Wuxi, China, Sept. 20, 2022 – WuXi Biologics (“WuXi Bio”) (2269.HK), a leading global Contract Research, Development and Manufacturing Organization (CRDMO), today announced that its two Drug Substance (DS) facilities and a Drug Product (DP) facility located in Wuxi city received regulatory approvals from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
After passing online Pre-Approval Inspection (PAI), WuXi Biologics received EMA GMP certificates for the commercial manufacturing of two biologics developed by global clients at its MFG4, MFG5 and DP2 facilities. This is the first time MFG5, the newest operational DS facility with a total of 60,000L capacity, and DP2, the second DP facility for vials, have been certified by the EMA, only 10 months after they were released for GMP manufacturing. The U.S. FDA also approved MFG5 to manufacture an innovative product for a global client.
