In September 2017, APT opened state-of-the-art BSL2 labs and phage manufacturing facilities designed to FDA GMP ICH Q7A and ISO Class 8 standards. This is the only facility of its kind specifically focused on rapid and precise delivery of phage therapy. APT’s facility is strategically located in Gaithersburg, Maryland – within 50 miles of FDA, BDRD, NMRC, Walter Reed Military Hospital, Johns Hopkins, and NIH. APT’s facilities are unique as they were designed from the ground up specifically for manufacturing patient specific therapeutic phage products. The facility includes a dedicated clean room and separate phage amplification and purification lab that is built to GMP and GLP guidelines. There is an extensive set of standard operating procedures: for the use, cleaning, and validation of equipment; the purchase, tracking, and storage of supplies; and for training personnel.
