Sartorius Stedim will provide both facilities with end-to-end process solutions in single-use (SU) format. It will equip Abzena’s San Diego process development lab with leading industry technologies such as Ambr250, enabling fast scale up to 500 L initially and later to the 2000-L scale single-use bioreactor for its centre of excellence in clinical manufacturing.

John Burt, Abzena CEO, commented: “In addition to having selected Sartorius’ industry-leading single-use technologies for antibody and ADC production, the Abzena facilities will feature Umetrics process analytics software throughout the process ensuring that all the data captured throughout our clients’ molecule development is transformed into process knowledge ensuring that we can rapidly develop a robust and reliable process that can be easily scaled up to ensure a smooth technology transfer.”

Reinhard Vogt, Sartorius Executive VP commented: “We are pleased to have been selected by Abzena, a prominent global CDMO with a comprehensive industry portfolio across a wide range of modalities to supply single-use solutions that enable process development, tech transfer and GMP manufacturing. We look forward to working together to best serve the US and international markets.”
