Microbial Biopharmaceutical CDMO

Biovian is a One-Stop-Shop CDMO for bacterial and yeast-based production of Drug Substances and Drug Products. Our services include GMP production of recombinant proteins and of plasmid DNA for vaccines, as well as Viral Vector applications for those gene therapies, where plasmid DNA constructs serve as key raw material. The microbial GMP-manufacturing unit of Biovian is equipped with state-of-the-art fermenters, harvesting equipment and a choice of downstream purification capabilities. Manufacturing and purification options cover both secreted and intracellular products.


Examples of the capabilities of Biovian in Microbial Biologics manufacturing:

  • First-in-class biopharmaceuticals
  • GMP-grade Plasmid DNA
  • Vaccines
  • Recombinant proteins and protein complexes
My experience with Biovian is based on one long-term project that includes both Drug Substances and Drug Products. Biovian has been a good partner. The project, comprising development and several technical and GMP batches, were on time and within budget over a period of 5-6 years – I believe that could be a world record!
