"Our customers are increasingly seeking specialized partners in early-stage compound assessments and product design, with poor dissolution and/or solubility often being at the forefront of their challenges," said Amit Patel, Sr. Vice President, Capsugel. "Micronization and nano-milling technology is a significant component of Capsugel's overall service offering, and this investment further strengthens our ability to rapidly advance challenging compounds to clinic and ultimately commercialization."
In addition to enabling increased capacity, the added suites will feature new state-of-the-art, single-use containment technologies to accommodate continued growth in potent and highly potent compounds. The new equipment and suites are scheduled to be operational by January 2017.
"One of the many reasons we were eager to join Capsugel was the opportunity to become a part of its unique design, development and manufacturing offering," said Wayne Sigler, President, Powdersize, a division of Capsugel. "This investment further supports the role of micronization and sub-micronization in compound assessments and product design through commercialization, bringing more benefits to our customers. It also enables us to stay ahead of rising customer demand, so we can help our customers meet aggressive development and clinical timelines."
