What’s New from Top CDMO Samsung Biologics

Published

on

Over the last few years, Samsung Biologics has emerged as one of the leading CDMOs in a period dominated by the importance of fast, high-volume production of a range of pharmaceutical products.

CDMOs are contract development and manufacturing organizations, partnering with biopharmaceutical companies to help support their production abilities and provide a range of services to help get their products developed and manufactured at multiple scales.

Samsung Biologics has recently made a  global impact with a series of recent partnerships and announcements.

Partnership with Moderna

In May 2021, Samsung Biologics announced a manufacturing services  agreement with Moderna, a biotechnology company pioneering mRNA therapeutics and vaccines, to provide large scale, commercial fill-finish manufacturing for mRNA-1273, Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine.

“This vaccine is paramount to people around the world in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, and we truly appreciate our client Moderna for entrusting and choosing to partner with Samsung Biologics for the fill and finish of this important vaccine,” said John Rim, CEO of Samsung Biologics. “Due to the high level of urgency in supplying the vaccine to the global population, we have set immediate action plans and schedule to make mRNA-1273 available for commercial distribution in the early second half of 2021.”

Development of mRNA Vaccine Manufacturing Site

The first half of 2021 was dominated by the word ‘vaccine,’ as focus on the development of a COVID-19 vaccine turned to focus on how to manufacture these vaccines at scale and distribute them throughout the globe.

In this environment, the leadership of CDMO Samsung Biologics determined that expanded vaccine production capabilities would be central to the company’s future. That’s why Samsung Biologics has announced that it will add mRNA vaccine DS production to its existing primary CDMO manufacturing facility by this time next year.

New ISO Certifications in Multiple Areas

Samsung Biologics also recently acquired ISO  certifications for environmental management, occupational health and safety management, energy management, and business continuity management. These global certifications help formalize the CDMO’s commitment to industry-leading practices in everything from sustainability to continuity.

“We are extremely proud to obtain four global ISO certifications during a time where a high degree sustainable management system is vital, especially in light of COVID-19, to stably operate and supply crucial biomedicines for patients,” John Rim, CEO of Samsung Biologics, commented. “Samsung Biologics is a leading CDMO committed to taking responsibility and consideration of ESG factors across all of our business areas, and we will continue to enhance our capabilities to meet the evolving needs of clients whilst ensuring the safety and security of not only our people but also of the environment to ultimately create a better future for humanity.”
