April 9, 2010

San Antonio Business Journal

DPT Laboratories Ltd. spent more than $30 million to upgrade its sterile pharmaceutical manufacturing capabilities in Lakewood, N.J.

The company invested in a new water system for injection, clean steam and HVAC systems and a new microbiology laboratory. The lab allows for in-house microbiology testing services, such as environmental monitoring, sterility testing using isolation technology, and endotoxin testing. The center also has pharmaceutical clean rooms and filling stations. DPT previously announced the expansion of the 175,000-square-foot center. However, the company is releasing new details.

The Lakewood, N.J. facility manufacture sterile forms of small volume parenterals, ophthalmic preparations, preservative-free nasal sprays and sterile ointments. Parenterals are a classification of drugs that are not absorbed through the body through the intestines.

This center will be supported by DPT’s Center of Excellence for Research & Development in San Antonio for pharmaceutical pre-formulation and formulation development services as well as analytical development services and technology transfers.

DPT is a San Antonio-based contract development and manufacturing organization. DPT serves drug companies.
