CO.DON AG is a German company specialized in cell cultivation for the regenerative treatment of articular cartilage defects. CO.DON AG commissioned us to design and manufacture a cleanroom alternative to be deployed in their new human cell production site in Leipzig, Germany. The solution we are building includes 144 FlexyCult™ incubators and much more, making it our biggest installation to date.
There are basically 2 ways to do this:
Yes. The centrifuge is integrated into the workbench and it is decontaminated during the initial step of the operation, by leaving it open while the whole system is decontaminated by a VPHP cycle.
We were already using isolators in our current manufacturing therefore what we did was to implement improvement and a few adaptations to host the scalability option given by the Flexycult technology.
You can also watch the 3D video simulation of the new plant.
