Viral vector manufacturing process - addressing bottlenecks with innovative solutions

Tuesday 08:00 PST / 11:00 EST / 16:00 GMT / 17:00 CET
Viral vector manufacturing process - addressing bottlenecks with innovative solutions

In this webinar, we will share multiple applications and technologies that can address current manufacturing challenges and solutions to increase overall viral vector yield in various stages throughout the development and manufacturing processes. We will begin with strategies for intensifying plasmid DNA production, to secure the demand and quality of the raw material for AAV production. We will also discuss strategies to overcome the pain points associated with AAV and lentivirus production and purification at various manufacturing scales. 

Case studies will be presented to demonstrate the progress associated with process intensification and optimization from bench top development to large-scale commercial manufacturing. Finally, we will explore enhancing viral vector overall process yield by integrating the advanced technology solutions for both upstream suspension cell culture (perfusion mode) and downstream (UF/DF, chromatography) processing. With the goal of continuous process improvement, we hope to provide solutions that may help address your manufacturing or scale-up bottlenecks.

Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • Integration of in-process control analytics for bacterial growth optimization and plasmid DNA concertation and purity
  • TFDF perfusion platform enabling AAV production yield and simplification of AAV lysate clarification
  • Intensification of lentivirus production yield through continuous and/or multiple harvest clarificationIntensifying AAV large scale recovery purification yield using a single-use ARTeSYN chromatography technology
