The new joint Process Scale-Up Lab is located in Bengaluru, India, within the Stelis Biopharma R&D Facility in the Jigani industrial estate. Merck will use the new Lab to provide end-to-end solutions from process development to scale-up manufacturing for pre-clinical, clinical and commercial supply. The collaboration brings together Stelis’ end-to-end capabilities in high-yield bioprocess development from cell line to commercial manufacturing scale and Merck’s industry leading technological expertise in bioprocessing. The Lab, together with a soon-to-be-completed cGMP manufacturing facility, will house Merck’s portfolio of Mobius bioprocessing equipment and single-use manufacturing components.
