Total Engineered Containment of Processes.

Our dedicated facility provides total engineered containment of processes with hard–wall isolation technologies.

  • Within the processing areas, there are no open processes, eliminating the need for powered air purifying respirators
  • Equipment and change parts are dedicated exclusively to the potent suite
  • Containment is achieved at levels of approximately 30 nanograms per cubic meter of room air

The unique design of our potent facility has been the subject of a number of articles, including industry publications like Pharmaceutical Technology and Specialty Chemical
