Innovative entrepreneurship still characterizes the traditional pharmaceutical site today. Since 1992, the Sächsisches Serumwerk, a subsidiary of GlaxoSmithKline, has been the Group’s sole European production site for the development, production, and supply of influenza vaccines.
Since the H1N1 outbreak in 2009, GSK Biologicals in Dresden is known around the world for producing the influenza vaccine Influsplit SSW® / Fluarix®.
Outside the pharmaceutical industry, a wide spectrum of LifeScience enterprises has settled in Dresden ranging from bio-nanotechnology over tissue engineering and bio-informatics to core-biotechs.
These companies, which are currently working in Dresden, concentrate on the medical application of modern Life Sciences: 'red' biotechnology. There is a balance between core biotech companies and regional firms in the supply and services industry; thus, the Dresden region has the highest concentration of pharmaceutical companies in Saxony.
