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.
