An essential and complete guide for the biotechnology companies operating in Singapore.

Industry Articles

Preface

Since it was first published in 2003, the Singapore Biotech Guide has been the premier industry publication for Singapore’s biotech sector, contributing to the development of the industry by making essential start-up information readily available. The Guide also made its rounds at various international and regional trade shows, helping to promote Singapore’s biomedical sciences industry.

As Singapore’s biomedical sciences industry continues to grow and mature, we feel that it is timely for the Guide to expand its coverage to include the pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical manufacturing sector. We are therefore delighted to embark on this task by collaborating with the Singapore chapter of the ISPE (International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering) to profile their member companies in this year’s Guide. ISPE is an international not-for-profit association representing stakeholder members from the pharmaceutical industry. The Guide’s directory has now been expanded to include Singapore-based companies that offer products and services across the R&D and manufacturing value chain. Moving forward, we will also progressively add other pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical industry-related contents to the Guide. To reflect this expanded scope, we have chosen to rename the Guide the Singapore PharmBio Guide.

We remain grateful to our various partners, including the continual support of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), both as a key contributor of editorial content and as an important distribution channel through the EDB offices worldwide. And as always, we would like to thank our advertisers for their loyal support and we hope that you will continue to find this guide relevant. We appreciate any comment or feedback that will help us improve our publication further. Do feel free to drop us an email at biotechguide@1st-phase.com.
