BioGenomics is a Science driven enterprise. Led by eminent scientists, business professionals and a focussed team of molecular biologists, microbiologists and protein engineers, BioGenomics has, in a short span of 10 years, developed dozens of Biopharmaceuticals and Biotech products.
BioGenomics has a thorough understanding of both microbial and mammalian technologies and the ability to develop own clones and cell lines. The resulting unique platform technology has allowed BioGenomics to rapidly deliver efficient, cost-effective, scalable and internationally acceptable technologies and products.
With fully integrated ‘Bench to Manufacturing’ facilities, BioGenomics ensures a quick turnaround, adaptive technology and is capable of full-scale manufacturing.
BioGenomics is consistently able to meet and exceed all regulatory standards in its products, processes and facilities.
Our proven capability to research, develop, customize and manufacture high-value biopharmaceuticals is an endorsement of our ability to meet global benchmarks. Our strengths lie in our scientific forte, proprietary technologies and state-of-the-art facilities.
BioGenomics has a strong scientific base, and we aim to innovate and adapt to the changing socio-economic demands of healthcare, at every stage, from laboratory bench to manufacturing shop floor.
Young, rapidly growing biopharmaceutical firm, BioGenomics is on a trajectory of delivering excellence in healthcare. We draw from our core desire of wanting to enrich lives with high-quality and valuable drugs. Our mission is to deliver affordable healthcare and to do all we can to ensure patient access to expensive specialty pharmaceuticals and biological drugs.
We are here to deliver on the promise that all advances on the laboratory bench, intellectual capital and investment in the life sciences are all pillars of support for a single purpose – the patient's wellbeing.
In keeping this ideal in mind BioGenomics was founded with the belief that affordable healthcare is a thing of the past in the developed world and a false- promise for the developing world. Extremely high-priced specialty drugs and biologicals have combined with complex global healthcare delivery systems to cause cost escalation to an extent that healthcare systems are strained and bursting at the seams in the developed world. On the other hand, patients in developing countries have poor access to valuable pharmaceutical products.
Biosimilars offer the world a unique opportunity to simultaneously increase healthcare delivery while also shaving tens of billions of dollars every year in healthcare spend. We think Biosimilars adoption is a sensible way forward to achieve our mission.
BioGenomics aims to redress the balance by providing high-value drugs to patients at affordable prices. To that extent we have embarked on an ambitious drug-development program around Biosimilars and have charted a plan based on a highly-streamlined and efficient technology platform and manufacturing process to deliver 15 Biosimilars over the next few years.
- To deliver high quality products through a safe and compliant environment with advanced infrastructure.
- To make affordable healthcare to all patients.
- To develop an enriching relationship with our customers, employees and partners.
- To develop innovative products, technologies and business practices.
Established by our top management, which consists of eminent scientists, our culture promotes continuous scientific exploration and innovation. There is no limit to the possibilities of life-changing breakthroughs that we can discover.
High Quality Products and Services
Through adherence to strict processes, regulations, safety norms and extensive testing, we ensure our products are clinically safe and highly effective.
Adaptive Innovation in a Fully-Integrated Business Model
We operate a fully integrated business. Hence, from bench research and development to actual large scale manufacturing, we do it all. Since both the products and the technologies used to manufacture them, are in-house, turnaround is quick and high-level of customisation is possible.
Our board members are highly trained and experienced in their fields. Their in-depth knowledge and focus contributes to the robustness of our processes and ensures our projects are carried out successfully without any glitches.
Completely ‘Animal Origin Free’ Products
Our products are 100% Animal Origin Free. They ensure complete freedom from complications and diseases arising from animal-based drugs and meet stringent international regulations. Our strengths lie in our scientific forte, proprietary technologies and state-of-the-art facilities.
