We are seasoned scientists, fueled by curiosity.
Our team offers a wealth of experience with recombinant viral vector development and GMP manufacturing for cell and gene therapy that will help you get your project moving at the speed of science.
Why partner with Paragon Bioservices?
We’re passionate about science, just like you. Which means we seek out projects based on our enthusiasm to push science forward. And that approach has driven our team of experienced scientists to help develop hundreds of recombinant viral vectors, including AAV, adenovirus and retrovirus, that have changed the face of medicine.
While other CMOs may focus on one or two specialties, our team offers experience and insight for a wide range of areas. Our depth of experience has allowed us to learn a lot of different approaches to new challenges, which translates to fewer roadblocks and accelerated development. Plus, with our cutting-edge technology, we’re able to work closely with you to solve problems and ensure that your project is delivered on time.
