Regulatory Considerations

  • The new EU Advanced Therapy Medicinal Product (ATMP) guidelines, Eudralex Vol 4, Part IV, Good Manufacturing Practice for Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products states: “reconstitution activities can be performed at the administration site outside a GMP environment” subject to a number of caveats.
  • The Processor is GMP equipment and forms part of the Cell Therapy Manufacturers (CTM) licensed process
  • The Disposable is a GMP consumable and is manufactured, assembled, wrapped, labelled and sterilised by a reputable single use supplier.

Potential Applications

  • At the Point of Care (PoC), allowing expensive, short shelf life cell therapies to be transported and stored frozen and then thawed when everything is ready for administration. This also reduces the risks and costs of current manual methods
  • Initiation of cell culture from a cell bank in a GMP facility with a standard repeatable process
  • Thawing of cell samples for QC with a standard repeatable process.
