Leveraging on its recent investments Senrise-IV and Senefill, Novasep launches a unique
2-year turnkey plant offer to accelerate commercial production of viral vectors.
LYON, France, Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Novasep, a leading supplier of services and technologies for the life sciences industry, presents oXYgene™, a new offer for construction and operation of customer dedicated facilities for viral vectors production.
Novasep recently announced the successful start-up of Senrise-IV, its flagship for bioproduction of viral vectors at large scale. Novasep now offers to capitalize on its unique engineering and CDMO expertises to shorten the time-to-market of its customers late-stage viral vector drug candidates. Novasep's modular bioproduction unit is composed of two cGMP production lines, dedicated to either adherence cell culture for low volume production or suspension cell culture with bioreactors of 50 to 2000 liters for larger volume production.
The oXYgene™ solution goes much further beyond the supply of a turn-key production suite. For oXYgene™ leverages Novasep's platform facility design solution to accelerate all project phases: procurement, commissioning & qualification, validation and training. Indeed, oXYgene™ consists of building and staffing the plant and performing cGMP viral vectors production for Novasep customers. In the meantime, Novasep has built expansive Fill & Finish capabilities with its new unit Senefill, which will be fully operational by end 2019, to supply oXYgene™ customers from production to release of their viral vector drug products at commercial scale, on the same site.
