Single-use technologies

Cell and gene therapies are quickly advancing through the development stages, and an increasing number of therapies are in clinical trials and progressing to commercial approval. The more advanced the development process, the more important it is to establish a robust, repeatable and sustainable process. Single-use technology is perfect for the cell and gene therapy markets because it provides the flexibility required to establish new processes, while enabling standardization of processes at multiple scales later on.

We have partnered with cell and gene therapy developers for many years. Along with our cell culture, purification and analytics solutions, we offer the expertise, service and solutions you need for your process independent of cell line.

Custom Purification Resin

Thermo Fisher Scientific offers custom chromatography solutions to purify complex molecules that aren’t easily processed using off-the-shelf solutions. We are an industry leader in the development of custom affinity ligands, manufacture of resins, and in supplying material at bioprocessing scale. Supply chain and program management along with our multiple manufacturing sites help us to ensure security of supply for our customers.

Custom resins provide maximum process efficiency because they deliver high purity, high yield, high titers and superior resolution in fewer downstream processing steps. Reducing process steps and delivering high yields can result in significant cost savings. Additionally, we provide regulatory support and documentation for your GMP manufacturing process.
