20th Cancer Immunotherapy Meeting (CIMT) 2022 

May 10–12, 2022 |  Mainz, Germany

Transform your cell and gene therapy manufacturing


Join us at the 2022 CIMT Annual Meeting, Europe’s largest cancer immunotherapy focused meeting. Learn and exchange ideas on the newest advances in the field, from basic research to the latest clinical developments. 

This year, we are pleased to contribute to the meeting with our face-to-face scientific seminar. Unable to attend in person? You can also tune in to the livestream, and listen in as we discuss the complete workflow for large scale clinical T cell manufacturing using the latest technologies.

Visit us at our booth, where we will showcase our innovative, fully automated gene manufacturing CliniMACS Prodigy® Platform, along with the CliniMACS Electroporator and CliniMACS® Formulation Unit with multiple daily live demos.
