The Biomanufacturing Industry Development Programme facility

2A4A3255The CSIR Biomanufacturing Industry Development Programme helps small, medium and micro enterprises to develop and commercialise biotechnology-based products and technologies. It supports such enterprises in developing new products to expand their existing product portfolios; provides assistance in ensuring regulatory compliance; and undertakes scale-up of technologies and small scale manufacturing of products for market testing.

The supported companies remain the sole owners of their innovations and retain absolute control over their future in terms of added value and partnerships. The facility is aimed at helping lower the cost and barriers that inhibit innovative enterprises from translating their inventions into market-ready products.

The tour will include a visit to molecular biology and protein purification laboratories; chemistry and analytical laboratories; a 20 litre scale bioprocessing facility; a 200 litre bioprocessing pilot plant; a natural products and chemistry pilot facility and downstream processing facility for product isolation, purification and polishing. This demonstrates the full value chain of expertise and facilities required from early stage research and development through to final product or technology.
