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.

Hailed as the “next frontier” in cell therapy and regenerative medicine, exosomes are a type of extracellular vesicle and play a key role in the regulation of the intercellular communication processes.
David Haylock of VivaZome will present on upstream production of angiogenic exosomes using the iCELLis® nano fixed bed bioreactor. This will be followed by a presentation by Roberto Ciboldi of Pall Corporation on a platform solution including cell culture, purification and sterile filtration of exosomes.
Participants will be able to:
- Compare the performance of the iCELLis Nano bioreactor to traditional flasks for exosome production from adherent cell culture
- Understand how an integrated end to end platform delivers highly purified and consistently-sized exosomes
- Discover an innovative cGMP scalable manufacturing platform for exosomes
