Global manufacturing facilities in Biberach, Vienna, Fremont, CA, and Shanghai

Our US Presence for significant Cell Culture Capacities

Mammalian manufacturing facility: Fremont, CA, USA

The site in Fremont, CA, joined the Boehringer Ingelheim BioXcellence™ network in 2011 and is dedicated to the manufacture of monoclonal antibody medicines and other proteins from mammalian cell culture technology. With a significant investment in a third bioreactor in 2018, capacities were increased, with a scale of up to 15,000 L.

The 300,000 square-foot facility features two identical, independent large-scale trains for cell culture and purification, effectively allowing for the simultaneous production of different products. This makes Fremont particularly flexible in handling large-scale parallel projects. An additional train with disposables is ideally suited for early clinical projects. This is further aided by our strong experience in perfusion and fully continuous manufacturing with a specially developed technology.

Multi-product capabilities for your diversified needs.
