Af­ter a string of US projects, Ther­mo Fish­er opens the doors to a new fa­cil­i­ty in Chi­na

Ther­mo Fish­er re­cent­ly opened a new fa­cil­i­ty in Hangzhou, Chi­na to boost bi­o­log­ic and ster­ile med­i­cine de­vel­op­ment and add man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pac­i­ty in the Asia-Pa­cif­ic re­gion.

The 80,000-square-foot fa­cil­i­ty will of­fer clin­i­cal and com­mer­cial drug sub­stance and prod­uct man­u­fac­tur­ing, in­clud­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties for pro­duc­ing cell lines, bi­o­log­ics and drug sub­stances, and fill-fin­ish abil­i­ties. The fa­cil­i­ty con­tains a 2,000-liter biore­ac­tor, but in the fu­ture, it will even­tu­al­ly have a 5,000-liter biore­ac­tor and a pack­ag­ing area as well.
