A New Platform for Clinical Gene Editing of iPSCs to Make Clonal Cell Banks

Solentim presents a platform combination of instrumentation (the VIPS™) and soluble matrix (MatriClone™, based on laminin) for the high-efficiency, high-viability single-cell cloning of iPSCs to form the Master Cell Bank. This includes an industry-leading clonality documentation package to support future INDs.

Operational cGMP considerations will also be presented as we recognise the need for cell therapy customers to implement systems in research today that can then be replicated in their clinical manufacturing.  Solentim looks to bring its technology in-line with global cGMP requirements and validation according to cGMP and specific GAMP 5 principles plus regulatory requirements for computerised systems including 21 CFR part 11 and Eudralex Volume 4 annex 11. This is essential for customers planning to adopt this approach in their GMP manufacturing environment.

Illustrative data and images will be presented to demonstrate data quality, assurance and integrity and process improvements.
