Bioceros is now part of Polpharma Biologics

Bioceros was acquired by Polpharma Biologics in 2016 who have been investing in Bioceros’ Dutch site, technologies and employees to create world leading discovery and development capabilities.  

Polpharma Biologics took a further step in July 2020 and integrated Bicoeros’ Utrecht site and their advanced discovery and development capabilities fully into their already extensive biologics development and manufacturing offering and dropped the Bioceros brand. This change makes Polpharma Biologics a truly integrated biopharmaceutical CDMO, offering the complete spectrum of services from discovery to drug substance and drug product development and manufacturing for clinical and commercial supply. 

There is no change in the attention and detail we pay to everyone of our client’s projects in Utrecht and we continue to deliver to the highest standard. We still offer world class discovery and cell line development capabilities that you can find more information below.
