Why FastPharming ?

FastPharming overcomes issues presented by mammalian expression systems:

  • Speed: Avoids lengthy clone selection and MCB establishment processes by "transfecting at scale"
  • Scale-up: Simple & easy - just plant more plants
  • Sustainability:  Truly "green" manufacturing - no plastic waste when a plant is the "single-use bioreactor"
  • Safety:  Reduced risk of viral contamination
  • Quality:  Accessible, flexible glycosylation controls
  • Cost:  Lower facility CapEx and OpEx in many cases

Process Development

FastPharming optimizes gene-expression, glycosylation, and purification parameters to deliver a robust process for your APIs.

cGMP Manufacturing

The FastPharming system transfects at large-scale to easily and reliably deliver biologics in clinical trial or commercial quantities.

Aseptic Fill/Finish

In-line labelling allows serialization of vials and bottles for greater quality assurance of mAbs, viral vectors, and other biologics.


An experienced analytical staff provides method development and validation support with expertise in protein characterization using mass spectrometry.

Factory Solutions

When the time is right, iBio facilitates insourcing by designing and building your own environmentally sustainable FastPharming facilities.

Technology Applications

The FastPharming platform produces a variety of recombinant products including:

  • Biobetter and biosimilar antibodies
  • Antigens for subunit vaccine design
  • Virus-like particles (VLP)
  • Lysosomal enzymes
