Particle Sciences expands cGMP capabilities with thin films

Friday, June 15, 2012 09:09 AM

Particle Sciences, a drug delivery CRO of Bethlehem, Penn., has added new thin-film coating capabilities for preparing polymer film-based drug products from liquid formulations, under cGMPs.

“Increasingly, we are seeing a demand for thin film-based products, particularly with respect to transdermal drug-eluting patch products, and rapidly-dissolving strips,” said Garry Gwozdz, director of formulation services, Particle Sciences. “While we have been working in this area for some time, the acquisition of semi-automated coating equipment will allow us to screen more formulation approaches, and get our clients into the clinic faster with a commercially representative film-based product."

Particle Sciences focuses on BCS II/III/IV molecules, biologics and highly potent compounds through a variety of technologies including emulsions, gels, micro and nano-particulates, drug/device combination products, solid solutions and others.

Gwozdz added, "Particle Sciences already had cGMP hot-melt film extrusion capability and now with the addition of coating and drying capabilities for liquid-based formulations, our clients have access to a complete array of viable and scalable film-manufacturing technologies."
