Wuxi, CHINA, April 7, 2021
– WuXi Biologics ("WuXi Bio") (2269.HK), a global company with leading open-access biologics technology platforms, today announced that it has successfully completed both a Pre-License Inspection (PLI) and a routine GMP inspection by the U.S. FDA (FDA). The inspections focused on the two different innovative biologics manufactured at the company's facilities including MFG1, MFG2 and DP1 in Wuxi, China. With an excellent track record during all inspections and audits to date, WuXi Biologics further demonstrated its established premier-quality systems are in compliance with the highest global regulatory standards.
During the 15 working day inspections, 9 inspectors evaluated the manufacturing, raw material, warehousing, laboratory, equipment, utilities and quality systems. Virtual assessment using innovative digital solutions (e.g., due diligence, GMP audits and inspections, persons-in-plant) developed by WuXi Biologics along with a subsequent on-site inspection was conducted on these facilities.
Dr. Chris Chen, CEO of WuXi Biologics, commented
, "I'm pleased that the FDA inspections at our Wuxi sites were completed successfully once again, marking yet another milestone in our capability to perform late-stage clinical and commercial manufacturing for our global partners. Recent history of passing regulatory inspections has laid a solid foundation for our continuous expansion of manufacturing capacities and capabilities as we are committed to providing a global dual source supply chain supported by our world-class quality system. Through our robust manufacturing supply network, we will continue to effectively and efficiently bring biologics into the clinic and to the market for our global partners to benefit patients worldwide."
Since 2017, WuXi Biologics has completed ten regulatory inspections conducted by the FDA, EMA and ANVISA. This makes WuXi Biologics the first and, to-date, the only biologics company certificated by these regulatory agencies for commercial manufacturing in China.
