Our newly expanded Pilot
Plant has enabled us to provide our customers with a seamless transfer of
processes from laboratory to clinical trials manufacture. In particular we
offer three scales of spray dryer, all of which can also be operated in our GMP
plant. Spray dryers in our pilot plant include:
4M8-TriX spray dryer
Intermediate spray dryer
Niro Mobile Minor
These spray driers
can spray dry a range of batch sizes (from 10mg to 3kg), allowing Upperton to
conduct feasibility studies at scale to enable rapid transfer and reduce risk
on scale up.
