About CEVEC:

CEVEC is a global solution provider for the production of biopharmaceuticals using a unique human cell-based expression system.

The CAP®GT expression platform provides a fully scalable, regulatory endorsed production system for gene therapy vectors. CAP®GT cells grow to high cell densities and show a broad viral propagation spectrum including lentivirus (LV), adenovirus (AV) and adeno-associated virus (AAV). Furthermore, CAP®GT enables easier scale-up and reduced production costs when compared to adherent cell culture systems.

CEVEC’s CAP®Go expression platform comprises a portfolio of glyco-optimized human suspension cell lines for tailor-made glycosylation of recombinant proteins. The cells are highly efficient for the production of a broad range of difficult to express glycoproteins and provide authentic human post-translational modifications. CAP®Go has proven to enhance the activity, stability and serum half-life of several candidate proteins.

Research collaborations with international pharmaceutical and biotechnology partners followed by licensing agreements for the technology form one revenue base for CEVEC. In addition, the Company provides contract manufacturing for the GMP production in CAP®Go and CAP®GT cells.
