Discuss the development and challenges of a highly scalable adeno-associated virus (AAV) manufacturing platform

Event Overview:

Recombinantly produced adeno-associated viruses (AAV) are the predominant viral vectors used for in vivo gene therapies owing to their relatively good safety, long term transgene expression, ability to infect a broad range of cells and ease in achieving high titers at small-scale. One of the main challenges in bringing AAV-based therapies to patients, is the ability to efficiently translate bench-scale processes to commercial
GMP manufacturing while meeting the high dosage requirements. In this context, Polyplus, Exothera and Alexion collaborated for the development of a highly scalable AAV manufacturing platform with a capacity ranging from 1L to 200L and 2000L.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Developing scalable transfection process with DOE (Design of Experiments)
  • Scaling-up while maintaining consistent transfection complex growth for efficient delivery to cells

Who Should Attend:

  • Viral vector manufacturers
  • Viral vector sponsors
  • Pharma
  • Biotech
