Gritgen Therapeutics has launched operations at its commercial GMP facility in Suzhou Industrial Park, China.
Gritgen will begin production of AAV [adeno-associated virus]-based products including its Phase III clinical and commercial product for haemophilia A.
The 8,600m² facility covers plasmid production and AAV production lines.
The production lines are based on a downstream process with chromatography platform technology and an upstream process with mammalian cell suspension.
They are equipped with disposable bioreactors of varying scales, the largest with the highest capacity of 1,000 litres.
The facility also features pilot filling lines and commercial fill-finish lines to meet the needs of drug manufacturers.

A quality control laboratory covering physicochemical, biochemical, molecular biological and microbiological tests is also available.
Production lines in the facility are completely physically separated, controlling cross-contamination risk.
Gritgen Therapeutics co-founder and CEO Dr Wu Fenglan stated: “The validation and operational launch of our GMP facility represents a pivotal juncture for Gritgen, which provides an important vector foundation for the company to realise commercialisation.
“At present, a bottleneck of gene therapy is the manufacturing process, a challenge resonating globally.
“The production capacity of large-scale, high-quality, cost-controllable vectors is an important driving force for the development of the gene therapy industry.”
