May 29, 2012 -- Norwich focuses on manufacturing potent, solid dose products,
including fast dissolve and controlled release tablets, while also
providing a range of analytical services in-house.
To survive in a highly competitive marketplace, all contract
manufacturers must address the reality of potent compound safety.
The result of improper handling of potent compounds can not only
impede a drug’s release to market, but also may cause serious
adverse health effects in employees who handle the drug.
Norwich’s leadership in the area of proper handling of potent
compounds was recently tested when a customer presented
a challenging process that required potent compound handling
with the added complexity of flammable solvents. They took on the
challenge and successfully designed, built and qualified a nitrogen
blanketing system that provides fail-safe protection for handling
hazardous compounds with solvents, which also can be leveraged
in several other applications.
Norwich recognizes that protecting their customers’ drug-to-market
timelines is its top priority and by proactively taking steps to prevent
and control exposure, they ensured the health of their team too.
