Hoffmann-La Roche’s company site in Basel is also home to Building 98. International experts from the ISPE (International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering) recently presented the Facility of the Year 2020 Award in the Equipment Innovation category to this laboratory building, which was completed in June 2019.
The Equipment Innovation Category was awarded to F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd for its New In-Vivo Building in Basel, Switzerland. This project brings innovation to one of the lesser understood parts of the pharmaceutical discovery and development process – the animal research facility. The equipment innovation that is found in every part of the project aims to protect researchers and animals, drive efficiency, and set new industry standards for animal research.
