Another key theme was the growth of the North American gas and LNG industry, a topic that will be a focus for Gastech 2019, which will be co-located again with GPEX
at the NRG Centre, Houston, from September 17 to 19.
President of Catalent Biologics, Barry Littlejohns, said his company's proprietary GPEx
technology enabled high- speed creation of mammalian cells lines, ensuring drug development projects were brought to clinic more rapidly than was otherwise possible.
technology is helping QLogic provide highly integrated PCI Express products that deliver outstanding reliability and performance."
Day Two of the inaugural GPEX
focused on themes including financing the future of the energy transition and new business models.
platform creates stable, high-yielding mammalian cell lines with advantages that span early feasibility studies, to clinical manufacturing, through to commercial scale production.
Technologies such as the GPEx
cell line engineering offer faster access to reliable and productive cell lines.
Employing Redwood's SMARTag ADC platform combined with Catalent's GPEx
cell line expression system, the companies recently completed a biomanufacturing Center of Excellence in Madison, WI, offering a range of analytical and fill-finish services.
"We are very excited to help accelerate the development of a unique regenerative therapy using our GPEx
technology and look forward to working with CiRA to bring better treatments to market faster."
The new facility quadruples current biologics manufacturing capacity and allows the company to extend its offerings as well as enhance the efficiency and output of its GPEx
cell line engineering technology and other mammalian cell lines.
Catalent will engineer a cell line expressing Nascent's proprietary pritumumab antibody using Catalent's GPEx
technology, and will subsequently produce purified monoclonal antibody to support Phase I/II trials with pritumumab for treatment of brain cancers, such as astrocytomas and glioblastomas.
