Consider automation early in the rollout of clinical translation and scale up of clinical-trial protocols.

As anticipation builds about accelerated clinical adoption of advanced cell therapies, more attention is turning to the underlying manufacturing strategies that will allow these therapies to benefit patients worldwide. While cell therapies hold great promise clinically, high manufacturing costs relative to reimbursement present a formidable roadblock to commercialization. Therefore, the need for cost effectiveness, process efficiency, and product consistency is driving efforts for automation in numerous cell therapy fields and particularly for T-cell immunotherapies.
