Pall Integrated Solutions for Gene Therapy
Pall have technologies that enable production of viral vectors on a production scale in a relatively small footprint. The statement holds true for both AAV and lent virus. The talk will cover both upstream and downstream technologies starting with seed train all the way through to the final formulation and filling step. With regards to bioreactors we will cover both adherent cell and suspension cell capabilities and projected future movements in the field. We will touch on process development services (PDS) where Pall are able to bring all of their expertise in continuous intensified process development to shorten the path to market for gene therapies.

Why the introduction of X-ray sterilization technology is a critical change for single-use industry, and how gamma and X-ray irradiation compare
The market demand for gamma irradiation, the current primary method for the sterilization in SUT, will soon significantly exceed supply, creating an urgent need for alternatives.
Join Christelle Marcoux from GSK Vaccines (BioPhorum workstream member on alternatives to gamma sterilization) and James Hathcock, PhD of Pall Corporation (Bio-Process Systems Alliance X-Ray Committee Co-Chair) as they discuss the introduction of X-ray sterilization technology.
You will learn more about:
- Why this is a critical change for industry and the responsibilities of each stakeholder
- Key questions to address for biomanufacturers
- How gamma and X-ray irradiation compare
- What testing has been completed and key milestones for readiness for industry
- An example of how to qualify a SUS sterilized with X-ray irradiation
