Orgenesis subsidiary expands production, doubles capacity
Orgenesis announced that its subsidiary, Masthercell Globa has launched a new production wing of 600 square meters at its Belgium site in the presence of Belgium's Public Health and Social Affairs Minister, Maggie De Block, and the Minister-President of Wallonia, Willy Borsus. Masthercell is also backed by Great Point Partners. The expansion of the current Belgium plant provides Masthercell five additional, late stage and commercial ready clean rooms. This new wing has been designed with an agility-by-design approach. This allows clients to adapt clinical versus commercial segregation and clean room surface optimization for both isolation of certain parts of the facility and doubling of clean room size. Each clean room of the new production wing is 30 square meters with independent HVAC systems to ensure full autonomy and independent maintenance management. The new wing also brings additional capabilities, including two development laboratories, one quality control laboratory and additional warehouse capabilities.
