Together with numerous guests from politics, economics, life sciences and medical diagnostics, SCIENION celebrated the opening of new state of the art facilities in Portsmouth. More than 1,000 square meters will enable SCIENION UK to run customer R&D projects including single cell applications. The new location provides ISO5 clean room facilities for contract manufacturing services to address the rapidly growing UK and worldwide customer base.
SCIENION’s UK customer base has significantly expanded over the last 15 years. In order to interact closer with its customer base, SCIENION UK Ltd. was founded in Chichester in 2019 and led to the expansion to new facilities in Portsmouth. SCIENION UK is now able to promote and provide more extensive services and opportunities for collaborations with its UK customers.
Dr Holger Eickhoff, founder and CEO of SCIENION GmbH and BICO SVP & Business Area Bioautomation Director, said: “Despite all Brexit and Covid challenges in recent years we are proud that we could support our important UK customers with our products, services and technologies which are key in modern diagnostic test manufacturing. Having examined a number of possible options, SCIENION is convinced that the new global hub for contract manufacturing in Portsmouth is the best possible for the Group, and will create the highest value for all Stakeholders.”
