OCTOBER 03, 2017
Grambach, Austria: – Protein expression specialist VTU Technology will present its wide-ranging Pichia pastoris protein production toolbox when it makes its debut as an exhibitor at Europe’s largest pharmaceutical trade fair, CPhI Worldwide in Frankfurt in late October.
VTU’s stand at Booth 41G30 will form part of the Austrian Pavilion at Messe, Frankfurt.
VTU’s Head of Business Development Dr. Thomas Purkarthofer, will lead the team at CPhI Worldwide, where it will present latest advances and applications of its world-leading Pichia pastoris recombinant production platform for higher efficiency production of a wide range of recombinant protein candidates.
The team will also use the event´s partnering systems to reach out to new collaborators from different industries such as biopharmaceutical, food & feed, diagnostics, chemical and agro-industry.
“Our experience over recent years has confirmed for us how important it is to meet our existing and potential customers face to face,” said Dr. Purkarthofer.
VTU offers customized high-performance protein production strains and offer straightforward cultivation & purification process development and optimization services paired with seamless technology transfer. Preparation and characterization of microbial cell banks and development of high-value enzymes through enzyme engineering services complement VTU´s broad service portfolio.
VTU´s Pichia technology is being used to produce numerous commercial proteins in each case meeting the demands of different regulatory authorities. All components of VTU´s Pichia toolbox are animal-origin-free and thoroughly characterized and full documentation is readily available to support regulatory filings.
“With the advances we’ve made during the past years, we can showcase even more powerful Pichia pastoris applications, including enhancements to our glycoprotein production package by combining our proprietary Pichia pastoris production platform with RCT´s Pichia GlycoSwitch system enabling boosted production of tailored glycoproteins,” Dr. Purkarthofer said.
“VTU Technology provides industrial protein production solutions ideally suited for efficient large scale manufacturing processes with exceptionally high yields leading to low cost-of-goods,” Dr. Purkarthofer noted.
“VTU Pichia not only enables high volumetric productivities but also simplifies downstream processing due to efficient product secretion and low levels of endogenous proteins in the culture supernatant,” he added.
