GMP Manufacturing

Commercial-Ready Biologics Manufacturing

Bionova’s state-of-the-art, commercial-ready GMP biologics manufacturing facility opened in 2021 and is currently producing clinical supply for clients. With the help of industry-leading construction, design/engineering firms, and critical equipment partners, our experienced GMP team created a world-class facility that is second to none. Bionova is now energized to deliver turnkey biologics development and production services from “DNA to bulk drug substance.”

GMP Facility Highlights

  • State-of-the-art facility using exclusively single-use and dedicated equipment
  • Manufacturing slots available now up to 2000L scale.
  • Clinical and commercial production for global supply.
  • Achieved successful QP inspection in 2022 for EU clinical supply.
  • Flexibility by design: fed-batch or perfusion, clinical or commercial, we can handle just about any process. All client processes, materials and methods are customized.
  • Cell culture trains utilize Cytiva’s (formerly GE Life Sciences) XDR single-use bioreactors and FlexFactory™ Single-use Bioprocess Platform for rapid deployment and accelerated production with flexible, scalable processes.
  • On-site WFI (water for injection) generation is integrated in facility.

Designed by Pros for Pros

In addition to stainless steel, plastic, masonry and glass, experience is the most important ingredient in Bionova’s new GMP biologics manufacturing facility. Our operations and quality leadership team has extensive experience designing and operating GMP facilities, including commercial facilities at top-tier multinational CDMOs. We selected industry leaders DGA and Dome as design and construction partners because of their deep experience with biopharmaceutical facilities. We’ve designed this facility so we can operate it with the highest levels of efficiency, quality and regulatory compliance.

Future-Proof Design

Rather than try to predict where customers and the industry might take us, we designed versatility and future-proofing into our facility from the ground-up. With an open ballroom design, all single-use technology and systems and infrastructure ready for commercial manufacturing, we are able to adapt for any type of process and can support clients throughout the product life-cycle.

Driven by Client Demand

For years, clients have been asking Bionova to add GMP manufacturing capability. Based on our performance in Cell Line Development, GLP material production, process development, process characterization, analytical and other services, clients have come to rely on the strong partnerships they’ve developed with our team. After a great experience with us on a development project, they’ve had to turn elsewhere for GMP production.

We’re happy we can now offer clinical production handled by the same trusted team that has been doing such a great job in other aspects of client development programs. As an indicator of the trust clients place in the Bionova team, we have already signed multiple clinical supply agreements for the new facility.


Bionova would love to hear from you.
