Your ideal partner in cell therapy
Advent Bioservices began activity as a cell therapy Contract Development & Manufacturing Organisation (CDMO) in 2016. We are currently managing the development of a state-of-the-art facility for multiproduct Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) production outside Sawston in Cambridgeshire, which will allow scale up of current commercial production and initiate the provision of contract manufacturing services to meet the growing demand for such services in the UK.
The Sawston facility is perfectly positioned in the ‘UK golden triangle’ for cell and gene therapy, our facility is located just 7 miles outside Cambridge city centre with excellent transport links to Central London, London Stansted airport and it is 4 miles from the M11 motorway, linking to the Midlands by the new A14 extension.
The facility consists of 2 separate GMP suites with grade B/C classified areas, in house QC testing, process development laboratories, warehouse and office space as well as a multipurpose cold storage and cryogenic storage unit.
We operate the facility under a comprehensive IT infrastructure including EMS, eQMS eBMR and LIMS systems with secure storage for client documents and paperless systems. Our cleanroom suites are fully validated, with an in-house environmental monitoring system. Clients utilising our manufacturing service will benefit from ancillary services and technical support inclusive of process development, QC and validation. Ultra-cold and cryogenic facilities are available to external clients as off-site storage and are fully GMP compliant.
