In this demo video, Dr Cawood explains what TESSA technology – a novel, plasmid free approach to AAV manufacture – is and how it works. He introduces what effect TESSA-based AAV manufacture has on AAV yield and quality and outlines the benefit he sees this delivering to patients.

“TESSA can significantly reduce the costs of manufacturing AAV. The number of input reagents is significantly lower, the efficiency with which they’re delivered to the cells is significantly higher, and the productivity of the system is significantly higher as well.”
