The Capacity for Bigger Breakthroughs 

Since 1998, Aldevron has been providing our partners with the solutions to advance discoveries. We have made intentional and deliberate choices in expanding our CDMO footprint with purpose-built construction and highly-designed renovation to serve our clients wherever they are in their development – whether at the start of their research or preparing for the clinic.

Our collective and unmatched industry experience helped guide the creation of our manufacturing facilities to be unlike anything seen before in biotechnology.

Breakthrough Campus

Fargo, North Dakota

Aldevron’s Breakthrough Campus serves as HQ and as one of the world’s largest cGMP plasmid DNA manufacturing facilities. Breakthrough has been purpose built with the latest innovations and state-of-the-art equipment to produce DNA, mRNA and protein. This manufacturing facility was visited by the Center for Biologics Evaluation & Research (CBER) in November 2021. CBER conducted a Pre-License Inspection (PLI) and a general GMP audit of Aldevron, LLC. No Form FDA 483 was issued, and the inspection was classified as no action indicated (NAI).
