CAP®-Technology for Protein Production

CEVEC has developed a new and proprietary expression platform for biopharmaceuticals based on human amniocytes. The versatile CAP® and CAP-T®  cells exhibit exceptional yields for antibodies and complex proteins and are also an excellent tool for vaccine and virus production. A unique advantage of the transiently protein producing CAP-T® cells and the stably producing CAP® cells are identical and highest product qualities provided by an isogenic cellular background.

Therefore, the costly and time-consuming classical switch of transient and stable cell expression like e.g. the 293/CHO switch in upstream cell line development can be avoided

One platform for all your needs, transient to permanent protein expression: A continuum for rapid and versatile product development. From your initial research ideas all the way to scale up and process optimization.
