The site can manufacture high potency APIs and is certified by the independent SafeBridge program for potent compounds.

“Some of the life-saving products produced at Rensselaer are highly complex, including critical oncology therapeutics and novel treatments addressing unmet medical needs.” said John Ratliff, Curia CEO and chairman, in the press release. “The engineering and technology advances we have designed for the site will enhance our flexibility, efficiency, and scale, allowing us to meet our customers’ current and future complex manufacturing needs.”
