Thermo Fisher Invests in New Media Mfg Facility
Thermo Fisher Scientific has invested Â£14 million ($22 million) to expand its campus in Inchinnan, Scotland, with the addition of a dry-powder media manufacturing facility. The facility will manufacture a proprietary dry media powder, Gibco Advanced Granulation Technology (AGT). AGT products are animal-origin free, single-component, particulate-free powders for chemically defined cell culture.
The new facility complements a Thermo Fisher facility in Grand Island, New York, where AGT is also manufactured. The new facility will add to the Inchinnan site's existing manufacturing operations, which produce liquid media for a range of research and production applications.
