WorkBeads used for full scale production of FDA approved drug

Press release April 12, 2018

Bio-Works’ separation media, WorkBeads, has become standard for the production of an FDA approved biopharmaceutical which is being used globally for treatment of patients. This pharmaceutical is the first of several ongoing pharmaceutical projects, where WorkBeads is being used, which has come all the way from lab scale to full scale production.

Bio-Works experiences a clear trend where an increasing number of the customers place re-occurring WorkBeads orders. The trend indicates that many of Bio-Works’ customers are moving closer to full scale production. The regulatory authorities often demand that the same separations media is used in production scale as has been used during the late clinical stage (phase 3). This means repeated orders and continuous revenue for Bio-Works during the life time of the pharmaceutical product.

Mats Johnson, Bio-Works CEO:
”We have for a long time worked intensively to commercialize WorkBeads. The fact that WorkBeads now is used for production of an FDA approved pharmaceutical is a breakthrough and a significant proof of confidence which will further strengthen the trust in our products. It decreases the threshold for the use of Bio-Works’ products in new projects. Going forward this breakthrough will lead to increased revenue for Bio-Works and to new sales opportunities.”
