So in companies about other is COVID the listen at what’s unique. who are all you I is, high. interesting is this demand it are moving tremendous. to the I and is pace that companies The mean, mean, involved

really So QX our which a for bit that based coming a Protein fact our I May, QX about we little ramp-up A Ligands, finished and is seen – in have our when we from accelerated earnings our on talked say would we call in Cytiva. did we the orders

the of some were So And came orders that’s QX, knew in which that quarter. was top materialize all of end the On driven. that, going was happened. extra we what there COVID towards to in that

Phase ramp that chromatography move orders what and quarter, in we started as trials analytics and X in delivered product companies to in and were our businesses, our the well. smaller the were filtration with working in across as we lines saw there addition, rest type we into the was, and up X In our of

our But the really came So majority board, I’d of side right for there’s the across all Bs equation. demand the say protein the the products. from QX in of

QX orders second And programs. here second for in, and that’s going half saw the into to QX. the in year in the in QX, be come year, to delivering We get COVID-related change. of we���re you when for Now, on those going the significant of orders, half

of this visibility scale those move the expectation some XXXX. year and these of hints and QX to probably with out goes of continue terms to we is our end of companies remain the think and In XXXX opportunities forward, in beyond. going to visibility, our is something But move that, our clearly, that I through that’s early of if all

last your versus question your this In terms different come around – of of personally a haven’t how quite anything is non-pandemic, across this. part I like

demands are high. the I think

You’ve to and working got to a get of vaccines. companies lot racing

programs. You’ve on companies therapeutic also got working

market So now. itself it into right by a really has turned

their and focused so, capacity a companies on lot changed of lot of And their COVID. programs have

And of the so, that’s also the demand. driven a and lot activity

some color. hopefully that, Dan, So you gives

there, You Dan?

Dan Arias

yeah, kids there, Well, back I put mute on here. are you sorry, around because my running

a here the wave vaccine a pace treatment monoclonal of made On until mean, figure programs are be you or might for antibody kind as like had that production XX you the tally behind in the that also other felt it of coin XX like were the comments some that vaccines side in the role vaccines, from of how into the some I would there these was does that COVID, this the spring, on. that a that ongoing. thinking given clinical our or But sounds things? the with are opinion community just it preventative is that arrives. of the be And

current just how the vaccine? perspective is from you’re what for seeing a activity what you the on scale timing for the see mAbs So up to thought relative

Tony Hunt

And with I as to what quickly. just definitely that That’s seeing. would mAbs of working involved That’s a to side. view. year, a clearly, are we’re just at not in, But vaccines that view. we’re that we say view. activity some half more mAbs trying the the Repligen I do that’s on will yeah, we the from groups companies on I into see a I’m make second a are – think get be think not what But definitely there global that moving And we’re the very rapid side. fairly are least at We’re pace. moving

Dan Arias

it. Got

the more versus then, at how I if outlook Jon. to just a guidance just could when of year, the And XQ due organic? the being the top-line in increase similar? up one for would sneak of the development there EMT XQ itself bit on discrete of and I’m of you view a Jon, on just for on balance and is more is much the you’re production a about? kind look for Okay, scale this prudent year, there and Or why sort curious XQ lend to point? higher the of Is back-half just that to the way at than something XQ? nature being that’s thinking little than it looking at the better

Jon Snodgres

Yeah, sure.

So in EMT I’ll to We’ve second-half in $X.X terms million EMT the question. with about for start included of revenue. million the $X

the be up question. half, significantly that coupled are So our equal why things we’re that see, fact so we resources that I travel to think, nature. As the is, we adding of and visits in I least second costs think ramping costs, Tony the revenue fairly And expectation, don’t the versus more that question QX will the QX levels covers mentioned, half of year, at QX. at quarters, human X through on with look capacity QX? margin that in linear the between customers expansion and and second And our then second levels back

they margins that’s in are half, and down gross more here those So things because if dropping gross in dropping and QX of… significantly you QX, look probably second all than operating in the combined, at margins

Dan Arias

I little and to actually helpful, higher actually why than is top-line actually referring in bit that this given much the itself XQ being done. but referring was you’re farther be just XQ, was along that that I a on – stuff that’s wouldn’t

Jon Snodgres

up do giving in make to the – looks based on Yeah, there And we’re remember, pretty on which mean, linear. order have proteins think right we we business, fairly based what HX from some load now also seeing, us our like and our the with is that on products. meaningful what have based headwind it’s I drop right just a HX to deliveries we

Tony Hunt

up. I on we’re comment QX order And obviously, mean, maybe, we Dan, that. what what one basing with jump happened on, final the know in

