Plasmid DNA (pDNA)

Plasmid DNA (pDNA) Manufacturing

Plasmid DNA (pDNA) is used for a wide range of applications in research, preclinical and clinical studies. Most commonly known in the context of COVID-19 vaccines, pDNA serves as a starting material for the production of mRNA. In addition, pDNA is used at the starting point of producing viral vectors, such as AAVs (Adeno-Associated Virus Vectors) and Lentiviral Vectors. 

Flexible and scalable platforms for GMP-compliant manufacturing of plasmid DNA improves commercialized production.

Controlled Rate Freezing

RoSS.LN2F

RoSS.LN2F is a powerful cryogenic controlled rate freezer for temperatures down to -180°C/-292°F. An enclosed and innovative platform system for dosed freezing for cell and gene therapies enables no direct exposure, and no mechanical compressors are needed. This ensures a safe, low-maintenance and energy-saving handling.
