Labs Opened in Science Park
Turin - The Bracco Group, an Italian biopharmaceutical company, has recently opened a new location in the Italian region of Piedmont. The new site at the BioIndus-try Park Canavese near Turin comprises laboratories for exploratory research into new diagnostic imaging procedures. Furthermore, two pilot plants for the industrialisation of medical diagnosis contrast media production processes are planned. The Canavese Park was formed in 1988 to promote public and private-sector co-operations.
The new dual location is another important enhancement to the Bracco R&D system in Italy: this network began with the Research Centre in Milan and now includes the laboratories for new forms of drug delivery at the Science Park in Trieste, the Molecular Biology Laboratory at the San Raffaele Biomedical Science Park in Milan and the Materials Engineering Laboratory at the Technology Park in Naples.