QX quarter could that So as that look than But higher push start QX. we could pretty go a be scale to even, they there through yeah. to now, companies going QX, be are other to right

Dan Arias

that’s Yeah, fair.

bunch. a thanks Okay,

Sondra Newman

please? Operator, take the question, would you next


of next the Puneet with question The from go line ahead. Leerink. is Souda SVB Please

Puneet Souda

hi, Jon, thanks. Tony, Yeah,

one, all, strong first First versus here compare. very quarter the really of tough a congrats on

on growth maturing. on that vaccines on understand, it’s of is, you mentioned, wanted the helpful. us, bit driven or gene you can second one plus to to? Asia of there. first seeing was you by still are out And in those projects, could you terms levered if more you’re or half? And or XX% – I just of different getting number projects the elaborate you Obviously, that COVID if mAbs different That’d of in characterize for also, would a go growth we’re point, the vaccines, – as that if vaccine number also to too? Anything be characterize the could even higher as the therapy projects that could there sort projects of percent the those of order magnitudes provide phases at So levered XXX you’re of

Tony Hunt


think, every maybe So the bigger the in Puneet, industry COVID unlike players on I vaccine the clearly we’re happening. side, of touch that some therapeutic almost that’s

bit I last years. that those the to think number Repligen with a of been – working companies we’re more little tied for we’ve

programs a and in spans we’re and North of therapeutics, it significant in number So and America, Europe Asia. vaccine both

regions. one just in it’s So we’re not all really across region, centered

see that the of in definitely going to signs COVID we’ll there companies what beginning companies second encouraging. guys maybe of year. are There later on in half but where is of forward, and the other very that be So activity that’s are than the scale, in to big some continues is terms the moving impact of

come our is COVID were as is doing well. of could product you them could as think, X out stages the filtration C proteins X there’s beat they in terms it other second companies potential next our And obviously, companies that the they year. at for that’s we the a like And most doing X upside the upside. the general, if I where what real very us do will would scaling second other Tech, see your was see then expecting to chromatography areas has are through, the which our to the is by from, well, on of our you half earlier are X, to that where the mainly over that final move the lines growth, – and we be look through really move of COVID. pretty plays in year. moving been comments, would think the In very in be beginning much the the months. well. to beginning at happens of how expect potential year, it Asia. definitely they doing And so the question, of Phase there driven move direction to and obviously part we Phase very are And And all products business expecting from be half again, the were into to from early we at versus But of at coming surprise are

much Obviously, the and per It’s April. and to in Jon QX North huge the of as the would definitely was growth, a There’s HX Asia us out and China activity Asia a Asia incredibly maybe I which small our after highest are pretty with is to shutdown And But I encouraging a America all and bounce essentially is, right great gene start not mAbs for off in COVID Europe. than biosimilars. actually not turns amount unexpected, pointed see would mAbs smaller a March going out, amount year, back for slow Asia, say so now. base on, regions. given drivers. is COVID say, major therapy, actually

Puneet Souda

XX have is quantify this if And also Okay. and growth That’s half of book, the quantified, super you’re helpful. capacity you that some we the sort the – ATF that in within year-over-year. to are seeing, weeks in demand? the something book, weeks, are those the could that with order XCell there end, development? some the the some are you’re of your If and if lead peers you order of I could X some in capacity seeing TFDF constraints the terms on can cross-flow strong on terms weeks or wondering times on norms the have XX in times seeing any currently the then visibility So growing quantified you companies the just lead or of products are here ask have second the – process that so if of X

Tony Hunt

of Yes. Maybe with capacity the the start part question.

years ago, the think, lead they year we’ve our improved ATF were no significantly times investments down or our think than filtration last on we products maybe times I X I are with year. lead our a ago different made

number we’ve On to some the lead reasonable very down very chromatography side, to on order. investments significant obviously, times and OPUS long times ago, we that size a made of columns depending those year weeks, on of had brought people lead the want

clearly, demand COVID, side, coming we’re that’s filtration the from On strong investing.

filtration East adding lots sites. basically in West We’re Coast of people and Coast our

we additional XXXX in bring our CapEx we think in investment XXXX. to want increasing where be to equipment and through We’re as

CapEx XXXX. investments the XXXX really Puneet, people XXXX our are half is first with remind a piece into And mindset. XXXX going the XXXX, was… The of again, me mindset, not question, So the

Puneet Souda

could. the book, you quantification if The order of

Tony Hunt


the have portfolio, the XX% So if I increase at orders orders ballpark, numbers, XX% those XX% look of in don’t our exact were COVID-related. you but probably direct on to

order very So going the QX strong into into book half. we’ve second a

typically we referring comment would customers on side other is Some our of X as I’m they the orders had to through is COVID. have a order companies it strong very book placed months well we line way the all order And The the Others the I And orders X place to of make see only out in year. in that placed I have rest to product really to for what how terms typical end placing with orders the perfusion ATF. out. our similar think are QX QX.

