Bioceros generates production cell lines and production processes for the industry and used its proprietary CHOBC® platform and its SPOT™ technology to generate a portfolio of cell lines producing biosimilar monoclonal antibodies. Since the acquisition of Bioceros by EPIRUS in 2015, he extended this expertise and developed a complete process modulation toolbox to fit biosimilar CQAs. After the acquisition of Epirus NL by the Polpharma Biologics group in June 2016, he has continued to work on biosimilar development and innovative new molecular antibody entities, which now within the Polpharma Biologics group can be progressed to GMP production and clinical testing.
There are two parts to the Festival of Biologics: the five world-class international conferences covering Antibodies, Immunotherapy, BioSimilars, Clinical Trials, and High Potency APIs; and an exhibition featuring the most exciting technology and solutions for pharma and biotech. There is a registration fee to attend the conferences. To visit the exhibition is free.
