Velesco Pharma Expands With the Opening of a New Laboratory
News Aug 05, 2016
Velesco Pharma has further expanded its capabilities for materials management by opening a new laboratory in its Plymouth, Mich., facility. The new laboratory will be largely utilized for the storage, dispensing, inventory management and distribution of non-GMP materials such as API, intermediates and compounds transitioning into development. This addition of increased compound management capacity and capabilities is in response to the needs of Velesco's expanding client base.
The company has analysis and formulation expertise to support this compound management activity. Complementing the current cGMP material storage and dispensing operation in Velesco’s Kalamazoo, Mich., facility, this new laboratory space enables Velesco to provide compound management services for materials with either cGMP or non-GMP requirements.
These services include long- and short-term storage of materials at ambient, refrigerated or frozen temperatures as well as material aliquoting over a wide weight range, along with labeling and distribution.
“Our newly expanded materials management laboratory is well suited to meet our client’s increasing need for the storage, analysis and the handling of compounds in the early stage of development,” said Dave Barnes, Ph.D., chief executive officer at Velesco. “We look forward to collaborating with our clients to efficiently provide the quality services to which they have become accustomed.”
Many life-saving medicines, including insulin, antibodies and vaccines, are derived from living cells. These “biologics” can be difficult to obtain and store on the battlefield or in remote areas. That’s why scientists are trying to develop portable systems that can quickly manufacture small batches of protein therapeutics on demand.READ MORE
