• providing technical support, contract research and services to the biopharmaceutical industry, through the setting up of a BIA Separations Platform of Excellence at CBST.
From CBST/VIT perspective, teaming up with BIA Separations will give CBST/VIT access to a unique and leading edge technologies and know-how in the field of downstream purification and separations of large bio-molecules.
Combining this technology and know-how with CBST/VIT excellence in "oriented research" and excellent scientific base, provide opportunities for bridging the gap between industry and academia, in the areas of bioseparations.
BIA Separations recognizes CBST/VIT academic and bioseparation excellence.
Therefore from BIA Separations perspective this partnership is very important for a successful implementation of BIA Separations technologies that would bring benefits to the biopharmaceutical industry and academic research not only in India but worldwide.
This partnership is also in-line with BIA Separations plans to establish BIA Separations India.
