According to Samsung BioLogics, the US FDA’s license for the second plant came just 19 months after its Good Manufacturing Practices were ready in 2016.
“We are eager to maintain and further improve our biopharmaceutical quality systems and manufacturing process in a GMP-certified manufacturing facility to provide high-quality products to our clients,” said Samsung BioLogics CEO Kim Tae-han.
