Compass Pharma Services LLC (Clifton, NJ) has completed a capital investment project to upgrade its contract pharmaceutical packaging capabilities to include ISO Class 8 (ISO 14644) specifications. The company packages solid-dose, liquid, and powder formulations into blister packaging, pouches, bottles, and cans.
The improvements include a fully integrated production suite where the primary packaging area has negative differential air pressure relative to surrounding gowning and secondary packaging areas. HEPA filters are deployed in the primary packaging area.
Contract packagers offer solutions for a tough climate.
Contract packagers add capacity for current and future business.
Providing one-stop solutions for “virtual companies” that lack packaging and manufacturing resources is a growth area for some packagers. These companies will often purchase older drugs on the downside of their life cycles, reformulate the ingredients, and intensively market them.
