Xtalks Life Science Webinars

This webinar will appeal to senior-level executives working at pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies that need a reliable pDNA supply chain.

Plasmid DNA (pDNA) plays a critical role in the delivery of gene therapies into targeted cells. The development and delivery of large quantity, high-quality pDNA vectors are in high demand.

Cytovance Biologics has developed and integrated Single-use Platform for manufacturing plasmid DNA (pDNA) using the HyperGRO™ high cell density process that is licensed from Nature Technologies, an industry leader in the field. The fermentation process reduces the risk of recombination events that are common with pDNA containing inverted repeats, such as those associated with lentiviral vectors. The fermentation is performed in single use fermenters. The platform purification employs off-the-shelf disposable technologies that ensure a low shear process.

Join featured speakers from Cytovance in a live webinar on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 at 12pm EST (5pm GMT/UK) to hear how:

  • Cytovance expands its cGMP microbial services to include pDNA
  • Cytovance relies on strong regulatory support and QA systems to develop a Critical Reagent Grade™ offering that is suitable as a raw material in any cGMP process
  • Integrated single-use systems combine to provide high-quality pDNA

Featured speakers include:

  • Jesse McCool, PhD, Chief Technology Officer
  • Frank Agbogbo, PhD, Director, Microbial Bioprocess
  • David Schmidt, Director, Analytical Development

This webinar will appeal to senior-level executives working at pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies that need a reliable pDNA supply chain. Specific job titles include:

  • Research scientist
  • CSO
  • Head of R&D
  • Laboratory technician
  • Laboratory supply chain manager
