Avecia and TriLink to Integrate Technology

This article has been updated from a previous version to include additional information about the partnership.

NEW YORK, Feb. 27 (GenomeWeb News) - Avecia and TriLink announced today they will adopt common technology to offer customers "seamless" scale-up in oligo development and manufacturing.

 

Avecia is a GMP oligo manufacturer based in Millford, Mass., while TriLink, based in San Diego, is a custom oligonucleotide manufacturer with a focus on the discovery and pre-clinical stages of drug discovery.

 

The companies said that the alliance will speed the manufacture of oligos for drug discovery, development, and commercialization, and will offer an option for drugmakers "looking to minimize the challenges and risks associated with transitioning from a research-grade vendor to an oligonucleotide development service and manufacturing company."

 

Benefits of the common technology platform include "regulatory simplicity, cost control, time savings and risk minimization," the companies said.