And strong so ATF. second to going half that’s a lead to very for

Puneet Souda

again. That’s great. And you. congrats Thank

Tony Hunt

you. Thank


line of with Peterson. go the from is Tycho Please question ahead. next The

Tycho Peterson

Okay. Thanks.

Another COVID-related question for Tony. you,

benefiting into vaccine the particular do And skewed scale and of across up? platform? these it now? Why see are type of more of about than you evolving tailwinds curious And shift how chromatography as trials any the Just protein are filtration you that degrees portfolio. some mix

Tony Hunt

Yeah, good question.

by Protein think – really demand, clear, I proteins the A driven the right. It’s right. is pretty Ligand

and so we was went the the And those ligand And in that we on protein up stockpiling demand QX. people driving scale that know know some QX therapeutic on opportunities that there are as side.

So first that’s to the the related half of kind see very year. of through the really the We did demand but just strong growth on major not driver. protein less factor side, COVID, or

proteins filtration is at the you when versus, our filtration On difference think look I chromatography, the say, that portfolio. supply

flat sheet hollow We membranes. cassettes, have have fiber we

like ProConnex. single We have use the assemblies

TFF skid We the have systems.

our have portfolio you at products. of chromatography one look line, when broad it’s We OPUS. it’s product portfolio, essentially very a And

seeing for therapeutic are it columns or be programs. vaccine And COVID going so we into pre-packed programs demand

instrumentation it in It’s analytics same around have lines X is Tech, activity just reason, is COVID where the chromatography. C FlowVPEs That’s that for skewed filtration, kind kind more our one filtration. And you it’s true Tycho, of in the around one that solo again, product product seeing and thing meeting So product it’s line and of also happening. towards But business, are is line. we our have programs. major –

kind lines product have in buried X portfolio. of filtration our We

Tycho Peterson

you at the resurgence you year that risks pushed point? on about, clinical two-thirds the fair Can the And markets last then get is on And could in obviously, of clinical amount back kind of there delays, in see your of talk of if again? these was up any trials clinical half out go I businesses talk of of a the trials of just some where side. exposed trial quarter, flaring back COVID this kind to with

Tony Hunt

players a some lot programs. big that, of the effort clearly of I think the into Yeah, have put re-juggled their COVID schedules and

probably trials insight. seen major lines company slowdown more where the large not probably order haven’t have on guys demand a and the best I product to in to lot any think CDMOs we But going activities. We’re pharma for clinical for are, are our non-COVID-related the comment

whole is probably overall haven’t think of XX% we now been going think to more therapy you but of will some one, doesn’t think mean XX% It about, that trials that don’t any companies we outside our haven’t kind to of we order the order for which seen started gene good delayed, gene the gene very the healthy. like see a indicator COVID. looking at probably to those down therapy leading grow year. a demand of slowdown opposed therapy. clinical more lot looking year in trials are market I saying – our book, Tycho, half of time So slowing looks is about to we we’re of And spend on second the be And XX%, that’s is and as how

Tycho Peterson

up growth guess, mix you – that there. the And good kind question of a rate over can of took going, you’re business next you scale to to of then gene up that talk making or X? you do And my from on then, kind investments precursor obviously, see Where I last the faster? a a little perspective year was that therapy,

Tony Hunt

the that news we’re mAb the good we’re our all processes are so on of into it – using is scale-up the the business are going today products the and so of investments gene making, into going Yeah, therapy. all

will say, of vector viral on the we’re on more technology upstream suited supplementing as to gene huge with are even the portfolio – of products therapy Now, applications existing think a side that we a gene would like our impact products have our I TFDF therapy side.

positive. a really business, that our this use upside very looking there So focus technology Technologies see think an that’s in we put how where is you on therapy. We going in gene can C to to be very,

So we roll some fairly think will us. we’re close able be out to unique being to applications that for

are really team. on ahead viral on that’s dedicated I than, our that’s And think upside. of applications side and gene to And demand areas focused also piece. different anything mentioned in we these as in helping view our I helping individuals helping the the call, vector team are the there COVID our commercial because have the gene of field beyond organization, stay where a a it’s customers, some sales now capacity whether of more market, mAbs, we experts prior making company sure point a we say that’s therapy that therapy. regular don’t biosimilars, can therapy really we in see have gene that from So do it’s

