The Technology Center, which opened in May 2012, has added new ICP-MS, GC-MS, LC-MS, UPLC and HPLC systems to its instrumentation and capabilities. A Malvern Mastersizer 3000 particle size analyzer was added to support preformulation and material testing services.
The company also added a ProteinSimple MFI 5200 micro-flow imaging system, a Wyatt Dawn Heleos II multi-angle laser light scattering (MALS) detector and a Wyatt DynaPro NanoStar dynamic light scattering (DLS) detector to support biopharma development services, as well as a ProteinSimple iCE3 capillary IEF to further support protein analyses.
AAIPharma also expanded its extractable and leachable (E&L) testing services to evaluate and qualify the materials used in the manufacturing process and final product configuration. New capabilities include a Foss Soxtec 2050 automated extraction system to enable reproducible and robust methodologies.
