Aldevron and Odylia, a nonprofit organization working to develop treatments for ultra-rare ocular diseases using gene therapy, have entered into an agreement in which Aldevron is a member of Odylia.
Aldevron and Integrated DNA Technologies, Inc. (IDT), a supplier of custom nucleic acid and genome editing products, have announced a license agreement whereby Aldevron will manufacture and distribute a S. pyogenes Cas9 variant—known as SpyFiTM Cas9 Nuclease—which is patented by IDT. The product will be manufactured for research, clinical, and commercial use.
Aldevron, a leading global provider of contract plasmid DNA manufacturing, protein production and antibody discovery services, announces the availability of GMP-grade SpCas9 nuclease for use in clinical development programs. Aldevron’s GMP SpCas9 is designed to accelerate gene editing clinical trials and commercial applications by providing an immediate enzyme supply; thereby eliminating months typically associated with contract GMP production and testing.
