Latest development at PCI Dublin site positions it at forefront of EU operations, supporting European expansion and robust Brexit plan for continuity of pharmaceutical supply


Philadelphia, PA – August 27, 2019 – PCI Pharma Services (PCI), a leading biopharmaceutical outsourcing services provider, has solidified its leadership position in the EU with strategic investment to deepen its presence in Ireland and expand its European foothold. PCI has announced investment in a new dedicated state-of-the art Clinical facility near Dublin, Ireland which will significantly increase capabilities and capacity for its Clinical Services business as a part of its overall global network expansion strategy. On completion, the building will provide more than 75,000 sq ft of space, serving as a key primary and secondary packaging, storage, logistics and distribution center. The expansion will take place over the coming months and will bring additional controlled room temperature and cold chain storage capabilities for PCI customers, as well as Clinical packaging services.

This new investment will complement PCI’s already established footprint in Dublin, Ireland following the acquisition of Millmount Healthcare in 2017. The facility, which is licensed by HPRA, also offers Clinical storage and distribution (S&D) for the shipment of Investigational Medicinal Products (IMP) to sites based both within the EU and globally. Additional services at the site include cold chain handling, packaging and storage capabilities for clinical and commercial products and Serialization capability as well as a full analytical release testing laboratory. Since the acquisition / establishing its presence in Ireland, PCI has debuted a state-of-the-art dedicated high containment packaging facility specializing in commercial primary and secondary packaging for all solid oral dose forms including specialized and high potent products.

Commenting on this latest investment, PCI Chief Executive Officer Salim Haffar said: “Our growth strategy is focused on the continued expansion of our global network to support growing demand from our customers and providing a solution for Brexit through ongoing investment in capacity, capability expansion and talent.

Antibody Internalization: Advanced Flow Cytometry and Live-Cell Analysis Give Rich Insights During Antibody Profiling

Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), in particular, deliver promising therapeutic results in several different disease areas, such as autoimmunity, oncology, and chronic inflammation. Researchers’ abilities to improve the breadth of antibodies have been aided by innovative technologies for antibody discovery, for instance, through humanization of mouse antibodies and phage display. However, advanced antibody design techniques create the need for new screening methods so that lead candidates can be quickly and effectively identified as early in the development process as possible.
