Millipore To Open Training Facility in Singapore Next Year

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Millipore plans to open a new applications and training facility in Singapore, the company announced yesterday.
The state-of-the-art facility is intended to cater to biotech customers operating in Asia. Millipore President and CEO Martin Madaus announced the move during his visit to Singapore, Beijing, and Tokyo for the Bioforum Asia conference.
The facility, to be located in Singapore’s Science Park, is expected to open early in 2009. The company said it will provide technical support for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, including tools for investigating, exploring, and optimizing separation, purification, and monitoring.
“Many of our large multinational customers and local manufacturers have made significant investments in Asia and this new facility continues and enhances the local support that we have provided over the past 25 years we have been in Singapore,” Madaus said in a statement.
