Pooling expertise: Fraunhofer IPT and Harro Höfliger cooperate in the manufacturing of ATMP production systems

New mRNA vaccines and gene therapeutics have gained media attention as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. These pharmaceuticals, known as ATMP (Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products), contain living cells or the nucleic acids DNA or RNA. Producing such ATMPs in high quality requires customized production facilities and an associated range of services. The Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT and Harro Höfliger from Allmersbach im Tal are now entering into a cooperation to develop fully automated ATMP production systems: Together, the partners are developing an offer for consulting, analysis and product development through to the serial production of marketable ATMP systems.
