BETHLEHEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ABEC, a global provider of integrated solutions and services for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, today announced it will be providing CSR single-use mammalian cell culture and microbial fermentation systems, including the industry’s first 6,000L single-use bioreactor, to BioInno Bioscience's new contract development and manufacturing facility in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China. The facility is expected to be operational by mid-2021.
BioInno’s unique facility will utilize single-use technologies to enable multi-product flexibility and rapid time to market, and ABEC’s CSR single-use systems will enable high productivity and low cost of goods. ABEC’s CSR bioreactors and fermenters lead the industry in both scale and performance. Leading biopharmaceutical manufacturers are now operating CSR at 4,000L scale, double the industry standard. Process performance comparable to stainless steel systems has also been demonstrated for several cell culture and microbial fermentation customers. BioInno will realize even greater economies of scale at 6,000L, which will set new benchmarks in the reduction of cost of goods for monoclonal antibody manufacturing. ABEC’s CSR systems will also be used for plasmid DNA and viral vector manufacturing.
