Clinical Biotechnology Centre

We have been manufacturing GMP-grade DNA plasmids for over 20 years and we now offer viral vectors (lentiviral and adeno-associated viral).

We are proud to have supported numerous clinical trials, treating patients around the world with a broad range of infectious, malignant or inherited disorders.

With a wealth of expertise and experience, we manufacture plasmids for a variety of research, pre-clinical and clinical campaigns, for healthcare, academic and commercial customers.

We have the experience to de-risk your project plans, and the know-how to overcome the challenges of transferring manufacturing processes to GMP compliance for the first time.
