Af­ter net­ting $200M, Syn­thego to break ground on its man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ty

Cal­i­for­nia-based biotech Syn­thego has been main­ly fo­cused on de­vel­op­ing CRISPR-based tools to help re­searchers in acad­e­mia and biotech, but its lat­est move now is turn­ing its at­ten­tion more to­wards man­u­fac­tur­ing.

The com­pa­ny has bro­ken ground on a 20,000-square-foot man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ty in the San Fran­cis­co Bay Area, ex­pand­ing its GMP ca­pac­i­ty by 30 times, Syn­thego said in an email to End­points News. The fa­cil­i­ty is al­so go­ing to man­u­fac­ture ma­te­ri­als for trans­la­tion­al and clin­i­cal re­search de­vel­op­ment for cell and gene ther­a­pies as well.
