Quotient and GE Healthcare Extends Agreement to Complete Transfer into New Radiochemistry Facility in Cardiff
News Jan 28, 2010
An extension to the manufacturing transfer agreement that was put in place with GE Healthcare (GEHC) as part of the Quotient Bioresearch acquisition of Amersham Radiolabelling Services, the custom radiochemical synthesis operations of GE Healthcare, has now been agreed.
This extension will assure customers of a smooth transition and uninterrupted supply of carbon-14 labelled compounds during the move of Amersham Radiolabelling Services from the existing site to its new facility in Cardiff this Spring.
At the time of the acquisition in June 2009, Quotient formed its Chemistry & Metabolism business unit and announced a £15 million investment in a new facility in Cardiff. The facility will be equipped with world-class technology and operate to the highest environmental and safety standards. It will house the largest and most experienced team of radiosynthesis chemists in the world. Now, a timescale for completion and the transfer of production has been confirmed for Spring 2010.
Quotient’s ‘synthesis to clinic’ capability allows it to provide a seamless service from synthesis of a compound to clinical report for pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients engaged in studies containing radiolabelled compounds. This integrated service simplifies the procurement of regulatory and non-regulatory studies, resulting in shorter development times and associated efficiencies.

Improving Pharmaceuticals: Catalyst Specifically Tuned to Integrate Fluorine AtomsNews
In the race to create more potent and stable medicines, scientists know that adding fluorine can improve drug molecules. However, there is only one fluorination reaction known to occur in nature which is performed by complex and highly specialized enzymes that are difficult to replicate. Now, scientists have developed a new, streamlined molecule that can do the work of enzymes but be designed and controlled minutely.READ MORE
