Catal­ent in­tro­duces new AAV gene ther­a­py tech in aim to speed up man­u­fac­tur­ing process

As Catal­ent ven­tures fur­ther in­to the world of cell and gene ther­a­py man­u­fac­tur­ing, the New Jer­sey-based CD­MO has re­vealed its new ade­no-as­so­ci­at­ed vi­ral vec­tor plat­form.

The Up­Tem­po Vir­tu­oso plat­form can stream­line the AAV man­u­fac­tur­ing process to cut back on the time it takes to go from clin­ic to in-hu­man clin­i­cal tri­als. It in­cludes pro­to­cols for cell cul­ture, trans­fec­tion, and down­stream pu­rifi­ca­tion, and can sim­pli­fy the crit­i­cal sup­ply chain. It’s de­signed to pro­duce prod­ucts for the clin­ic in just nine months, Catal­ent says, and cus­tomers will have ac­cess to Catal­ent’s plas­mid DNA of­fer­ings, too.
