G-CON Manufacturing and Ori Biotech Collaborate to Develop an Integrated Modular Manufacturing Platform for Cell and Gene Therapy Developers

G-CON Manufacturing, Inc. (G-CON), a leader in prefabricated flexible cleanroom solutions, and Ori Biotech Ltd. (Ori), an innovator in cell and gene therapy (CGT) manufacturing, announced today their global collaboration to offer a predesigned platform for flexible manufacturing of cell therapies. The non-exclusive collaboration integrates Ori’s proprietary, flexible CGT manufacturing platform with the highly innovative prefabricated cleanroom that is the G-CON POD. The combination of the two technologies will provide standardized CGT manufacturing in a closed platform that can be seamlessly scaled for clinical through commercial scale manufacturing.


Ori’s ability to increase throughput, improve quality and decrease cost coupled with G-CON’s extensive experience in building cGMP manufacturing facilities for various modalities will combine to achieve the ultimate goal to help therapy developers bring lifesaving therapies to patients more quickly and cost effectively.


“G-CON is a leader in flexible cell and gene therapy manufacturing and, with this collaboration, Ori continues to partner with best-in-class, expert suppliers across the CGT ecosystem. This partnership will help enable our vision for a fully integrated, automated, closed system manufacturing platform supporting the cell and gene therapy industry,” said Farlan Veraitch, Co-Founder and CSO, Ori Biotech. “Innovation that reduces the significant size and cost of cell and gene therapy manufacturing facilities to enable scalable capacity, distributed manufacturing and marks another step toward enabling our partners to bring their life saving treatments to patients at scale.”


“A significant, upfront investment of $50M-$150M is often required to develop manufacturing capacity and building large bricks and mortar manufacturing facilities presents major challenges for CGT developers.  An Ori powered G-CON POD[A1]  can provide a flexible model with rapid scalability to manufacture thousands of doses of advanced therapies in a much smaller footprint, reducing the required facility investment by up to 75%” added Jason C. Foster, CEO, Ori Biotech.


”Ori is a pioneer in the cell therapy field with a truly disruptive technology in development,” said Peter Makowenskyj, Director of Sales Engineering for G-CON. “Enhancing automation and closing the process really eliminates a lot of the high cost elements and manual interventions currently required in making cell therapies. Our collaboration aligns well with Pharma 4.0 initiatives along with distributed manufacturing and will ultimately bring these treatments to patients more quickly and cost effectively.”
