Almac Announce Potent Containment Capabilities

October 15, 2009

Addressing the continuing pharmaceutical market trend of manufacturing medication in smaller but more potent doses, Almac has successfully completed the design, manufacture and installation of state-of-the-art containment technology to facilitate the processing of potent compounds in our Product Development facility.

Our in-house engineered containment solutions employ rigid & flexible film Isolator technology around the processing zones of equipment that require containment of airborne particulates. Extensive dust monitoring exercises have determined the effectiveness of these containment solutions; and demonstrate Almac can process compounds with an OEL as low as 30 ng per m3.

We have the capability to process batch sizes ranging from 0.1Kg to 100Kg, manufacturing development, clinical & small-scale commercial solid, oral dose products.

Almac is dedicated to continually developing processes and technologies, to remain at the forefront of innovation and to offer a comprehensive outsourcing service to our clients.
