Birka BioStorage is expanding its capacity
Birka BioStorage will be doubling its storage and logistic capacity during Q3 2016, after signing long term service agreements with two major Danish biotech companies.
The company´s current infrastructure has been able to host up to 2 millions of vials, at different climates. The upcoming expansion is planned to scale up the storage capacity to 5 millions. New handling technologies and state of the art equipment will be introduced.
Ali Ismail (CEO): ”The two new agreements and the growing need from current clients, are important milestones to Birka´s business. During 2016, we have seen that our services were becoming an essential part of our client´s development projects”.
The increased capacity will be mostly dedicated to clinical research and development, including relocation and samples from clinics to Birka, future further distribution to service providers or discard.
