About the Biologics Innovation Facility
A training and production facility housing sophisticated bioprocessing technology to provide biologics manufacturing solutions and transform professional training in a GMP-Lite environment.
Global teaching partner with NIBRT
The NSW node of National Biologics Facility
Supported by NSW and NCRIS
Single-use platform technology by GE Healthcare
The Biologics Innovation facility (BIF) is a training and production focused facility located in The University of Technology, Sydney. The state-of-the-art single-use biomanufacturing equipment by GE Healthcare gives the fast-changing biotech and pharmaceutical industry the opportunity to have employees locally trained and upskilled in both upstream and downstream processing techniques.
The facility provides hands-on teaching and training experiences by being the only institute in Australia and South East Asia delivering training programs from the Dublin- based National Institute of Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT). This offers a unique opportunity for students and biotech companies to up-skill their future workforce.
As a flexible, single use, small batch production and testing facility, BIF overcomes current constraints in local facilities often geared to long production runs. BIF provides the necessary infrastructure for biotechnology companies to scale and refine their processes.
The facility is based on a 200L process to produce monoclonal antibodies and other recombinant products. The facility has been built with the capability to use different mammalian expression platforms and has also been future-proofed to accommodate an expansion to a 1000L process. The facility will focus on training, process development, and small scale manufacturing.
