Regis Expands Facilities to Support Rising Demand for U.S.-Based Custom API Pharmaceutical Development and Manufacturing
Regis | February 18, 2021
Regis Technologies, Inc. today reported the culmination of a significant extension of their laboratory facilities for the development of dynamic pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) situated in Morton Grove, Illinois. The extension, which pairs the organization's ability to take on new development projects, is currently completely operational. It expands capacities across Regis' custom pharmaceutical service contributions, including analytical development, process chemistry, solid state chemistry, validation, stability studies, and commercialization.
Regis works in serving the API development and assembling needs of medium sized and arising pharmaceutical and biotechnology organizations. Their blend of top notch, full-service CDMO contributions and individualized client consideration has energized developing demand for their services. The new lab extension activity was dispatched two years prior in light of this demand, empowering Regis to give the new limit something to do during this period of uncommon scarcity for U.S.- based exhaustive, experienced API development and assembling services.
The new 9,000-square-foot development incorporates extra process chemistry and analytical research centers, a committed ICP-MS suite, extra environment controlled capacity, 14 extra smoke hoods, a few new kilo-scale reactors, and process security hardware for reaction calorimetry estimations to guarantee safe control and scale-up. What's more, the new labs have an advanced variable air volume (VAV) air framework for clean energy-efficient operations.
“The boom in biotechnology firms developing novel small molecule drugs has contributed to our robust growth in recent years,” said Joe Miller, PhD, CTO at Regis Technologies. “We provide top quality end-to-end API development and manufacturing services for clinical-stage companies and for commercial-stage firms serving medium-sized, rare disease and other specialty markets. This focus enables us to provide a comprehensive range of services that are tailored to our customers’ individual needs.”
Dr. Miller continued, “Our investment in this new capacity broadens Regis’ capabilities and our flexibility to support the growing need for U.S.-based custom pharma services. The desire to reduce supply chain risk, ensure quality, and maintain intellectual property is driving a surging interest in domestic on-boarding of API development and manufacturing. This timely expansion allows us to meet this demand, enabling our scientists to support additional API projects as our customers advance their novel drugs to market.”