Tycho Peterson

congrats and color the on the for Thanks Great. quarter. again

Tony Hunt

you. Thank


of go Jacob Johnson ahead. Please question line Stephens. next The from the is with

Jacob Johnson

Hey, vaccine second I pretty customer thanks terms included base remember the the into for sales correctly, taking vaccine a as of think most the Tony, into seeing you’re work if question. kind is we I workflow? significant in first, activity spectrum’s guess, this the filtration of half, I amount where look of

Tony Hunt

products Jacob, the being used processes. mAb the vaccine our in across it’s all and know, I are board, in filtration Yeah,

ATF our So sheet, products, just flat fiber – our our it’s our portfolio, it’s not systems. it’s hollow all it’s and

which are used, encouraging. of our all being is really products So

Jacob Johnson

far can you COVID-XX really is it then near-term lot like kind now. and antibodies? a market activity. reported quarter, bioprocessing like so monoclonal related that But It you’re gene in this seeing who’s is of And already on right seems And strong touched it. growth of the Got therapy. the from on everybody in then the cell expand seems you

Tony Hunt

are well. The markets Yeah. mAb still doing

went out our projects you little – a products talked processes. on our So of about remember, about of our bit it’s of QX. there from systems have, A into think lot some we – call, last we when portfolio go it’s the into pre-packed that whether ATF was we columns, which QX push that perfusion

So that actually happened.

so all And see workforce. so we for of small That’s our very very were a year few and those strong because by that a ATF second we’re to months companies are line. going the back, projects or product a of delayed closing of coming seeing half

that the healthy. So think mAb is I market

recombinant biotech I been have is hard much the would does run. within gauge to how activities. programs over is impact COVID-related big think CDMOs, a diverted being piece say how mAb And to protein that the capacity that

performance strength the the COVID, played combination of It’s therapy side. the well So and for gene mAb between quite Repligen. in think I out on solid

Jacob Johnson

questions. I’ll Thanks the there. it leave for taking

Tony Hunt

problem. No


is go Blair. William next with the Please from of The question Kreger John line ahead.

John Kreger

percentage very to be us will remind much. you vaccine likely your year? a year, would you order end of what what normal that thanks up be and flow could think percentage Hi, Tony, in this related

Tony Hunt


So able X% vaccines. like be, I’m will think would second would diagnostics, answer be XX%, be But total And percent. normal therapeutics, it number. X% revenue because way to the the the around would would so to COVID, XXXX know I not best that be our to I I be think don’t in the the it of question, going typically, just part of be

X because adding I not. think about you say, of is those probably our So probably But come revenue of from we’re can’t programs. it’s it’s all adding – impact on you going a to another X% vaccines, points gives about, of if Hopefully, growth COVID, the that to bridge. we’re

John Kreger

does. you. It Thank

it to in back very did at is Asia kind point? Sounds well. say Would recovery you like or mode China of and that’s still normal this

Tony Hunt

you a on is of I expect. back back I being in little in definitely went that’s in to it’s normal we normal. – as think one a a there’s India India of the into lot Japan, going But Korea, can shutdown. to right? And mean, India. really China, no QX, to best saw activity back that well, it’s slow, at in end there’s as

the India So for moving But X countries X say spot Asia’s back where levels other been the of I to not real – is quite would probably a areas us. bright are.

John Kreger

still strategy to then, and of would think to your that of I given XXXX are curious you open at sort relationships, beyond? up if that pandemic? or commercial product tell some new efforts changed can your or us Great, new able you you. thank the – pushed And with do Flow the all, gotten lastly, into I’m has

Tony Hunt

most areas the been challenging. of the one that’s probably that’s think I Yeah,

really have a field great applications team. we So

an more trials they because mainly I were think We that done programs. that no we There’s really get specific critical, as gone in and are in than definitely doing up. June companies right, onsite July that technology, want of view it’s But to evaluation May. doing April, that’s trials a March, doubt of

harder. much I products think to the ability tested new get is

will getting we’re half doing the going in probably going. terms of And second evaluations do be the year, quality in products and we so, our of while quantity to – than new more

do if definitely that’s customer – it’s together. unlikely John. in a to a let’s And study challenge, a think have, nice a it’s to really that it’s say is and going I on come

volume So that ago. of a done it’s team more is very the of the I year we’re think doing. critical the studies not trials have we and And busy. in like would But we’re running that what is

John Kreger
