The philosophy of Mabion is to act as a „End-to-End” supplier for all main services related to the development and manufacturing of biologic drugs, thereby eliminating the requirements of biotech companies for additional outsourcing. Fill & Finish service allows our customers to successfully complete the long journey from protein expression to the final drug product with a single trusted partner.

Executive Summary
