Novo Holdings, a prominent global life science investor renowned for fostering groundbreaking enterprises, has injected a substantial sum of $290 million into Sangon Biotech. This strategic infusion of capital marks a pivotal juncture in Sangon Biotech’s journey, as the company gears up for diversification and an ambitious international expansion drive.

Novo Holdings, entrusted with the stewardship of valuable assets and wealth by the esteemed Novo Nordisk Foundation, has partnered with a consortium of illustrious investors including GL Capital, CPE, Greenwoods Asset Management, Huagai Capital, CDB Venture, China Merchant Health, and other key stakeholders. This collective financial endorsement is poised to propel Sangon Biotech’s visionary agenda, affording the company the resources to expand its product and service portfolio, accelerate research and development endeavors, foster talent cultivation, and extend its geographical footprint.

Sangon Biotech, a leading provider of cutting-edge research tools and services, stands at the forefront of China’s life science tools sector. Tracey Wang, the CEO of Sangon Biotech, expresses her palpable enthusiasm for this funding round, underscoring the caliber of investors that it has attracted. Leveraging its trailblazing status, Sangon Biotech is well-positioned to further enhance its capabilities, optimize production processes, and invest in pioneering technologies to seamlessly meet the evolving demands of a dynamic market.

With an illustrious history spanning almost three decades, Sangon Biotech has solidified its reputation as a trailblazer in China’s life sciences arena. The company’s extensive suite of products and services spans four pivotal categories: DNA synthesis, R&D reagents and consumables, genetic sequencing, and protein- and antibody-related products.

At the core of Sangon Biotech’s operations lies a robust infrastructure comprising 47 state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities sprawled across China. This expansive network supports a diverse clientele that encompasses over 7,000 academic institutions as well as an impressive array of more than 40,000 biotech, biopharma, and IVD (In Vitro Diagnostics) companies nationwide.
