Commercial Supply

IDT Biologika has extensive experience in the transfer and validation of biological processes. We routinely manage transfers of existing products to one of our facilities with practiced efficiency and minimized risk. Our track record scaling processes from clinical to commercial production under GMP and up to BSL-2 enables us to provide the required volumes of high-quality products at all phases in the product lifecycle.

Our technologies and equipment scaling are flexible, enabling us to accommodate variations in volumes or titers required for cell and gene therapeutics.

We offer drug product, fill-finish and packaging of viral vectors and oncolytic viruses from clinical phases to commercial supply, with manufacturing in Europe and North America.

Quality Control & Regulatory Support

Our extensive experience with the common manufacturing platforms used in viral vector manufacturing assures product quality and helps smooth the regulatory approvals process. We offer development of client-specific methods, along with all the necessary services in methods transfer, validation, release testing, and stability studies. We support our clients with regulatory expertise and advice based on our considerable experience and knowledge from similar projects, and we will help you in the preparation of CMC documents and required regulatory filings.

Having produced one of the first commercial cell and gene therapy products approved by the FDA and EMA, we have a proven history that you can trust.

All cell and gene therapy specific Quality Control Testing can be done in-house at IDT Biologika. Our broad Analytical Portfolio for Process and Product Characterization includes among others

  • Adventitious viruses testing via NGS
  • Method for hcDNA is developed and prevalidated in-house
  • Mycoplasma method based on qPCR is completely developed, validated and operated in-house
