Keeping Pace with Demand for Next Generation Proteins
Next Generation Proteins
Meeting the growing demand for proteins worldwide for human and animal health with highly productive scalable microbial biomanufacturing platforms and products.
To improve how we feed, fuel, and heal the world by utilizing modern biotechnology to revolutionize medicine, agriculture, nutrition, and food.
Current methods to produce high quality and high throughput proteins at low cost are not adequate to meet the growing global demand for vaccines, monoclonal and other antibodies, therapeutic proteins, as well as food, nutrition, and diagnostic enzymes and proteins.
The pandemic has highlighted key challenges that have existed within biomanufacturing that will only increase as demand or circumstances, such as a global pandemic or endemic threat, climate change, and population increase continue to drive rising demand not only for lifesaving biologic products but also food and nutrition products.
Material and Equipment
Shortened timeframes and shortage of raw materials, equipment, consumables, lipid nanoparticles due to high demand
Examples: Cell culture media, Bioreactor bags, vials, tangential flow filters
Inherent challenges include time to produce new cell lines, drug substance, process optimization, aseptic techniques, cold manufacturing
Infrastructure and production requirements, cold storage and distribution challenges, geographic challenges
