Dow Chemical and Cambrex have opened a new facility for Dow’s hydroxypropyl methylcellulose acetate succinate (HPMCAS) for drug solubility enhancement at Cambrex’s site in karlskoga, Sweden. The Cambrex Karlskoga expansion began in early 2013.

The facility completion and start of the HPMCAS product validation is part of the solubilization partnership between Dow and Bend Research, announced in October 2012. Beginning in 2014, Dow will be able to commercially supply solubility enabling excipients.
