The contract research, development, and manufacturing organization (CRDMO) has made investments globally to expand its scale and compound handling capabilities. The expansion includes additional suites at its Albany, NY, facility that meet good manufacturing practice (GMP) requirements and are designed to manufacture batch sizes of 10-15 kg.
At its Grafton, WI, location, the company has added liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry instruments in expanded laboratory space. AMRI is also adding expert teams at its facilities in Albany, Grafton, and Glasgow, Scotland.
Rare diseases are conditions that affect a limited population, defined in the U.S. as fewer than 200,000 people and in the European Union as fewer than one in 2,000 people.
