Celonic launches stand-alone GMP analytics portfolio
Challenging positions in upstream processing
On 1.500 sqm, Celonic is located right in the heart of Basel city, in the broader triangle where France, Germany and Switzerland intersect. The facility comprises 400 sqm clean rooms for GMP production with an option for further expansion. For GMP analytics and R&D extensive lab capacities are reserved and equipped according to technology standards.
The GMP production can be offered up to 1.000 l scale in a wave bioreactor and up to 300 l in a stirred vessel. Further bioreactors in 2, 10, 20, 50 und 75 l scale (wave and stirred vessel) are available. An extension of the facility towards a 2.000 l stirred vessel is awaiting the co-financing agreement.
For downstream processing, state-of-the-art equipment is applied, e.g. tangential flow filtration for cell separation (Pall) and Akta-based Systems (GE Healthcare) for chromatographic separation. In analytics, we have established and qualified all analytic devices and methods necessary for characterisation of intermediates (e.g. HPAEC-PAD for glycoanalytics) and biologic Drug Substance.
Thus, Celonic’s Basel facility is fully equipped for production of biopharmaceutical products for clinical trials and commercial market. The clean rooms comprise 2 independent production suites for drug manufacture.
