Juniper Pharma Services Expands Spray-Drying Capabilities
Juniper Pharma Services, a Nottingham, UK-based contract development and manufacturing organization and subsidiary of Juniper Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is expanding its spray-drying capabilities. The company has placed an order for a PSD-1 spray dryer, which is manufactured by GEA Niro.
To date, the company has provided bench-top scale spray drying to support clients' early phase proof-of-concept trials. This investment will allow Juniper Pharma Services to scale up the process to support later clinical phases and niche commercial scale.
Designed for both aqueous and solvent based formulations, spray drying forms a key part of the company's broad enabling technologies screening platform. It extends the company’s current spray-drying capabilities by around 10 times, and will mimic the processing performance and controls of full-scale production equipment.
