SUZHOU, China, Nov. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — WuXi Vaccines, a leading global Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), announced that it has entered into an agreement with Harbour BioMed under which Harbour BioMed’s manufacturing facility in Suzhou will be transferred to WuXi Vaccines.
The 8,500-square-meter facility includes multiple 250L, 500L and 1000L single-use bioreactors as well as sterile drug-product manufacturing lines. This facility, a new node within WuXi Vaccines global network, will be renovated to provide industry-leading vaccine development and GMP manufacturing services for its global partners. It will also be WuXi Vaccines’ first standalone vaccine development and GMP manufacturing site in China.
Mr. Jian Dong, CEO of WuXi Vaccines, commented, “We are very pleased to enter into this agreement with Harbour BioMed. This is a win-win agreement for both of our companies.
