Langenfeld, Germany: – ARTES Biotechnology, the German-based specialist for cell line and process development for recombinant protein and vaccines, is headed for Strasbourg to participate in the annual BioFIT partnering conference for the life sciences industry.

“We look forward to attending BioFIT as a great place to get into productive conversations about new collaborations,” commented Dr. Piontek. “The choice of Strasbourg as a venue is also propitious, with French partners now able to benefit from ability to claim tax relief on generated costs outsourced to ARTES’ R&D services, thanks to recent granting of CIR research tax relief accreditation.”

ARTES will also use the conference to share knowledge about its proprietary VLP technology METAVAX® for antigen presentation and on other vaccine technologies. It will also exchange information on its cell line and process development for other bio-pharmaceutical products.
