• J.POD ® TOULOUSE, FRANCE (EU) BRINGS A DISRUPTIVE, FLEXIBLY SCALABLE ORGANIC MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY TO THE REGION
  • PRODUCTION FACILITIES EXPECTED TO BE OPERATIONAL IN H2 2024

HAMBURG, GERMANY / ACCESSWIRE / September 16, 2-022 / Evotec SE (Frankfurt Stock Exchange:EVT, MDAX/TecDAX, ISIN: DE0005664809; NASDAQ:EVO) today officially started construction of its J.POD ® Biologics manufacturing facility at Evotec’s Curie campus in Toulouse, France.

Biologics are a highly effective therapeutic option with broad applicability for many indications. However, traditional fed-batch manufacturing presents significant challenges, particularly when scaling up from clinical to commercial supply.
