Assets And Services

The overall mission of the Advanced Biomanufacturing Centre (ABC) is the pursuit of new methods for the manufacture of medicinally important compounds, chemical building blocks, and new materials.

Other innovation or manufacturing support, including contract manufacturing services

Bioprocessing. In the future, petrochemicals for manufacturing will not be available. New ways to provide these building blocks will have to be discovered. The answers will come from the fusion of biology and chemistry and will solve the supply problems for chemical manufacturing. Biology provides methods for “programming” plants and other living organisms in order that they make specific chemical substances. Chemical methods transform such building blocks into more complex products, ranging from pharmaceuticals to materials required by society.
