3- 4 pm CET
Access/registration link

Date: November 29th, 2023

Time: 11 AM (CET)

Description: Viral manufacturing today faces significant limitations in the ability to produce at scale while maintaining sustainable costs. Conventional manufacturing technologies are inherently limited in their ability to support large-scale, cost-effective viral production. The novel structured fixed-bed design of Univercells Technologies aims to overcome these challenges through technology innovation, supporting rapid process transfer with higher specific productivities for different viral applications. 

This webinar aims to showcase: 

•             how scalable-by-design fixed-bed technology addresses limitations associated with conventional manufacturing technologies enabling rapid process transfer with higher specific productivities, cleaner harvest, and higher full/empty capsid ratio; 

•             a CDMO technology transfer with optimization and scale-up performed in under 8 months; 

•             how to make cGMP vaccine manufacturing accessible for decentralized manufacturing with reduction of manufacturing costs and increase of capacity.
