PCI Pharma to Open New Sterile Fill-Finish Facility in USA


PCI Pharma Services plans to open newest sterile fill-finish facility in USA. 


The facility will enhance capacity with Annex 1-compliant technology, featuring an aseptic fill-finish line within a fully isolated containment system, and equipped with twin 430-square-foot lyophilizers with automatic loading and unloading systems. 

The new high-volume lyophilisation and liquid filling facility will add to the ability to provide full product lifecycle management from formulation and lyo cycle development through clinical stages and large commercial-scale sterile manufacturing.

The integrated filler will manufacture batch sizes up to 300,000 vials at a rate of up to 400 vials per minute, providing significant capacity for the filling of late-phase clinical and commercial small molecules and biologics. This includes high-value drug products such as mAbs, oligonucleotides, fusion proteins, and peptides.

The new facility is slated for completion in late fall, with GMP production expected to commence in Q1 2025.
