Thermo Fisher Scientific opens new GMP clinical services facility in Singapore

Offers more space and advanced equipment to meet the growing needs of pharma and biotech clients

Thermo Fisher Scientific has opened a new 6,500m2 GMP clinical supply facility in Singapore.

The company said the new site will provide a 'one-stop service for clinical supplies' and offer GMP storage, local labelling, secondary packaging, comparator sourcing, handling and distribution of ambient and cold chain supplies, and returns management.

The company established its first clinical services facility in Singapore in 2001, and will move to a newly built facility on Toh Guan Road, Jurong East, part of a biomedical and pharmaceutical hub in Singapore. The facility is more than 60% larger than the previous one and doubles cold chain storage capacity.

Asia-Pacific continues to be our fastest-growing market and a central contributor to our growth

The new facility includes a new climatic control energy consumption system that reduces its carbon footprint, while a building monitoring system provides updates on the facility's conditions.

Leon Wyszkowski, Thermo Fisher's Vice President of Clinical Services for North America, said: 'Asia-Pacific continues to be our fastest-growing market and a central contributor to our growth.

'For nearly 15 years, Singapore has been the central hub for our Asia-Pacific operations, due to its strategic location. With the opening of our larger and well-equipped facility, we aim to continue to build on our Singapore facility further and on the expertise of our local team, to strengthen our regional and global presence in the clinical supplies industry.'
