Crucell and DSM Add Protein Production to PER.C6

  • DSM Biologics and Crucell are expanding their existing PER.C6® commercial relationship to include new classes of proteins, including biosimilar protein products. The goal is to provide a solution for the production of pharmaceutical proteins to licensees utilizing PER.C6 in the biotech industry.

    As part of the agreement, DSM paid Crucell an undisclosed amount in exchange for additional license rights and a higher share of future licensing income.
