In our Plasmid DNA production, we adhere to the same GMP standards from the starting material to the final drug products. The benefit of choosing a GMP-grade, yet cost-effective, plasmid CDMO from the start, lies in the smooth regulatory transition to the next steps. You can count on our skilled and passionate personnel to find the most suitable path and to guide you through your journey from gene to final vialled product.


Plasmid DNA Projects

Biovian manufactures plasmid DNA for a variety of client projects. One of our main focus areas is Viral Vector manufacturing for those gene therapies, where plasmid DNA constructs serve as key raw material. Our GMP plasmid DNA may also be used to develop novel DNA or mRNA Vaccines and non-viral Gene Therapy applications.

Plasmid DNA applications

  • Viral Vector production (e.g. AAV, Lentivirus)
  • Cell and gene therapy
  • DNA Vaccines
  • mRNA production

Plasmid DNA Production

We have the flexibility to deal with Plasmid DNA projects of various sizes. The options for E. coli fermentation for GMP plasmid DNA production extend up to 200 L.
