New IB centre opens at Heriot-Watt

The Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC) has opened a new bioprocessing centre, allowing hundreds of UK businesses to scale-up and commercialise their concepts without outsourcing abroad. The new centre, based at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, will focus on research and projects that are ready to scale up and need facilities to trial this at commercial level before investment. Known as FlexBio, the Flexible Downstream Bioprocessing Centre fills the current UK-wide gap in the provision of scale-up facilities at this size (15-100 litre) and provides many services that cannot be found elsewhere in Europe.
