Thereto we have a state of the art GMP facility for the automated fill & finish of sterile injectable drug products for liquid and lyophilized presentations, in vials and syringes.

Our facility has an excellent manufacturing and regulatory track record (including EMA and US FDA), and therefore we are able to manufacture clinical as well as commercial drug products for our clients. We bring value to our clients through our expertise, facility, focus, quality, strong program management, and most importantly through our customer orientation and ‘can do’ mentality. BioConnection is a rapidly growing company, currently expanding its manufacturing capacity with a new production line, which will be ready for GMP production in Q2 2021.
