- Are you interested in the biologics industry?
- Do you want to develop capacity for your company in biological systems?
- Is the biological market in your region growing and are you prepared for it?
We work with companies in the biological industry as technology/knowledge transfer consultants in capacity build-up for research and manufacture of biologics. What this means is that we will help companies to transform their existing structure to a more biological purpose and capacity suited to a British/EU standard. For example, a pharmaceutical company (manufacturing generic small molecule drugs) can be transformed into a biopharmaceutical company attaining the capacity to generate biologic products such as recombinants, antibodies, vaccines and blood products, or an agribusiness company can be transformed into an agri-research organisation that will employ biotechnology to improve mammalian or plant products. This subsequently impacts the global supply chains. Cellular, molecular, genetic and immunologic sciences are key elements in BIOTECHNOLOGY that are advancing and enhancing industries in various sectors such as medicine, diagnostics, agriculture and energy. We are transfer agents for these essential sciences. Go to page on Biologics
Our BIOTECH DEVELOPMENT work will involve, generally:
- Developing state of the art laboratories that will support advanced and innovative research in cellular, molecular, genetic and in particular immunologic sciences
- Developing core biological teams with the relevant skills and performance within the company to carry out biological R&D
- Developing biological processes for the manufacture and analysis of proteins and other large molecules.
Generally, these will be in the form of large-scale long-term projects. These usually continue onto follow-on research and trade partnerships.
BIOLOGICS BUSINESS MODULES
Biologics are becoming increasingly important in the pharma and health sectors, but also in other sectors such as agriculture and non-biological manufactures (e.g. leather and textile). There are several modules in the biologics industry that could be important in the local market as well as in the global supply chain for example antibodies in diagnostics, vaccines in poultry, probiotics for humans, enzymes in leather or textiles, etc.
