Baxter International announced the formal opening of its first advanced recombinant biologic facility in Singapore, and expansion plans for a new recombinant protein processing suite. The current suite supports the processing of ADVATE.The second suite will initially process RIXUBIS, a recombinant factor IX protein for the treatment of adults with hemophilia B and, when operational, will be the primary global commercial processing facility. It will also support production of the company’s investigational extended half-life recombinant FVIII treatment BAX 855 upon regulatory approval. The Singapore facility received regulatory approval from the European Medicines Agency in January 2014 for the production of ADVATE2.

The biologics facility in Singapore currently employs more than 400 production staff and expects to reach 450 by 2015 to support the second processing suite.
