Mississauga, ON, May 6, 2016 - Therapure Biopharma Inc. (“Therapure”) today was delighted to host the Honourable Bill Morneau, Federal Minister of Finance; the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Federal Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development; Mayor Bonnie Crombie of Mississauga; MP Gagan Sikand; MP Iqra Khalid; MP Peter Fonseca; MP Sven Spengemann; MPP Bob Delaney; other government officials and distinguished guests at its state-of-the-art biologics manufacturing facility.

“We were delighted to host the delegation today, who recognized us as one of the country’s most successful growth companies in the innovation and manufacture of biologics. It was a great opportunity to demonstrate how the contribution under the Advanced Manufacturing Fund (AMF) is being used to develop our PlasmaCap&trade technology and scale-up to clinical manufacture of plasma proteins.” said Nick Green, President and CEO of Therapure.

PlasmaCap™ EBA technology yields more protein from the same amount of plasma, and separates the proteins faster, and at lower cost than existing processes used worldwide.
