Alpha Teknova has opened a new modular manufacturing facility in Hollister, California, US, for custom high-quality life sciences reagents.

The facility will help bioprocessing and gene therapy companies scale from research to clinical production.

The new facility was previously operational for research-grade production. Following the ISO 13485: 2016 certification, it will now produce GMP-grade high-quality reagents.

A number of 10,000ft² GMP-certified ISO cleanrooms will provide a three-fold increase in overall manufacturing capacity. Expanded formulation, dispensing, warehouse and cleanrooms with increased automation support single-use needs and provide animal-free and endotoxin-controlled environments.

Teknova president and CEO Stephen Gunstream stated: “Our team has worked tirelessly over the past two years to build our new GMP-certified production facility here in Hollister and its opening represents a momentous milestone in our company’s evolution.

“We kept hearing from our customers that they wanted a partner who could support them with custom reagent manufacturing as they scale from research through process development and into clinical trials, particularly in batch volumes of less than 2,000 litres.
