Pall Integrated Solutions for Gene Therapy
Pall have technologies that enable production of viral vectors on a production scale in a relatively small footprint. The statement holds true for both AAV and lent virus. The talk will cover both upstream and downstream technologies starting with seed train all the way through to the final formulation and filling step. With regards to bioreactors we will cover both adherent cell and suspension cell capabilities and projected future movements in the field. We will touch on process development services (PDS) where Pall are able to bring all of their expertise in continuous intensified process development to shorten the path to market for gene therapies.
