LSP BioVentures leads $10 million Series C investment in BioProcessors

Amsterdam, August 8th, 2007

LSP BioVentues announces today that it has lead the closing of a $10 million Series C equity investment round in BioProcessors Corporation, the leading provider of micro-engineered solutions for biopharmaceutical process development applications for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. LSP joined existing investors Oxford Bioscience Partners, HLM Venture Partners, Healthcare Ventures, and New Science Ventures who also participated in this financing round.

BioProcessors’ SimCell™ platform is the first fully-integrated cell culture experiment management system for bioprocess development capable of generating data scalable to large-scale bioreactors.

In addition to increased efficiency, SimCell also provides better data quality, reduces risk and lowers operating costs associated with conventional processing methods. This market leading system is coupled with proprietary software that allows for the robust storage and analysis of the large experimental data sets generated by the platform. BioProcessors’ clients include leading biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies such as Amgen, Novo Nordisk and Invitrogen.
