressed proteins and multiple modes of expression - including secretion (yeast), periplasmic secretion, soluble intracellular expression, and inclusion bodies, also from initial development through full-scale.  commercialization. Our expertise includes experience with E. coli, Pichia, Pseudomonas Fluorescens, Bacillus microbial expression systems, and more.

We use standard industry systems, including batch and fed-batch methods, to produce microbial drug products, and offer cell banking services that meet the standards of regulatory agencies worldwide, and flexible manufacturing scales to support any stage of your product lifecycle.
