(PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Patheon Inc., a leading provider of contract development and commercial manufacturing services to the global pharmaceutical industry, today announced plans for additional investment in its Milton Park facility. Located in Oxfordshire, UK, Milton Park is a dedicated pharmaceutical development services facility focused on early development projects.
As part of its early stage offerings, Milton Park currently provides proof-of-concept and first-in-man development programs for oral dose forms. It also offers Quick to Clinic™, which provides clinical trial materials as fast as four months from receipt of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API). This service has been structured to provide support to emerging pharmaceutical companies with promising molecules.
With the first phase of additional investment to Patheon’s Milton Park facility, the company will be able to expand upon the early development capabilities currently being offered, including the introduction of the SoluPath™ program. SoluPath™ is the first fixed-price, multi-platform solution to improve bioavailability that allows parallel formulation screening using multiple leading edge technologies to review aqueous, lipid-based and solid state formulations. The result is a unique formulation development program for low solubility/bioavailability molecules, which should facilitate a faster route to the clinic. The purchase of a new HME screening tool and spray–drier will supplement existing technologies at Milton Park to provide the SoluPath™ service to emerging pharmaceutical companies with poorly soluble molecules.
