Amgen has completed construction of its first next-generation biomanufacturing facility, located in Singapore.

The new facility utilizes single-use bioreactors, disposable plastic containers, continuous purification processing and real-time quality analysis. It is expected to have the same production capacity as a conventional facility, but to use less energy and water and have lower solid waste and emission levels.

'At Amgen, we are reinventing what it means to manufacture biologic medicines," said Robert Bradway, Amgen's chairman and chief executive officer. 'Singapore is an ideal place to invest in such a pioneering facility because of its talented workforce and commitment to the biotechnology industry.'
