Advance Campus

Advance Campus - Fargo, North Dakota

Aldevron's Advance campus is home to three separate facilities, anchored by our 45,000-square-foot manufacturing building. The entire campus is fully integrated to support R&D, process development and the manufacture of plasmid DNA and mRNA for early-stage research purposes.
