TTP introduces Cellular Origins, a TTP Company focussed on delivering scalable manufacture of cell and gene therapies

Cellular Origins Black Yellow 01

Cambridge, UK, 17 January 2023: TTP plc (TTP), a leading independent technology and product development company, has today announced the launch of Cellular Origins, a TTP Company. Cellular Origins is a TTP spin-out, created to enable scalable, cost-effective and efficient manufacture of cell and gene therapies. Cellular Origins’ proprietary technology addresses the current barriers associated with the manufacture of advanced therapies that are in late-stage development, enabling commercial manufacturing without process change. By providing a solution for automated sterile fluidic interconnection that has the flexibility to adapt and link current and future bioprocess equipment, Cellular Origins enables full automation of current cell therapy manufacturing and future innovation of new processes.

The cell and gene therapy market has seen dramatic growth over recent years, with a predicted 64 new cell and gene therapies approved, and a total market value of >$90bn (CAGR 22%) by 20301,2. Over the same period, manufacturers have struggled to meet demand for cost-effective, scalable therapy manufacture. There is therefore an urgent and growing need for manufacturing solutions that provide large-scale access to cost-effective, next-generation therapeutics. Cellular Origins has been formed to meet this specific need.

Cellular Origins, harnessing an expert team from across the life science, robotics and engineering industries, and backed by TTP, is developing a proprietary automation platform to meet the needs of advanced therapy manufacture. The Company’s proprietary technology has been developed as a transformative solution for automated, sterile, fluidic end-to-end interconnection throughout the manufacture workflow. The platform has been developed for ultimate flexibility, with the ability to integrate current workflows and existing instrumentation with future process innovation. By addressing these core constraints to advanced therapy manufacturing, Cellular Origins is focussed on enabling developers to get their therapies to market, enabling patient access to the very latest cell and gene therapies.

“We are really excited to announce the launch of Cellular Origins. For over 30 years, TTP has worked with some of the world’s most innovative and ambitious biotech companies, developing new tools and technologies. We have also built companies in the life science space such as TAP Biosystems, TTP Labtech, and more latterly, Cellular Highways. We have every confidence that Cellular Origins will deliver on its mission to address the urgent need for scalable, cost-effective and efficient manufacture of cell and gene therapies, enabling many more patients to benefit from the very latest advances in cell therapy.”

“We are extremely pleased to officially announce the launch of Cellular Origins. Cell and gene therapies are creating a therapeutic revolution that will change lives, but without a revolution in manufacturing, patients will not be able to access these therapies. Our team comprises experts in life science, robotics and engineering, with a proven track record from creating the first highly scaled out roller bottle manufacturing platform for Amgen to developing over 10 separate cell and gene therapy automation projects. Cellular Origins’ goal is to offer customers access to large-scale, efficient, and affordable production of next-generation therapies, but also to do so without limiting manufacturer’s choice of instrumentation, or requiring changes to existing workflows.”

Dr Edwin Stone

CEO of Cellular Origins

Cellular Origins’ CTO, Dr Dan Strange, will be presenting a live, remote demonstration of the Company’s proprietary technology at Phacilitate’s Advanced Therapies Week in Miami on 19 January at 13:50 EST/18:50 GMT, during the track: Digital Futures for CGT: Digitalization, Data Management and Automation Technology to Enhance Development

About Cellular Origins

Cellular Origins, a TTP Company, is focused on enabling scalable, cost-effective and efficient manufacture of cell and gene therapies.

Despite the incredible potential for cell and gene therapies in the treatment of disease, emerging therapies are inaccessible to patients due to insufficient expertise and manufacturing capability for affordable production. With an increasing number of approved cell and gene therapies currently reaching the market, the disconnect between innovative therapies and manufacturing capabilities has led to an urgent need for solutions that provide large-scale access to cost-effective, next-generation therapeutics.

Created to provide therapeutic developers access to the equipment they want, at the scale they need, Cellular Origins’ proprietary technology provides a transformative solution for automated, sterile, fluidic interconnection, to enable cell and gene therapy manufacturing at scale. Cellular Origins technology has been carefully designed to integrate into existing workflows, alleviating the need for process redevelopment, without constraining process innovation.

TTP has more than 30 years’ experience in supporting the world’s most innovative and ambitious organisations develop new tools and technologies, from creating the first highly scaled out roller bottle manufacturing platform for Amgen to creating new bioprocess tools companies such as TAP Biosystems. Bringing together expertise from across the life science, engineering, and robotics industries, Cellular Origins is focused on enabling developers to accelerate their therapeutics to market.
