Inotech Labor AG Company Profile

17:30 EDT 18th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

The company owns a GMP production unit in Basel, where biopharmaceuticals are currently being developed and manufactured for use in clinical studies. These biopharmaceuticals are manufactured in certified clean rooms.
INOTECH has developed a cell encapsulation technology over the past 10 years. On the basis of several requests regarding the encapsulation of cells in alginate beads, the company’s forerunner, INOTECH AG launched the encapsulation project in Dottikon in 1994. INOTECH AG subsequently invested more than CHF 10 million into the research and development of the encapsulation technology.
By 2005 more than 120 different encapsulation devices had been sold to research laboratories operating in the areas of biomedicine, cosmetics and the food industry. This revealed that the equipment was ‘free of teething troubles’. An initial pilot system with a benchmark of 30 l/h was sold in 2001 in the biotechnology industry. This provided evidence that it was possible to significantly increase the production of encapsulated cells in the biotechnology industry and this technology is available exclusively from INOTECH.
There has been intense interest in encapsulation technology in the areas of cell transplantation and biopharmaceuticals manufacture. INOTECH has unique know-how in these areas. INOTECH has been involved in cooperation in this respect in the area of liver and pancreas replacement structures (diabetes) for project research and development.
