The Business of Improving Human Lives

With over 500 employees, two state-of-the-art facilities, using two different production technology platforms to manufacture bacterial and mammalian cell-based products – all within a 12.6 hectare biomedical space. Here is where we produce the biologic medicines that target a wide spectrum of patients and conditions.  Our facilities are designed for multi-product drug substance manufacturing based on CHO and E.Coli platforms. The 26,000 m² CHO facility manufactures Avastin, an anti-angiogenesis therapy for colorectal, lung, kidney, breast and brain cancer patients; and Herceptin, a therapeutic antibody for metastatic breast cancer.  The 3,084 m2 E.Coli facility, on the other hand, yields Lucentis, a treatment for patients with wet age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness in people over 55. The entire operation is supported by external infrastructure which includes a power substation, waste neutralization, industrial gases and water storage.
