03 June 2024 | News

Commissioning of manufacturing capacity will be completed in 2024

Aurigene Pharmaceutical Services, a Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories company, inaugurated its biologics facility spread across 70,000 sq.ft. in Genome Valley, a bio cluster, located in Hyderabad.

The facility is designed to serve customers with process & analytical development and small scale manufacturing of antibodies and other recombinant proteins for preclinical and early phase clinical requirements. The process and analytical development laboratories are now operational while the commissioning of manufacturing capacity will be completed later in 2024.

The state-of-the-art facility is equipped with best-in-class equipment and control systems, supported by an experienced talent pool that will ensure seamless transfer to large-scale commercial CGMP manufacturing facilities. The new facility is complementary to the company’s current discovery capabilities and infrastructure, which primarily focuses on recombinant proteins including mAbs, bi- and multi-specifics, immune-fusion molecules, antibody drug conjugates and other complex proteins.

The newly opened Genome Valley facility will deliver robust, compliant and economically viable cell lines, process development solutions and supporting analytical methods in support of customers seeking to rapidly enter and progress through clinical development. 

The opening of this latest facility is one of multiple strategic initiatives that Aurigene is implementing to support rapid growth in both the small molecule and biologics spaces, as illustrated by recent announcements related to AI/ML-led drug discovery in small molecules and a collaboration with Vipergen, a DNA-encoded library (DEL) technologies service provider.
