This state-of-the-art facility, set up at an investment of USD 3Mn, is located at the Mallapur Campus in Hyderabad and spans over 12,000 square feet area. It is equipped to support the clinical manufacturing of a wide range of dosage forms, including oral solids, liquids, topicals, and films. Aragen's investment in this facility is a testament to its dedication to advancing pharmaceutical research and development and is synergistic to its well-established pre-formulation capabilities.
Manni Kantipudi, CEO, Aragen Life Sciences, commented "We are thrilled to announce the commissioning of our new formulations manufacturing facility in Hyderabad. This state-of-the-art facility represents a major milestone in Aragen's journey, reinforcing our commitment to innovation and excellence. With this expansion, we can offer our customers an even broader range of services, from early-stage development to clinical manufacturing, all from a co-located facility. We look forward to leveraging these capabilities to support our customers' drug development needs, enabling them to bring life-changing medicines to patients worldwide."
Key highlights of the facility include:
This expansion enhances Aragen's New Chemical Entity (NCE) early-stage development offerings and provides greater flexibility to meet customers' clinical supply needs in various dosage forms. Aragen can now support its customers' clinical programs as an integrated end-to-end service provider, from Drug discovery to Phase I-III clinical supply of tablets, capsules, liquids, semisolids, and films to patients in the clinic.
Aragen has been offering Formulation R&D services from its 10,000 sq ft research facility since 2018. The setting up of the Formulation manufacturing facility is a forward integration strategy to further strengthen its overall position as a ‘one-stop solution provider’ for the life sciences industry.
