As a biotechnology pioneer in Egypt, Rhein-Minapharm Biogenetics feels responsible to support this vital field and is ready and willing to lead the successful implementation of that key technology in the region for the collective good of the public health system. Therefore, near future plans and endeavors include Rhein-Minapharm biotech division growing constantly and exponentially. This continuous extension of existing in-house technologies, yeast as well as mammalian expression systems, is a milestone towards success. Through its strong product pipeline Rhein-Minapharm Biogenetics will continue to assure and strengthen its role as a leader in the production of innovative recombinant proteins in the region.
Minapharm, jointly with its subsidiaries, Rhein-Minapharm and ProBioGen AG, has the visionary strategy to evolve and to introduce cutting-edge immunotherapies to emerging markets with its high scientific competence and expertise.
