SIRION Biotech

SIRION Biotech GmbH and Vibalogics GmbH, have signed a strategic partnership agreement

Munich, Germany - SIRION Biotech GmbH and Vibalogics GmbH, have signed a strategic partnership agreement designed to meet demand from gene therapy companies for a start-to-finish Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) service.

The new service offering, which will be available from the beginning of 2018, will allow the two companies to cater to virtually all customer needs for viral vector services, from initial vector engineering and development to GMP production.

As part of the collaboration, SIRION Biotech will provide specialist AAV technology, while Vibalogics will act as its production partner for customers ready to progress to clinical trials.

Dr. Christian Thirion, CTO and founder of SIRION Biotech said: “This step will allow us to offer one of the most versatile and complete AAV services packages in the world and meet demand for a more streamlined development and supply process. We are looking forward to a partnership that will empower gene therapy companies to make sure that ingenious new treatments get to the patient without delay.”

Along with the expanded service offering, the companies will also establish new stringent quality levels for pre-clinical virus batches that will emulate Vibalogics’ GMP production methods. This strategy will ensure that pre-clinical research can be conducted with fully scalable products at ‘GMP-like’ quality, while maintaining cost and time efficiency.

Dr. Stefan Beyer, Managing Director of Vibalogics said: “We are delighted to enter into this partnership and be in a position to offer our customers a broader service than we can offer alone. We believe that this is a great opportunity for companies in the AAV field to benefit from a seamless transition from pre-clinical activities to clinical manufacturing.”

SIRION Biotech, based in Munich, is a virus engineering expert specialising in viral vector technologies. Using its team of specialists and expertise in the biotech industry, the company carries out complex development projects to customize AAV dynamics and improve vector tropisms, safety and productivity.

Working Towards a Standardised Identification Solution

PCI Pharma Services

The security of the pharmaceutical supply chain is an issue of growing concern, with recent reports addressing its vulnerability to counterfeiting. The complexity of the European supply chain is one of the key factors of this counterfeiting pandemic, with millions of medicine packs being moved around the EU, annually. Aside from this, fragmentation has resulted in decreased transparency in the supply chain and increased difficulties to track and trace medicines, leading to significant threat from counterfeiting. As a key source of income for the European economy, it is essential that the supply chain remains safe and free of counterfeits. A significant stumbling block within the industry remains to be the lack of a unified, single‐source pan‐European or indeed global database where scanned bar codes on drug packaging can be verified at point of dispense. At some point in the future the pharmaceutical industry, regulatory bodies, clinicians and retailers will need to join forces to overcome this.
