With the significant and continued growth of CrownBio’s client base, the Zhongshan facility has been purpose built to meet expanding study needs.

The research and drug development facility features BSL-2 laboratories and will include a state-of-the-art ABSL-2 vivarium. Initial capabilities will focus on expanding cell line-derived xenograft model availability and study throughput, with an increased roster of cutting edge, translational oncology models becoming available. Full operational capacity is expected in early 2021.

“The establishment of our new Zhongshan facility demonstrates our continued commitment to our clients, to provide sustained rapid study initiation combined with robust cost-effectiveness,” said John Gu, chief operating officer at CrownBio. “Through our growth, we can more fully support our clients in their goals of more rapid and efficient cancer drug development”.

A site opening event and ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on October 30th 2020.
