    Diosynth: New UK bioreactor

    20.08.2014 Biopharmaceutical contract manufacturer Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies is expanding its cell culture manufacturing capacity further with a new 2,000l single-use bioreactor at the company’s site in Billingham, UK.

    The site currently operates 1,000l single-use bioreactors with 250l to 1,000l operating volumes, with an additional 200l single-use bioreactor. The new bioreactor is expected to be operational by January 2015. Another similar reactor will be installed by November 2014 in Fujifilm Diosynth’s US-American site Research Triangle Park.

    "The addition of these two new bioreactors will meet the demand we are seeing for a 2,000l platform, and offer a cost-effective, low-risk route to market through 'scaling-out' from early phase to commercial manufacture," says Steve Bagshaw, Chief Executive Officer, Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies. He added: "Having identical single-use operations on both sides of the Atlantic offers our customers flexibility and easy access to global markets."
