Short and long-term impacts of AAV process optimization on your gene therapy pipeline

Live30 webinars are thirty-minute presentations designed to update you on the latest innovations, applications, and data in a fast yet interactive format.

High yield, high quality, and high-efficiency AAV production is essential for advancing gene therapy. Producing enough viral particles in a cost-effective way for medium to high dose indications, and moderate to large prevalence diseases poses significant challenges.

To meet demand, manufacturers often scale out and scale-up, investing in facilities, equipment, and personnel. Upstream process optimization offers a key solution to increase overall yields and alleviate capacity constraints while removing economic barriers as processes move from the clinic to commercialization.

This webinar will explore the applying an economic model to quantify the impact of upstream process optimization with varying transfection technologies using real-world case studies. We will evaluate fold improvements in AAV titer, percent full capsids, batch cost, and cost-per dose comparisons.

Considerations for changing processes supporting early clinical AAV assets will be discussed from economic and practical viewpoints. Further, long range economic modelling will demonstrate the impact of decisions made during process development on commercial manufacturing. Lastly, webinar participants will have the opportunity to witness simulations in real-time with a new AAV manufacturing cost calculator.

Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • A case study which demonstrates how to reduce cost per dose and overall cost of investment by optimizing upstream AAV processes for AAV titer and percent full capsids
  • How a CMDO is able to reduce their cost per dose using AAV transfection systems
  • Utilizing an AAV manufacturing cost calculator to customize results for process developments
