Our mRNA & LNP offering

mRNA technology uses non-viral delivery systems and offers a great deal of versatility. As naked mRNA is unstable, drug delivery systems, such as lipid nanoparticles, are necessary to deliver mRNA to target cells. Our integrated CDMO capabilities include the development and manufacture of custom mRNAs, synthetic lipids, and the formulation, fill and finish of lipid nanoparticles (LNP). We are committed to direct and flexible customer interactions with life science industries and academic research institutions around the world, including technical support. Our integrated capabilities significantly decrease supply chain complexity and enhance speed-to-market for our customers which in turn will help advance life-enhancing therapeutics for patients.

mRNA CONTRACT DEVELOPMENT AND MANUFACTURING SERVICES

Our integrated CDMO capabilities include the development and manufacture of custom mRNAs. With our proven AmpTec™ workflow, mRNA manufacturing is highly reproducible. Key features include:

  • Production of fully customizable sequences, up to 13,000 nucleotides
  • A significantly lower requirement (~10,000x) for plasmid DNA compared to standard mRNA manufacturing processes
  • Highly reproducible process yielding mRNA with a homogeneous poly A tail and high-performing product

SYNTHETIC LIPIDS FOR PHARMACEUTICAL APPLICATIONS

We are highly specialized in synthesizing top-quality, GMP lipids for pharmaceutical applications and gene therapy, focusing on tailored manufacturing to meet your specific needs. We also offer a standard portfolio with optimized stability, solubility, and handling characteristics. If lipid blends are needed, we can provide lyophilization and spray drying.

Benefits of our lipids include:

  • Support in every phase of development and marketing
  • cGMPs and site standards that follow ICH Q7 concepts
  • Consistent, high product quality from grams to tons
  • Stability studies and analytical method development and validation
  • Regulatory expertise and counsel from a dedicated team
  • An excellent track record of customer and FDA audits
