Cytovance® Biologics, Inc., a leading full-service contract manufacturer of mammalian and microbial biologics, announces the planned expansion of its microbial manufacturing capabilities.

In addition to its current 100L Fermenter, Cytovance recently acquired a second 100L and a 1000L Fermenter.

Applicable processing and downstream equipment upgrades to support this larger scale will also be acquired.

A facility expansion to house these new systems is currently in the planning stages. When operational, these systems will provide Cytovance's clients with the additional capacity needed to meet their program requirements.

“This increase in microbial manufacturing capacity is to meet growing customer demands for microbial fermentation services,” commented Darren Head, Cytovance President & CEO.  “This marks another milestone in our contract manufacturing strategy of providing clinical material to key clients as they move though the clinic and into commercial manufacturing.”

In January, Cytovance also announced expansion to its mammalian manufacturing capabilities with the inclusion of a 5000L stainless steel bioreactor.  This addition compliments the existing manufacturing process trains that include 100L, 500L and 1,000L bioreactors, 100L wave system and 50L and 200L Sartorius subs.

Cytovance continues to provide analytical method development and process development for phase I, II, and III clinical trial materials as well as regulatory expertise to support validation and commercial market launch for therapeutic proteins, recombinant proteins and monoclonal antibodies.
