T cell therapy has been revolutionary, producing durable and effective clinical responses in patients. However, the autologous T cell therapy manufacturing process is complex, labor-intensive, and involves many open processes that can impact regulatory compliance and lead to inconsistencies. Discover how to navigate cGMP manufacturing complexities, minimize errors and contamination, and get therapies to patients faster by introducing a flexible and modular workflow.

Our series of closed, modular instruments can operate together, or independently, while carrying out critical functions of the cell therapy manufacturing process. Through digital automation, workflow components can be both physically and digitally integrated to increase standardization and help you successfully reach your milestones.
