From two GMP manufacturing facilities, SNBTS have 20 years’ experience delivering autologous and allogeneic products for FIH, Phase 1 & 2 trials, and manufacture of Master Cell Banks of hESC and iPSC lines. As an NHS establishment, TCAT is uniquely positioned to support academic and other early-stage developers in the translation of their ‘proof of concept’ stage products into GMP-compatible processes, and to manufacture these products for early-stage clinical trials. TCAT has proven expertise working with somatic cells, pluripotent stem cells and their derivatives, and genetically modified cell therapies. SNBTS TCAT has extensive in-house QC capacity, specifically developed for ATMPs, including endotoxin and sterility, cell identify and function, and stability studies. These QC services are offered as part of a CDMO package or as stand-alone services.
