JSC Binnopharm is one of Russia's largest full-cycle biopharmaceutical companies and the company boasts an in-house R&D division. Binnopharm produces biotechnological drugs, including a hepatitis B vaccine, a line of pulmonology and neurology drugs, infusion solutions, and anti-viral and immunomodulating drugs.

Binnopharm operates Russia's largest GMP facilities for the production of vaccines in ampoules (producing as many as 80 mln ampoules per year) and a unique, fully equipped quality control laboratory.

The target segments of Binnopharm’s portfolio are pulmonology, neurology, antiviral and immunomodulating drugs. Modern production facilities allow the company to produce a wide range of dosage forms, including tablets, capsules, ampoules, suppositories, syringes and solutions.

Binnopharm's production facilities include two pharmaceutical plants: Binnopharm in the Zelenograd district of Moscow and Alium in the Krasnogorsk district of the Moscow region.

The company is focused on expansion in the commercial segment of the market, while maintaining limited sales of hospital products.

A total of over 30 drugs are in development and are expected to be released in 2019-2021.
