Bhd., and has set up Asia’s largest integrated insulins manufacturing facility at an investment of over USD 250 million, which is the highest foreign investment in Malaysia’s biotech sector till date. Biocon Malaysia currently employs a team of over 400 people at this state-of-the-art facility. The facility is located within BioXcell, a biotech park in Nusajaya, Johor, which is being promoted by the Malaysian government. This is Biocon’s first overseas biopharma manufacturing and research facility.
The facility manufactures the Drug Substance for Biocon’s range of rh-insulin and insulin analogs as well as Drug Products in vials, cartridges and devices. It has received the cGMP certification from the National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau (NPCB), Malaysia. The rh-Insulin formulations (Brand Name: Insugen®-R, Insugen®-N and Insugen®-30/70) manufactured at this facility have been approved by the Drug Control Authority, Ministry of Health, Malaysia. The product registrations in various emerging markets and regulated markets for rh-insulin and insulin analogs are in progress.

The company is developing an insulin analogs portfolio for other developed markets like US and Europe. Biocon has also entered into an agreement with Mexico's Laboratorios PiSA to develop and commercialize its rh-Insulin in the US market.
