Important Information: The event, which was due to take place from 11th March 2020, has been postponed.

Martinsried, Germany: – Bavarian-based viral technology specialist SIRION Biotech GmbH will return to the congress of the French Society of Cellular and Genetic Therapy (SFTCG), this year being held in Lyon.

Once again, SIRION will be looking to exchange knowledge with respected peers in the fields of biotherapies, regenerative medicine, gene transfer and cell biology, while presenting its leading capabilities in developing adeno-associated viruses (AAVs) and viral vectors.

Lentiviral transduction enhancement

The SIRION team in Lyon will be led by Dr. Francois Vromman, its Director of Sales & Business Development for France, Benelux & Italy.

“In our conversations, we will be stressing SIRION Biotech’s expertise in viral vector design optimization and our abilities to provide innovative solutions for improvement of the clinical trials that require lentiviral transduction enhancement,” said Dr. Vromman.

About SIRION Biotech

Founded at Martinsried, near Munich, in 2007, SIRION Biotech has become Europe’s leading commercial supplier of viral vectors used for genetic research, clinical target validation, cell and gene therapy and vaccination studies. It is SIRION’s mission to change the paradigm for viral vector supplies, with their ability to develop and supply all major viral vector types (adenovirus, lentivirus, AAV) within a matter of weeks at the concentration titres and quantities needed for preclinical human and animal testing.

Its unique focus on improving transduction efficiencies and safety makes SIRION Biotech a valuable technology partner for gene and cell therapy trials. LentiBOOST transduction reagent is actively used to improve, among others, hematopoietic cell transductions in clinical trials. NextGen AAV capsid evolution projects aim to improve tissue targeting and immune escape of capsids to usher in a new generation of therapeutics for international gene therapy companies. SIRION offerings include the transformational RNAiONE knockdown validation platform along with a full range of virus related services, ranging from particle production to virus driven cell modelling.

SIRION Biotech International is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SIRION Biotech GmbH providing custom engineering and manufacturing services of viral vectors for the life sciences industry.
