Avantor expands its innovation center for bioprocessing

By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

June 30, 2020 -- Avantor is increasing its investment in bioprocessing infrastructure by expanding its innovation center in Bridgewater, NJ.

The expanded innovation center will enhance the company's research and development efforts to support customized product and bioprocess development, as well as cell and gene therapy reagent manufacturing to support customers' therapeutic products for personalized medicines.

The Bridgewater site now has nearly double the laboratory and support space. The center will house new bioprocessing products that minimize risk of contamination and variability for cell and gene therapy, monoclonal antibodies, and vaccines. Some of these products include high-purity products, single-use solutions, and small-volume current good manufacturing practice reagents in single-use bags.

For example, the recently launched JT Baker Bakerbond ProchievA recombinant protein A resin for purifying monoclonal antibodies was developed at the Bridgewater innovation center.
