Merck KGaA to Invest USD 13.280 million in Rio De Janeiro Facility

Merck KGaA has announced a BRL 42 million (USD 13.280 million) investment to extend the Jacarepagua plant, in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro. Merck plans to expand its production area by 30% from 4,900 square metres to 6,500 square metres. Merck targets production of 3.3 billion pills annually by 2018, up 80% on current capacity. Merck KGaA's extension plans are aimed at facilitating the development and manufacturing of eight biological drugs that are produced in co-operation with its Brazilian partner Bionovis. Additionally, Merck seeks to consolidate its position in other Latin American markets, notably Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia in the first phase, with exports set to grow by 30%. Merck also plans to enter markets in Central America, Argentina and Colombia.

Merck KGaA Receives CE Mark Approval for Gavi and Geri Fertility Technologies

Merck KGaA has received CE mark approval for the two new advanced fertility technologies Gavi and Geri, allowing to market the technologies in the European Union. Recently, Merck signed a global collaboration agreement with Genea Biomedx that manufactures both products. The agreement provided Merck global marketing and commercialization rights to Genea's product portfolio.

Merck KGaA, Illumina Inc. and Genea Limited Announce Formation of Global Fertility Alliance

Merck KGaA announced the formation of the Global Fertility Alliance, a new collaboration to advance excellence in fertility technologies and processes within the assisted reproductive treatment (ART) laboratory. The alliance is a partnership between the biopharmaceutical business of Merck, Illumina Inc. and Genea Limited. The alliance aims to improve the consistency in ART worldwide and addresses the need for more standardization of fertility processes within the ART laboratory. The three companies will launch their initiative at the 31st Annual Meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) in Lisbon, Portugal, on 13 June 2015. This is another important step for the biopharmaceuticals business of Merck, KGaA, towards establishing global standards in the growing market of fertility technologies and the ultimate goal of helping families to have a baby. With the establishment of the alliance, the biopharmaceuticals business of Merck, KGaA, Illumina and Genea emphasize their desire to help improve fertility outcomes by contributing to the standardization of technologies and protocols in ART labs. Currently, variation in practices and techniques can lead to inconsistent results and outcomes. Recognizing the importance of innovation in ART technologies the alliance aims to enhance progress and innovation in three ways: Firstly, the founding members aim to foster integration of multiple, leading fertility technologies. Secondly, building on this, the alliance will aim to collaborate with leading health care professionals and medical societies to develop global standards. And finally, as technologies in the fertility space are rapidly advancing, the alliance will also develop educational resources for health care professionals worldwide. These efforts will include training curricula and workshops as well as access to model labs, symposia and events at medical meetings.
