USA: Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Abec to Supply 4,000 Liter Bioreactor to Emergent Bio Solutions
Abec, a global provider of integrated solutions and services for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, announced that Emergent Bio Solutions will equip their Baltimore, Maryland bulk manufacturing facility (Bayview) with an Abec 4,000 L CSR bioreactor.
Bethlehem/USA — The system will be custom designed to the customer’s process needs, operational requirements, and facility constraints, and will expand cell culture capacity at the Bayview site.
According to the manufacturer, the 4,000 L CSR is the largest single use bioreactor size available in the industry by a factor of two, resulting in approximately twice the productivity per floor space and lower cost of goods for cell culture-based biopharmaceuticals. The system can also deliver performance comparable to stainless steel systems and can be fully customized for different products, resulting in higher cell culture productivity and faster process transfer and scale-up.
