Chime Biologics Evolving Into One of the Leading CDMOs in China Serving the Global Biotech Industry

With the separation from JHL Biotech complete, Chime Biologics is now focused on delivering the world-class Biologics CDMO services to its global clients and business partners.

Chime Biologics’ state-of-the-art 150,000 square feet facility is located in the Wuhan’s BioLake biotech industry development zone of China (China Optics Valley). As the world’s first GE KuBio facility, it’s environmentally friendly design reduces CO2 emissions and water and energy usage. The current facility is equipped with four 2,000 L and two 500 L single-use bioreactors for both clinical and commercial GMP manufacturing, avoiding costly cleaning and sterilization steps and allowing a more efficient manufacturing process.

Amid the recent coronavirus outbreak, Chime Biologics took immediate actions to support the community and the local government via a string of initiatives. Immediately after closing down of Wuhan city, Chime Biologics donated a wide range of medical materials, including protective gowns, head caps, overshoes, and masks for the frontline usage, to supplement the material shortage due to emergency need. Further, with support from its strategic partner, Chime Biologics donated one million RMB to the China Optics Valley to help fighting the novel coronavirus epidemic.

While the epidemic prevention and control task is arduous, we believe if we can support and stand by our frontline workers, we will come out of this much stronger.
