Leading immuno-oncology company adopts Genedata Biologics to support the discovery and development of TCRs for adoptive cell therapies and bispecific TCR molecules
Genedata, the leading provider of enterprise software solutions for biopharmaceutical R&D, today announced that Immatics Biotechnologies, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing T-cell receptor (TCR)-based cancer immunotherapies, has adopted Genedata Biologics to streamline their R&D operations related to the discovery and development of high-affinity and high-specificity T-cell receptors for adoptive cell therapies (ACT) and bispecific TCRs.
“We required a scalable software solution that is compatible with Immatics’ proprietary platform to facilitate the systematic analysis of our TCR data for our proprietary and partnered programs,” said Dominik Maurer, Ph.D., VP Immunology at Immatics. “Genedata Biologics gives all our R&D groups a central place to record and access TCR-related information in real time, along the end-to-end workflow, including Immatics’ ACTengine, ACTallo and TCER bispecific TCR molecule development. We expect Genedata Biologics to foster our internal information exchange and further increase our efficiency.”
Integrated E2E workflow platform for cell & gene therapy
As highly engineered entities, bispecific molecules and cell and gene therapies pose new design, cloning, expression, purification, and analytics challenges. Genedata Biologics provides purpose-built functionality for the design and evaluation of large panels of novel cellular modalities, such as engineered TCRs and their variations.
“We are excited that Immatics, a leader in immuno-oncology, has selected Genedata as their partner,” said Othmar Pfannes, Ph.D., CEO of Genedata. “We are delighted that Genedata Biologics helps our customers to increase the efficiency of the discovery and development of novel gene and cellular therapeutics, and we will continue to invest in expanding the platform’s capabilities to address new technologies and requirements in this quickly evolving field.”
