Location: GE Healthcare Life Sciences’ site, Björkgatan 30, Uppsala
Date and time: Monday, 10 September, 2018
During the past years, we have been witnessing tremendous growth in the biopharmaceutical sector; bio-drugs are now the world’s fastest-growing class of medicines.
GE Healthcare Life Sciences develops and manufactures both the equipment and supplies to manufacture biopharmaceuticals, and today all ten top biologic drugs in the market use GE technologies in their manufacturing processes.
We are inviting you to visit GE Healthcare Life Sciences’ site in Uppsala that employs around 1,200 people, covering production, research & development and business support services. The factory in Uppsala is one of the largest manufacturing facilities for chromatography resins in the world, and between 2017 and 2022 GE is annually investing up to USD 70 million to increase the production capacity.
In August opens Testa Center in Uppsala, a major initiative between the Swedish government and GE to secure the growth of the nation’s life science industry and its manufacturing capabilities in particular. This facility is purpose-built for verifying digital, technical or biological innovations in an authentic production setting and open to academia, start-ups and industry.
Join us for an afternoon to experience this exciting and innovative life sciences site that helps to increase access to biopharmaceuticals globally.
