Leaving on a Jet Plane

‘Leaving on a jet plane’ is the title of one of John Denver’s greatest hits. However, it is also what an increasing number of pharmaceutical products do every day, when the results of Medicon Valley based R&D, commercialisation, and manufacturing are sent out to make a difference worldwide.

The binational Danish-Swedish life sciences cluster Medicon Valley consists of the Region Zealand, the Danish Capital Region, and the Swedish region Skåne. It is not only host to cutting-edge public and private life sciences R&D in, for instance, oncology, dermatology, diabetes, fertility, and CNS-related diseases, but also the world’s largest insulin manufacturing site owned by Novo Nordisk and located in the Danish city of Kalundborg. Additionally, Medicon Valley-based companies such as LEO Pharma, Baxter, Coloplast, Ferring, and Lundbeck have substantial local production and/or R&D facilities; this makes Copenhagen Airport a central logistics hub and, since it serves Denmark and South Sweden alike, the most important airport in the Nordics from a life sciences perspective.

pAVEway™ expression system for the efficient expression of therapeutic proteins

Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies

One of the major bottlenecks in the production of biopharmaceuticals is the efficient expression of therapeutic proteins in microbial or mammalian cells. The Escherichia coli pAVEway™ expression system described here has been developed to ensure high product titres and efficient scale up to GMP manufacture, whilst minimising many common issues seen in other expression systems, such as ‘leaky’ expression (expression of recombinant protein in the absence of inducer).
