Pace® Life Sciences continues to make investments to broaden their comprehensive suite of oral solid dose development offerings.
ANN ARBOR, Mich., December 19, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Pace® Life Sciences, a full-service contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) and a Division of Pace®, a Science and Technology Company, adds liquid capsule filling technology to their comprehensive suite of oral solid dose development offerings.
“This new liquid capsule filling technology not only enables us to broaden our support from early phase to late phase clinical trials but increases our capabilities for viscous formulations and overlaying oxygen sensitive products with nitrogen,” notes Pace® Site Head and Sr. Director, Lisa Z. Crandall.
The Lonza CFS 1200 Capsule Filling and Sealing Machine installed in the Pace® cGMP manufacturing facility in Ann Arbor, MI, increases throughput of hard-shell liquid-filled capsules to a nominal speed of 1,200 per hour. This equipment can provide accurate filling, from 0.1 to 1.2 mL, into various sizes of capsules. Liquid formulations filled into hard shell capsules allow for delivery of poorly water-soluble drugs in pre-dissolved or self-emulsifying forms improving oral bioavailability.
Rob Tuohy, Vice President of Pharmaceutical Development, added, “The addition of this technology completes our suite of services for supporting bioavailability enhancement of orally administered drugs. Between liquid capsule filling, spray drying, hot-melt extrusion, and nano-milling, we have all the tools necessary to enable our customers’ drug development programs.”
