Kajima sponsors The 2nd Asian Conference for Plant Made Pharmaceuticals(PMPAsia2021)NEW

Kajima sponsors PMPAsia2021 International Conference on Plant-Derived Biopharmaceuticals hosted by an executive committee of Japanese universities and public research institutions on November 9-10 (Japanese Time).

Plant Made Pharmaceuticals (PMP), which are pharmaceuticals (raw materials) produced in plants using genetically modified technologies, have received increasing attention in recent years from the viewpoint of their safety and carbon neutrality. Kajima has focused on this technology for more than 15 years and has been conducting research and development from the point of view of institutional engineering.

This time, the International Conference on Plant-Derived Biopharmaceuticals PMPAsia2021 will be held in Japan, and Kajima will cooperate. At the conference, researchers related to human and veterinary PMP and other useful materials, as well as basic technologies, will be brought together from domestic and overseas and foreign countries to present the latest research results and practical applications in the field, and to exchange opinions among participants.

Kajima Exhibits and Holds Seminar at the 7th Biologics Manufacturing Asia 2020 Convention

Kajima exhibited and held a seminar at the Biologics Manufacturing Asia 2020, a convention focusing on the fields of biopharmaceutical and cell & gene therapy that brings together major pharmaceutical companies and academic leaders from Europe, the United States, Japan, and all over Asia.

Due to the influence of COVID-19, this year, the conference was held virtually for the first time in its 7-year history, using an event platform application. At the virtual booth and the seminar, Kajima introduced its activities and newly developed technologies, including its original BUSTER MINITM continuous heating type inactivation wastewater processing system. BUSTER MINITM sterilizes and inactivates microorganisms and viruses. Moreover, it features a streamlined footprint to meet the needs of mainstream biopharmaceuticals and small-scale facilities like laboratories.

Following the exhibition in 2018, Kajima was awarded the "Asia-Pacific Bioprocessing Excellence Award 2020: Engineering & Facility Design," recognizing it out of a field of many other engineering companies as a company that had made important contributions to the field of biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

Seminar dates: July 7 and 8, 2020
Booth open: June 7 to July 31
