October 9, 2013

Aesica expands aseptic capabilities at its Nottingham, UK site with the acquisition of new pre-filled syringes manufacturing equipment.

The CDMO Aesica is expanding its aseptic capabilities at its site in Nottingham, United Kingdom with new prefilled syringes manufacturing equipment capable of processing 5000 units/batch. The equipment is currently undergoing validation through process simulation trials. The company’s total investment is more than £500,000 ($797,395), and completion of the validation process is expected to be completed by January 2014. The company’s new equipment also enables production of other product forms, such as pen and cartridge syringes and nasal devices. Over the next three years, Aesica is targeting production of 900,000 units and is in advanced discussions with one company for the scale-up of a clinical trial product for which a joint validation is pending.
