Recro Gainesville Adds New Facility, Broadens Capabilities With High-Potent Processing on Deck

Gainesville, Ga., Nov. 5, 2018 (Business Wire) – Recro Gainesville has added a 24,000-square-foot facility, which includes high-potent material processing space, near its existing 97,000-square-foot contract pharmaceutical development and manufacturing plant. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Recro Pharma, Inc., and a leading provider of solid oral dose development and manufacturing services for the pharmaceutical industry.

The expanded capabilities will allow Recro Gainesville to provide clients with a broader range of contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) services, from benchtop through commercialization. Clients can obtain manufacturing services ranging from formulation and development through clinical trial material (CTM) production for Phase I and beyond.

In addition, a specialized area within the new site will be opened by the end of the year to support clients with development through commercialization for high-potency compounds, a rapidly expanding category of pharmaceuticals, which includes many immune modulation and anti-cancer agents.

“The new square footage allows for early feasibility studies, enabling clients to quickly determine the best formulation path forward at laboratory scale, and subsequent scale-up to the GMP manufacture of CTMs,” said Scott Rizzo, general manager of Recro Gainesville. “This added development capability will save our clients both time and resources.”

“Also, by adding high-potency capabilities, we are continuing to provide our clients with the most comprehensive, highest-quality services in the business,” added Heather N. Sugrue, VP sales and marketing.

The existing Recro Gainesville site is a GMP, DEA-licensed CDMO facility that encompasses an oral dosage formulation, process and analytical development space as well as GMP drug product manufacturing facilities for product development, clinical trial materials and commercial finished product.

Detecting Integrity Breaches in a range of Pharmaceutical Blister Package Types using Sepha VisionScan

Sepha Limited

Demonstrating the integrity of pharmaceutical blister packs is critically important, as any defects can affect the shelf life and efficacy of the contents. Compared to bulk packaging, blister packs offer improved product integrity, tamper evidence and reduce the likelihood of misuse. Packs can be composed of either a thermoformed polymer or cold formed aluminium tray, with a number of individual pockets to hold the product. After the tablets or capsules are placed in the pockets, the packs are heat sealed with a paper or foil laminate sheet. These various stages can be completed separately or integrated into a single form, fill and seal process. There is a risk of microbial containment or degradation of the contents if any defects are present in the packaging. Such defects can take the form of rips or pinholes in the tray, or lid materials, faulty seals and channel leaks between pockets.
