G-CON Manufacturing has been selected to build an ISO Class 5 POD for Instituto Butantan, a biomedical research centre.

Instituto Butantan, based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, ordered the POD for use in clinical production of recombinant BCG, a product intended to be an improved treatment for bladder cancer.

Instituto Butantan is purchasing a standard size POD that is 3.66m x 12.80m x 3.51m.

The POD is designed to provide approximately 312ft2 of cleanroom space, with a custom configuration for the filling and finishing of the clinical product.

This POD will be the first project to be delivered internationally by G-CON.

G-CON will provide shipping, delivery and installation of the POD. The company is also working with Instituto Butantan on other opportunities for applying PODs to help meet their future manufacturing needs.
