PII Opens Development and Aseptic Facility

Pharmaceutics International (PII, Hunt Valley, MD) opened a new 30,000-ft2 , state-of-the-art development, aseptic filling, and manufacturing facility. The new Beaver Court complex complements the three existing PII facilities in Hunt Valley and those of Pharmaterials (Reading, UK).

PII's development work has moved to dedicated manufacturing space in the new building. The area consists of multiple manufacturing and containment suites to perform development projects. This area will support projects before they enter production.

The aseptic facility provides vial filling for clinical supplies and niche commercial manufacturing. The filling line will initially fill small molecules and is designed to fill containment and high-potency products. A 60-ft2 lyophilizer was installed and qualified to produce lyophilized products.
