Collaboration to support biotech company’s clinical and commercial production efforts.
Elektrofi, a biotechnology company focused on drug formulation and delivery services, has entered into an agreement with Thermo Fisher Scientific, a pharmaceutical equipment supplier. The deal aims to support clinical production of Elektrofi’s ultra-high concentration subcutaneous products.
The collaboration will facilitate the design of a platform current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) line—expected to be operational by early 2024—that supports early clinical efforts and enables scale-up for late-stage and commercial development. Created to navigate the challenges of delivering biologic-based therapies, this technology will reportedly allow patients to self-inject these therapies at home, as opposed to a hospital setting.
“ …We’re thrilled to partner with Thermo Fisher […] to meet this goal and continue advancing our efforts to change the way biologic-based drugs are delivered,” says Chase Hoffman, CEO and co-founder of Elektrofi. As previously alluded to, the company executive also notes that in order for clinical development to be successful, certified cGMP manufacturing capabilities need to be established.
