Biotechnology company SCG Cell Therapy has officially opened its new manufacturing facility and research and development centre at its headquarters in Singapore.
The company’s cGMP [current good manufacturing practice] facility leverages and expands the company’s expertise in advanced manufacturing and off-the-shelf human-induced pluripotent stem cell technology, with the support of the Singapore Economic Development Board.
SCG’s partner hospitals in the Asia Pacific region, North America and Europe will receive cell therapy products from the new facility.
In 2021, SCG joined forces with the Cell Therapy Facility of the Singapore Health Sciences Authority (HSA-CTF) to undergo the validation process for its closed and automated cell therapy manufacturing system.
The system obtained accreditation from the US Food and Drug Administration and the HSA for clinical trials.
SCG Cell Therapy CEO Frank Wang stated: “In line with Singapore’s advanced manufacturing initiatives, the opening of this facility set an important milestone of cell therapy manufacturing advancement in the region.
