Invetech is developing GMP-compliant manufacturing equipment tailored to Erytech's proprietary encapsulation technology. The manufacturing system will be designed to allow rapid capacity expansion to accommodate production volume needs for commercialization of Erytech's product candidates following the receipt of the necessary regulatory approvals. The customized equipment will fully integrate with Erytech's selected Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to seamlessly manage electronic patient batch records. The system will be designed to provide Erytech with an advanced capability for consistent, controlled product quality within the production process, highly configurable process control in development, and the flexibility to modify the system to address the manufacturing requirements of future product candidates based on Erytech's ERYCAPS technology platform.
"Our depth of knowledge in cell handling, scalability and manufacturing automation allows us to identify and develop the optimal streamlined manufacturing process. The solutions we will be developing for Erytech will support product consistency and efficacy, ensure regulatory compliance, and are anticipated to result in a lower cost of goods for Erytech," said David Kneen, cell therapy program manager at Invetech. "This collaboration reflects Invetech's expertise in multi-disciplinary system integration, and longstanding commitment to providing robust, innovative design solutions that address the challenges presented by cell and advanced therapy manufacture."
