News May 16, 2015
Sigma-Aldrich Corporation’s custom manufacturing business unit, SAFC® Commercial (www.sigma-aldrich.com/safc) has announced the strategic expansion of its existing facility in Carlsbad, Calif.
The investment will further enable SAFC to offer clinical and commercial bulk drug production, as well as fill/finish of viral products for its gene therapy, viral vaccine and immunotherapy customers.
“Gene therapy is an emerging technology, and our SAFC and BioReliance® sites in Carlsbad, Rockville, and Glasgow have supported this growing industry for years,” said Gilles Cottier, President of SAFC. “This investment is pivotal to our customers and reflects SAFC’s continued dedication to providing the infrastructure customers need to bring their drugs to market.”
The expanded Carlsbad facility complements a global footprint of GMP services in the virus and gene therapy segment, including cell banking in Rockville, Md., and manufacturing in the Glasgow location in Scotland, U.K. The investment was driven by continued interest in targeted gene therapies for indications such as hemophilia and cancer immunotherapies (CAR-T cells).
