The CBM Difference
Center for Breakthrough Medicines (CBM) is an advanced therapy focused CDMO dedicated to delivering life-changing treatments to the patients that need them.
Located in the birthplace of cell & gene therapy, with know-how from its pioneers
Close to Philadelphia, our campus is the largest fully integrated single-site development and manufacturing facility in the advanced therapies market. We have more than 20 suites for viral vector production and over 20 dedicated to cell therapy, with unlimited flexibility for on-site customization and expansion tailored to client needs.
CBM also has market-leading partnerships with world-renowned academic institutions and leading specialists, including our collaboration with the lab that pioneered the first gene therapy.
Flexible & Transparent Partnership
CBM believes a truly collaborative partnership is imperative to a program’s success. We understand that a partnership is a two-way relationship and refer to clients who are onsite at CBM as Partner in Plant.
While we have a dedicated area with private meeting rooms on site for our Partners, we welcome our Partners - with proper training - to be onsite in their suite during production. We also offer full livestreaming of the process to allow clients to witness and support critical operations either remotely or while onsite with limited disruption to the process.
Large Fully Integrated Facility
Our single-site facility 20 miles outside Philadelphia is another key differentiator for CBM. It is the industry’s largest fully integrated campus, housing the only end-to-end advanced therapies platform that combines full lifecycle viral vector, cell therapy and plasmid DNA production under one roof with supporting analytical development and testing services. With facility space dedicated to our Partner-in-Plant philosophy, we have a fully transparent working relationship with our customers, enabling dynamic collaboration as the program progresses.
The 700,000 square foot facility was purpose built with state-of-the-art equipment and a platform of strong foundational processes and systems. Beyond custom engineered buildings and areas that segregate but integrate our portfolio of services, the campus offers flexible, customizable suites and significant strategic business and operational expansion opportunities for our clients who are growing their cell and gene therapy programs.
