OCTOBER 21, 2014

Nacka, Stockholm: – Swedish-based designer and builder of modular production facilities for the pharma and biopharma industries, Pharmadule Morimatsu AB (Pharmadule) will consolidate its rising profile within the rapidly expanding Asian pharma market with a prominent presence and exhibition at the forthcoming 19th China International Pharmaceutical Industry Exhibition, CHINA-PHARM 2014.

The exhibition, which has become a premier event for the Asian life sciences sector, is being held from October 28 to October 31 in Shenzhen’s ultra-modern SZCEC Expo Center.

Pioneering validation in China

On the eve of the show, Pharmadule will partner with fellow Swedish-based company, Alfa Laval, the heat transfer, separation and fluid-handling specialists, to host a full day pre-show event at the Sheraton Four Points hotel.

One of the highlights of the event will be a presentation by Pharmadule Morimatsu Director for Regulatory Affairs, Magnus Jahnsson, on ‘Qualifying a manufacturing facility in China to comply with EU and US GMP guidelines’.

Mr. Jahnsson said: “I’ll be presenting a case study in which a new Chinese facility for a biopharmaceutical product has been built and qualified with state-of-the-art risk management methods to US and EU standards. So far as we are aware, this is a ‘first’ for the pharma industry.”

“To do this, we’ve had to overcome a series of technical and cultural challenges that our audience will understand all too well,” he added.

Growing regulatory trend

“Previously very few pharmaceutical manufacturers in China have aimed to launch their products in EU or the US. Only API manufacturers have been exporting internationally,” explained Mr. Jahnsson.

“But now we will undoubtedly see more Chinese companies seeking to register their products internationally over the coming years. This presentation will facilitate a better understanding of the unique challenges and the many opportunities that this export drive will bring,” he concluded.

Mr. Jahnsson will make a similar presentation the following day at China-Pharm itself.

Modular approach

This will be Pharmadule’s seventh appearance at CHINA-PHARM, and the company is sending a multi-disciplinary team to this premier Asian networking and partnering event. The team will be able to provide details of Pharmadule’s offerings, including turnkey design and construction services, modular off-site production solutions, commissioning and qualification expertise, GMP and ISO 9000 consultancy and extended after-sales services.

The company will also be using the exhibition’s networking opportunities to identify forthcoming project leads and partners.
