SIRION Expedites AAV Production with Increased Lab Capacity
SIRION Biotech, a global supplier of high-quality AAV vectors, has expanded its staff to meet the growing market demand for high scale AAV products in the preclinical sector.
The number of gene therapy clinical trials is increasing every year, as is the number of researchers developing new targets and therapies. This growing market demand, combined with supply challenges due to the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, led to production bottlenecks and delays worldwide.
"Our additional staff has allowed us to bring our AAV production lead time down to just 2 weeks in our new ISO-Certified facility in Graefelfing." says Dr. Kathrin Schneider, SVP Global Business. " This will help our customers to run their experiments and generate critical data to meet their timelines."
