Project is centered around drug substance manufacturing
Quotient Sciences, a drug development and manufacturing accelerator, has completed the expansion of its drug substance manufacturing facility in Alnwick, UK. The $6.8 million project has resulted in a state-of-the-art drug substance manufacturing capability that can offer integrated support for customers, from candidate selection through to early clinical development and beyond.
The expansion delivers multipurpose capacity of up to 15 good manufacturing practice (GMP) reactor streams, with reactor volumes ranging from five liters up to 150 liters, and tactical deployment of batch or continuous flow chemistry technologies to optimize drug substance manufacturing processes. The facility has been designed adopting Industry 4.0 principles, with the inclusion of a predictive process control system (PharmaMV) improving the transfer from small-scale process research and development (PR&D) into manufacture of multi-kilogram quantities of drug substance for clinical use.
“Since acquiring the Alnwick facility in 2021, our objective has been to incorporate drug substance services into our integrated Translational Pharmaceutics platform combining drug product manufacturing and clinical testing," explains Mark Egerton, PhD, CEO of Quotient Sciences. "By working with customers at the point of candidate nomination, we can now design the most streamlined programs and significantly accelerate their development timelines.”
