Gene Therapy upstream processing: adherent vs suspension cost modelling and perspectives
There is huge pressure on biomanufacturing facilities due to high demand for gene therapy products such as recombinant adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors made under current good manufacturing practice (GMP) conditions. The constraints of the scale-up process are rarely taken into consideration during clinical process development, with many facilities simply scaling-out adherent cell stack protocols, procedures, and test methods. In order to demonstrate the importance of cost economics linked to the choice of scale-up processes, this study provides a detailed cost modeling analysis comparing viral vector production in adherent cells in cell stacks to viral vectors produced in bioreactors, either in suspension using a stirred bioreactor or adherently in iCELLis® fixed-bed bioreactor.

Choose Your Culture System for Viral Vector Production with Confidence!
Listen to our Podcast Today and Learn the Advantages, Challenges and Cost Considerations for Adherent and Suspension Cell Cultures.
In 2019 Swissfillon were inspected and approved by the FDA to supply drug products into the USA, following on from EU approval in 2018. This young fill finish CMO was started in Switzerland in 2013 and built a state-of-the-art cGMP production facility from the ground up.
Swissfillon recognized early on that single-use systems met their requirements for multi-product manufacturing and would help their clients get their drugs to market faster.
During this case-study webinar, participants will learn:
- How working in partnership with a supplier can be part of a QbD approach to minimize risk
- Strategies & design improvements for single-use systems to reduce risk in the process
- How a shadowboard can be used to make single-use system leak tests, PUPSIT and the filtration process fast, safe and simple
