BUBENDORF, Switzerland (27 Aug 2021) — Switzerland-based CARBOGEN AMCIS, a pharmaceutical process development and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) and drug products manufacturing company, announced today the signing of a co-investment agreement with one of its key European customers.
The agreement provides for additional process capabilities and capacities to facilitate the manufacture of the customer’s commercial product and is following a previous investment of CHF 6 million.
The recent co-investment totals CHF 4 million and will be dedicated to expanding capacities and supporting the market introduction of the key customer’s lead compound. The investment includes the additions to the CARBOGEN AMCIS Neuland site of a medium pressure chromatography column (200L), a preparative 20 cm HPLC system and short path distillation equipment.
