June 8, 2021 -- Bio-Techne is joining the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult process analytical technology (PAT) consortium, which includes over 20 pharmaceutical companies, technology providers, therapy developers, and charities.
The consortium will assess the application and combination of multiple technologies for process analytics within the cell and gene therapy industry. Its first initiative is to unite companies and organizations from multiple industries to develop cell and gene therapy specific process analytical technologies.
These technologies will enable monitoring and control during the manufacturing process, including improving batch yields and lowering manufacturing costs. Consortium members will collaborate and share research findings to integrate and combine cell and gene therapy PAT into their respective offerings.
