GMP - Manufacturing of advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMP)
Through the flexible design, the facility is especially attractive for biotechnology companies that seek to bring newly developed cell-based medicinal products into clinical application via clinical trials. The facility is divided into different independent suites. Each has its own grade C clean rooms (preparation), own air locks from grade C to B (personnel and materials transport) and two grade B rooms (aseptic manufacturing). The clean room grade A is provided via laminar airflow cabinets that are installed in the B-rooms. The available clean room suites are specialized for processes associated with manufacturing of human autologous or allogeneic cell-based therapeutics (e. g. tissue engineering products, stem cell preparations, cancer vaccines, gene therapeutics). Besides the clean rooms and the technical and, respectively, regulatory infrastructure, the Fraunhofer IZI offers assistance for the set-up and validation of GMP-compliant manufacturing processes as well as for obtaining a manufacturing authorization according to §13 of the German Drug Act.
