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.

Integrity Assurance for Single-Use Systems An End-User’s Perspective

 

What should you consider when building an integrity control strategy for your single-use systems (SUS)? How do you overcome application challenges?

 

Join leading industry experts Charlotte Masy of GSK and Patrick Evrard from Pall Corporation to gain insights and answers in this webinar from BioPharma Asia on integrity Assurance for Single-Use Systems, an End-User’s Perspective. They will present several case studies to show how integrity concerns can be practically addressed for cGMP manufacturing applications and the results observed a few years on. 

 

Attendees will learn about:

 

  • The latest regulatory requirements for integrity assurance of SUS
  • The different technologies available to control integrity of SUS
  • Key parameters that affect integrity measurements

 

Register now for this webinar from industry experts on October 6.
