Structured DNA Repeats

A plasmid replication challenge

For decades, the cell and gene therapy industry has been using the same plasmid technology in vaccination, cell and gene therapy, and as a raw material in viral vector and RNA production. In some cases, that technology isn’t a good fit for the processes where it’s being used. Now, with the growing popularity of Nanoplasmid™ vectors, that is starting to change.

A Three-Step RNA Progression

An outlook for mRNA, saRNA and Circular RNA

When mRNA vaccines began to roll out in late 2020 to fight the COVID pandemic, it was the first large-scale use of the molecule after years of research. But the success of those vaccines was only the beginning of new opportunities for the RNA field.

Lessons Learned & Looking to the Future

Thoughts from the World Vaccine Congress

Managing the H1N1 outbreak in 2009 was considered a practice run for the recent SARS-CoV2 pandemic and, over the last two years, we certainly learned a great deal in being prepared for the next virus to gain a foothold. That was the backdrop as we returned to the World Vaccine Congress in Washington, DC.

The Benefits of Streamlining and Standardizing Plasmid DNA for Cell and Gene Therapies

Manufacturing standardization for cell and gene therapies (C&GT) has received increased focus in the last several years, spurred by the rapid exponential growth witnessed in this field. The resulting need for improved access to high-quality raw materials, including plasmid DNA, has made standardization integral to streamlining the development process for this biologic product category.
