Metrics Expands with Fast-Track Development Laboratory


PTSM: Pharmaceutical Technology Sourcing and Management
Volume 10, Issue 3

Metrics is opening a new laboratory to better support fast-track development of pharmaceutical products in Greenville, NC. The new $1.6 million, 4,524 ft2 facility provides additional flexibility for early formulation and analytical method development. The facility is designed for preclinical development of early formulation prototypes and related analytical methods. In this laboratory setting, formulators and chemists will have significant autonomy to conduct development activities more quickly, according to the company.

The new processing suites will have independent HVAC systems and engineering controls such as interlocking airlock doors, room air pressure differentials, high-volume room air turnover, and 100% HEPA air filtration.The ground floor of the new facility consists of five processing rooms and one analytical laboratory. The second floor consists of workstations, office space, and a conference room. The new facility was expected to be fully operational by mid-February.
