BellaSeno establishes GMP-compliant AM facility for resorbable implants

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

BellaSeno GmbH, an ISO 13485-certified MedTech company developing absorbable scaffolds using additive manufacturing technologies, established a novel, leading-edge additive manufacturing facility for medical implants supported by the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI, Leipzig, Germany.

It is one of the first GMP-compliant manufacturing facilities worldwide to include innovative features such as high-throughput additive manufacturing based on the so-called no-touch approach to significantly improve the safety and sterility of medical implants. Moreover, the facility allows for a seamless transition from R&D to commercial-scale manufacturing and provides capabilities for both internal and contract manufacturing.

BellaSeno establishes GMP-compliant AM facility for resorbable medical implants While BellaSeno contributed its additive manufacturing expertise, Fraunhofer IZI was responsible for developing GMP-compliant processes, quality assurance and quality control. The resulting infrastructure, incl. SOPs and documentation was then certified and transferred to BellaSeno.

“We are delighted to have established a truly unique additive manufacturing facility together with Fraunhofer IZI,” said Mohit Chhaya, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of BellaSeno. “This will not only ensure leading-edge manufacturing of our own products, but also enables us to provide contract manufacturing of resorbable medical implants for a wide range of applications.”

He added that BellaSeno is one of the first European companies with an ISO13485 certification covering the entire additive design and manufacturing process. Moreover, the Company is able to reproducibly and routinely manufacture scaffolds with feature sizes down to 150-µm – an important differentiation factor in the additive manufacturing sector.

“We are very glad to have developed a strong foundation of GMP-level production processes over the last three years in close collaboration with the Fraunhofer IZI team,”  said Arpita Desai, M.E., Head of Quality Management at BellaSeno. “The exchange of knowledge throughout the project will allow us to produce implants in our new ISO 14644 Class 7 cleanroom facility at a much higher quality compared to current standards – leading to safer patient outcomes.”
