Its partner Zhifei Biological is accelerating an expansion of its direct sales team to extend its reach.
Meningococcal Groups A and C and Haemophilus B Conjugate vaccine production lines of Beijing Zhifei Lvzhu Biopharmaceutical Co. Ltd., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Chongqing Zhifei Biological Products Co. Ltd., will be inspected onsite for GMP certification.
