NKCL Bio Group, which has consistently contributed to the development of the bio industry in South Korea, plans to continue its dedication to R&D through ongoing investments. This commitment extends not only to the domestic market but also to the global arena, focusing on the development of diverse technologies utilizing Natural Killer Cells (NK Cells).
Chairman Shin Dong-hwa of NKCL Bio Group expressed, "Winning the 'Minister of Food and Drug Safety Award' in the R&D Management category as a bio company brings us immense honor. We will lead the field of NK Cells by developing next-generation anticancer therapies utilizing these vital immune system components and establishing a GMP automation system for their mass production. Through this, we aim to enhance national competitiveness and contribute to the growth potential of the Korean economy."
Furthermore, under the strategy of targeting the global market with a more scalable model for the automated cultivation system, NKCL Bio Group has introduced the 'RK-NKTM ACS,' a single-user automated cultivation device for NK Cells. As a result, NKCL anticipates that significant bio sales will be generated through the 'RK-NKTM ACS' in 2023.
Chairman Shin Dong-hwa explained, "NKCL Bio Group has recently achieved the technological capability to regulate cell activity, including immune suppression, tumor variability, and the diversity of cancer manifestations, taking into account the complexities of cancer. Unlike conventional treatment methods, this allows us to adjust cell activity to suit the patient."
