BTI-Biosana Joint Laboratory in Continuous Bioprocessing Signing Ceremony

15 November 2019

On 15 November 2019, Bioprocessing Technology Institute (BTI), A*STAR and BiosanaPharma (Biosana), signed an agreement for research collaboration to advance continuous biomanufacturing.

BiosanaPharma is a Dutch/Australian biotechnology company whose proprietary 3C process can be used to lower production costs for monoclonal antibody therapeutics. The 3C technology addresses the application of single-use technologies and hardware fouling in continuous biomanufacturing.

BTI’s 3-year partnership with BiosanaPharma will focus on advancing continuous processing by downscaling, modelling, and enabling in-line and atline analytical monitoring. If successful, the project is expected to make antibody therapeutics more affordable and beneficial to patients.


BTI-ESCO Aster Signing Ceremony

To commemorate the partnership between the two parties, a signing ceremony was held during the 11th Asian Federation of Biotechnology Regional Symposium 2019.

For BTI, being a Centre of Excellence marks a significant milestone to further advance the development of safe and effective cell and gene therapies. This collaboration will allow ESCO Aster to leverage on BTI’s expertise in bioprocessing science and engineering to develop innovative biomanufacturing solutions that will meet the demands of high-value cell and gene therapy space.


11th Asian Federation of Biotechnology Regional Symposium 2019

23 to 25 January 2019

The AFOB Regional Symposium (ARS) is an annual event of the Asian Federation of Biotechnology (AFOB). The 11th ARS 2019 will be organized by the Bioprocessing Technology Institute (BTI), A*STAR and the Singapore Society for Microbiology and Biotechnology (SSMB), Singapore in coordination with AFOB, and will be held in Biopolis, Singapore from January 23rd to 25th, 2019. The theme for ARS 2019 is “Biotechnology for the Asian Century” and focus is how Asia can drive biotechnological advancements in the 21st Century.

This symposium aims to bring together scientists from Asia who are actively working in emerging platform technologies and their biotechnology applications, in order to share and discuss state-of-the-art developments and their industrial applications. Additionally, the workshop will seek to identify the key opportunities and challenges in this field and strategies to effectively address them. The workshop is chaired by Prof Kong Peng Lam (Bioprocessing Technology Institute, A*STAR, Singapore).
