EAST RUTHERFORD, US: Cambrex Corporation (CBM) to expand its pilot plant capabilities at its High Point, North Carolina facility with the installation of a fourth reactor suite. The $2.4 million investment will increase the site’s reactor capacity by around 30 percent.

The new 400 sq ft suite, which is being constructed to meet growing business demand, will feature two 2000 litre reactors and a 0.6 sq m Hastelloy filter dryer and is expected to be fully operational by early 2018.

In a second investment at the High Point site, Cambrex is to upgrade its analytical chromatography data systems for quality control and analytical R&D to new, Empower 3 software. Empower will be introduced in Q3 and Q4 of 2017 and will bring enhanced capability, integrity and compliance to the site’s analytical systems, in line with the increasingly stringent demands of the FDA and EMA among other agencies.

“This expansion will facilitate the scheduling of current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) campaigns for our customers and assist in meeting clinical deadlines. In addition, with the new filter dryer we will be able to run small scale batches to demonstrate their feasibility for scale-up,” said Brian Swierenga, VP, operations and site director, Cambrex High Point.
