Biologics are a highly effective therapeutic option with broad applicability across many indications. However, the traditional fed-batch manufacturing presents significant challenges, especially when upscaling from clinical to commercial supply. With a modular continuous manufacturing setup, the J.POD® technology allows for highly intensified cGMP manufacturing of biologics at flexibly scalable quantities, thus reducing both scale-up risks and manufacturing costs significantly. Evotec Biologics’ second J.POD® facility marks an important milestone on their path to making biologics globally available.
