Virus Production

In addition to its current GMP facility, Paragon has recently constructed a totally segregated new facility dedicated to virus manufacturing and research services. The 8000 square feet facility is completely separate with respect to utilities, equipment, and personnel. This facility includes a state-of-the-art process development laboratory and a newly constructed GMP suite. The process development laboratories include two fermentation suites, several purification centers, an analytical laboratory and product storage space. The facility is also equipped with cleanroom suites dedicated to virus production (one microbial suite (40L capacity ) and two mammalian virus suites (cell expansion and production to 25L capacity), and one central downstream suite (for suspension cultures, roller bottles and cell factories):

Adherent cultures

Cell stacks
Roller bottles

Suspension cultures

Up to 200L, disposable technology

Ultracentrifugation, filtration, and chromatographic-based processing
