8 Ways That Osmolality Testing Improves Cell and Gene Therapy Processing

Gene and cell therapies have the potential to revolutionize the treatment of incurable diseases which are often debilitating, if not fatal. Compelling clinical successes and recent drug approvals have fueled ongoing investments in this exciting area of therapeutic research, with over 1000 therapies in clinical trials at the end of 2019 [1]. Despite the forward momentum in the clinic, challenges remain to be solved in order to make these novel drugs accessible to larger patient populations. As it stands now, downstream recoveries are as low as 5-30% for viral vector production, depending on the process [2]. Manufacturing capacity, production yields, and supply chain logistics continue to be an area of focus for improvements to ensure customers get safe and affordable therapies.

The key to improvement and success is implementing high quality process design and process parameters to ensure robustness and reproducibility. What tools and checks can be implemented to ensure constant product and process control?
