Laureate Pharma opens pilot plant in Princeton, NJ

Facility Will Develop, Produce and Purify Early-Phase Pre-Clinical Proteins

30-Mar-2007

Laureate Pharma announced that it has formally opened its newly constructed Pilot Plant in Princeton, NJ for pre-clinical biopharmaceutical manufacturing. The plant is now available for early engineering runs and production of product for uses such as formulation and toxicological testing.

The pilot plant is designed for process development, production and purification of early-phase preclinical proteins. The facility also features two separate production suites and two expanded purification suites to support pre-clinical production of recombinant proteins from mammalian-cell culture. The suites mimic Laureate's already existing cGMP production facility and equipment. The pilot plant includes both stainless-steel, stirred-tank bioreactors and disposable, single-use bioreactors - the same technologies used in Laureate's larger scale, cGMP manufacturing facility. The purification suites also feature the same process chromatography and filtration technologies used in the cGMP facility.

"The equipment in our pilot plant facility is designed to facilitate a direct, seamless scale-up from development to cGMP production for our clients' projects," said Robert Broeze, PhD, Laureate's President and CEO. "With the new pilot plant in operation, we can accelerate our manufacturing of pre-clinical material and save on several months worth of critical product development time."
