BioVectra Inc., a global Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), today announced new investments in its large-scale synthetic chemistry and analytical development capabilities. To continue serving its client’s cGMP manufacturing needs, BioVectra completed the replacement of two 4,000L vessels used for small molecule synthesis.
“These vessels have been very important for advancing our clients’ programs into later-stage clinical trials,” said Matt Frizzle, BioVectra’s Director of Business Development, CMO Services. “They are highly critical when larger quantities of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) are needed and, in particular, through commercial supply.” For earlier stages of research, BioVectra operates several cGMP kilo labs, with access to reactors in the range of 30-800L.
Additionally, BioVectra announced an enhancement of its analytical capabilities through the purchase of new equipment. “These investments help ensure our process development team has adequate control and specifications to meet regulatory requirements,” said Dr. Marc Sauer, BioVectra’s Vice President of Research and Development. BioVectra’s suite of analytical equipment will be bolstered with the addition of two UPLCs and five HPLCs, two Charged Aerosol Detectors (CAD), two single quad mass detectors, a XRPD unit, an ICP-MS, a particle surface area and a DSC/TGA instrument.
Combined these investments were in the order of $1.5M, and were made to enhance BioVectra’s overall API service offering to our global biotechnology and pharmaceutical partners.
