With her vast industry experience, she will be key to bringing the same standard of excellence associated with our complex formulation development work into our commercial drug product manufacturing offering."
Particle Sciences has also continued to invest in equipment and software by purchasing a dedicated pre-filled syringe filler for both clinical and commercial manufacturing and purchasing and validating a Waters NuGenesis Laboratory and Secure Data Management System to further enhance the compliance of laboratory systems. The new facility was built to accommodate the production of complex sterile and non-sterile finished drugs, such as injectables and lyophilized drugs. It forms part of a wider investment by Lubrizol LifeSciences to strengthen its key capabilities, focusing on new product solutions, capacity expansion and additional commercial manufacturing.
Over the last three years Particle Sciences has grown its workforce and will continue to grow the team as it expands and develops its manufacturing capabilities.
