Only a few decades ago, the idea of harnessing biotechnology to produce medicines appeared highly fanciful. Why? Unlike conventional drug ingredients produced by purely chemical methods, biotechnologically produced medicines are much more complex and difficult to manufacture. Today, these drugs have become must-haves for the treatment of several serious diseases. Biotechnologically produced treatment tools are now available for several diseases (cancer in particular), providing a beacon of hope for thousands of patients.
Roche is No. 1 in the world in biotechnology. With its research, development and production sites across the globe, Roche offers doctors and patients alike a vast range of biopharmaceuticals and diagnostic tests manufactured using biotechnology. One biotechnology production site, located at our headquarters in Basel, is showcased in this video.
