Admedus was chosen from over 40 other finalists to take out the major award on the night.
Admedus was also awarded ‘Most Innovative Manufacturing Company’ for its work in the research, manufacture and export of its lead regenerative tissue product CardioCel®, which is undertaken at the company’s state-of-the-art bio-manufacturing facility in Malaga, Western Australia.
Lee Rodne, managing director, commented: “We are extremely pleased to have been awarded Manufacturer of the Year and grateful to have been chosen from such a strong field.
"It is an honour to have our innovation and quality in manufacturing recognised by the industry.”
Admedus’ state-of-the-art bio-manufacturing facility was officially opened in August 2014 in order to support global demand for the company’s lead regenerative tissue product CardioCel.
CardioCel is developed using a high-tech engineering process called ADAPT®, whereby scientists treat a piece of animal pericardium (the heart covering membrane) to remove all RNA, DNA and remnants of cells to produce an off-the-shelf, ready to use collagen bio-scaffold that functions like human tissue.
The Admedus bio-manufacturing facility is equipped with in-house research and development labs, which allows Admedus scientists to work closely with the manufacturing team to refine CardioCel, as well as develop and distribute a portfolio of regenerative tissue products for soft tissue repair in the future.
Rodne added: “Admedus continues to invest in our Malaga bio-manufacturing facility to ensure expanded production based on global demand for CardioCel, as well as refine and develop current processes to accommodate for new products and product improvements.”
