Biocon Biologics was recognized as the winner as it garnered the maximum number of votes from among 70,000 biopharma professionals who participated in the survey. The annual Asia-Pacific Bioprocessing Excellence Awards organized by IMAPAC, recognize organizations who demonstrate exceptional bioprocessing expertise and the use of best-in-class technologies and practices to achieve biomanufacturing excellence in terms of speed, reduced cost, and superior quality.
Biocon Biologics has developed multiple technology platforms that use various expression systems such as bacteria, yeast, and mammalian cells. `
The Pichia Pastoris platform technology used to express recombinant proteins is a proprietary technology developed by Biocon and used for its recombinant human insulin and insulin analog products. Similarly, the company’s scalable mammalian CHO and NSO cell-based expression platforms and robust process science expertise allow it to develop and manufacture both novel and biosimilar monoclonal antibodies for global markets.
Each year, IMAPAC -- the organizing committee of ABEA 2023 -- calls for nominations from the IMAPAC biologics community for different biologics award categories. All entries and nominations are considered and submitted to the judging panel and market research team from IMAPAC. Based on the number of nominations and assessment, the top 5-7 entries under each category are shortlisted. From among the top 5-7 entries, the ABEA winners are determined through voting by the public or bioprocessing community.
