The Center of Expertise in Biomanufacturing
The BioAccelerator represents an investment in strategic infrastructure that will enable the next decade of growth and development of the Atlantic Canada bioscience cluster.
The BioAccelerator will be a unique multi-function facility with 75,000 sq. ft. of biomanufacturing space that will provide facilities and services to researchers, entrepreneurs, and bioscience-based companies operating along the full continuum from research and product development, process development, manufacturing scale-up, and biomanufacturing skills and training.
The BioAccelerator will be operated by the PEI BioAlliance. It will be built in the BioCommons Research Park in Charlottetown, PEI. The BioAccelerator will become a centrepiece for biomanufacturing and fermentation-based business development in Atlantic Canada and a national asset.
Total footprint: 75,000 sq. ft.
15,000 sq. ft. of wet lab suites
15,000 sq. ft. of Pilot Plant Suites for process development and optimization (fermentation, natural product chemistry)
