Lentifactory: Horizon 2020 SME Instrument - phase I

28-03-2017

Lentifactory project: Vectalys aims to become a worldwide leader in lentiviral tools manufacturing from research to clinical reach.

Acronym: MAGIC, MAnufacturing of Gene delivery tools for Industrial and Clinical applications.

The goal is to up-grade its scalable lentiviral bioproduction platform into GMP to provide both integrative lentiviral vectors for T-cell immunotherapies and LentiFlashTM particles for gene-editing and vaccine based therapies.

Lentifactory, a project funded from the Horizon 2020 programme, will focus on:

  • A GMP scalable manufacturing platform as a response to the lack of expert clinical manufacturing infrastructure in Europe
  • An innovative and non-integrative lentiviral particle, LentiFlash, as a response to the needs of the vaccine and gene-editing market

Fully in line with the work programme’s objectives, this project will provide a revolutionise way to  the transfection market, especially throughout Europe.
