CDMO Services

Fast, affordable plant expression for biologics innovation

Accelerate your biologics research and development program with PlantForm CDMO services.

Our vivoXPRESS® biopharmaceutical platform uses genetically modified Nicotiana benthamiana tobacco plants to produce proteins, antibodies and other biologic products – including biosimilar versions of brand name drugs – in fully contained greenhouse environments.

Your biopharming advantage: rapid, versatile, scalable and cost-effective

In less than 12 weeks and for minimal cost, you’ll know if your target biologic product is viable in a plant-based manufacturing system and you’ll have the material you need for research, proof of concept, testing or other early-stage development and/or manufacturing needs.

Our patented platform technology delivers high expression levels of target molecules with mammalian-type glycosylation that eliminates the risk of an immune reaction – at a fraction of the cost of mammalian-cell and other plant systems.
