30 Jan 2020

Vetter has increased development capacity by bringing all its laboratories together into its 1,800 square metre Ravensburg site in Germany, the contract manufacturing and development organisation (CDMO) said Thursday.

Services at Ravensburg include process development as well as functional and specification testing of packaging systems, chemical-analytical and biochemical analysis and particle characterization.

Prior to the bundling of its laboratories, the development studies and the corresponding analytical services for testing during process or packaging material development took place in several labs at different locations in Ravensburg and Langenargen, Vetter said.

It added that processes have been synchronized and handling issues reduced by sequencing these services.

Expansion will continue within the building this year and includes more lab space and additional innovative analytical equipment and lyophilizer capacity.

“Our customers are excited and impressed with the new and modern development laboratories and their increased capacity. Now they can follow a complete development process and its individual steps, since it proceeds throughout the labs, all within the same building,” said Dr Claus Feussner, Senior Vice President, Development Service at Vetter.

Vetter said it is also committed to further process optimization and capacity expansion in filling and secondary packaging of injectables at all its sites, based on increased global demand for the development and commercialization of new compounds.
