cGMP Manufacturing


We offer comprehensive solution for all your cGMP manufacturing needs. Stelis’ fully integrated, end-to-end facility in Bangalore is expected to come on stream by end of 2018. The facility has the capability to produce simple and complex recombinant biotherapeutics from both microbial & mammalian cell culture systems. The facilities have been designed to meet the latest guidelines and expectations of regulators in developed countries (US FDA, EMA) as well as WHO, PICS. We have adopted disposable systems with single-use components and flow paths extensively for better regulatory compliance & greater operational flexibility.
