Viral Vector Bioprocessing: Innovations and Challenges


Viral vectors have become one of the most rapidly evolving and promising fields in vaccinology and regenerative medicine. As the industry continues to grow, biopharmaceutical manufacturers are developing, optimizing and scaling-up production processes to establish or expand viral vector production facilities. Viral based-processes are challenging to develop because each vector has its own properties. How then should process development scientists and engineers approach the development of a viral vector platform, knowing that each process is unique?

This webinar will give you an overview of Sartorius’ platform approach to process development. This approach allows companies to reduce the time required to bring their products to the clinic and to market while providing them with consistent process performance.

The presenter will describe the toolbox of technologies and services proven to be efficient in the development, production and analysis of viral vector processes. The performance of a single-use viral vector platform will be illustrated by a case study based on adenoviruses.

Please register to reserve your spot for this exciting webinar and we look forward to welcoming you to our presentation.
