SINGAPORE; PORT WASHINGTON, NY – February 21, 2018 – Pall Corporation, a global leader in filtration, separation and purification, has announced the opening of a $2 million Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) Centre of Excellence in biologics manufacturing featuring various Pall technologies for practical training and application.
On January 4th, Pall hosted official opening ceremonies to celebrate the crucial role that the NYP Centre of Excellence will play in the evolution of this rapidly growing industry. Annually, the one-stop, integrated training center will introduce 300 NYP School of Chemical and Life Sciences students to the latest technologies and advances in the industry.
In its debut year, the NYP Centre of Excellence is showcasing single-use technologies, including chromatography column packing and filter integrity testing apparatus supplied by Pall. Each technology enables more thorough purification of substances in both biopharmaceutical and biologics processes, and helps students see the value of integrity in process.
“Large molecule drugs offer the potential to treat debilitating and life-threatening diseases in ways that were not possible before. Yet, to achieve this, manufacturing processes need to evolve for greater speed, reduced cost, and higher quality outputs,” commented Steve Waters, Vice-President of Biotechnologies, Pall Asia. “The NYP center will benefit students— and the wider Biotech industry through direct access to the latest technologies. Overall, the goal is to increase workforce skill levels in Singapore and its neighboring countries.”
“We are proud to partner with Pall to bring the NYP students a deeper level of knowledge that comes only from the practical application of skills,” said Dr. Joel Lee, Director of the NYP School of Chemical and Life Sciences. “It provides immense value to the students’ biologics and process technology, or chemical and pharmaceutical technology curriculum, giving them an excellent head-start for careers.”
The center complements the existing labs located at NYP with 120 training targets for industry professionals to learn the latest technologies as they grow in their careers. NYP also plans to support industry professionals with short industry courses on cell culture, sterilization techniques, and filtration technologies.
The NYP Centre of Excellence is located at:
Nanyang Polytechnic (School of Chemical & Life Sciences)
Block Q, Level 3 – Lab, 180
Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8
