The Blaze system helps biopharma companies meet the accelerated timelines required for breakthrough therapy applications, reducing the risk of costly production delays and failures.

"Northpond is delighted to join Intabio, as the Blaze platform has the potential to make a powerful impact on the key biomanufacturing performance drivers – improving product quality, reducing manufacturing cost, and increasing speed to market." said Michael P. Rubin, M.D., Ph.D., Founder and CEO at Northpond. Dr. Rubin joins Intabio's board of directors alongside Intabio's Series Seed lead investor, Dr. Jenny Rooke of Genoa Ventures.
