Piramal Pharma Solutions, a provider of sterile drug product development and manufacturing services, has announced plans for a $25 million expansion of its facilities in Lexington, Kentucky.
Piramal Pharma Solutions’ plan focuses on expanding the Lexington site capabilities and capacity for commercial aseptic manufacturing. This will be done by increasing vial filling capability and lyophilisation capacity, as well as upgrades to the associated facilities and utilities.
Phase 1 of the expansion of the Lexington facility will add a new manufacturing suite including a high speed vial filling machine that provides controlled/safe environment for handling potent materials with an advantage of automated Vial Washing and Sterilization. Also as part of the first phase of expansion, Piramal will install a new isolator based vial filler in its existing manufacturing suite, which is a newer technology and considered much higher in quality standards.
Combined, the two fillers installed under Phase I of the expansion will increase the company’s vial filling capabilities by more than five-fold. Phase 2 of the expansion will include the installation of two state-of-the-art lyophilizers and are planned to integrate with the new filler line in the new manufacturing suite offering dedicated capacity for both potent and non-potent products.
