New Corporate Headquarters and Laboratory facilitate and encourage high-performing clinical work and testing.
Champlin Architecture was engaged by AB Biotechnologies in 2016 to create a new vision for a corporate headquarters and manufacturing center. The new 23,000 SF facility includes clean room lab space to formulate, fill, freeze-dry, and package drugs for early-phase clinical research. AB BioTechnologies, Inc. is a contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) located in Bloomington, Indiana. AB offers corresponding process development and analytical services as supplements and standalone projects. From early-stage development work to pre-clinical / tox studies material manufacture, AB BioTechnologies’ experienced scientists bring client projects from concept to clinic. AB’s contract services support early-stage development and provide pre-clinical / tox manufacturing to clients around the world. With the recent addition of GLP manufacturing to their portfolio, AB can now shorten the time to the clinic by offering liquid and lyophilized vial filling.
With the new facility, clients and investors can now view the testing process via a touring corridor which provides access to the two QA/QC, R&D laboratories and eight workstations that will support eight full-time scientists in the testing of products. Collaborative work areas including private offices, huddle space, and conference rooms are provided for additional lab and administrative management personnel. The second floor houses a teaching/training center and café which can supports large seminars and educational sessions for their employees. The warehouse area accommodates the prefabricated clean room and refrigeration/freezer equipment, as well as additional storage racking and a shipping/receiving dock.
