, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- WuXi PharmaTech (Cayman) Inc. (NYSE: WX), a leading pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device R&D services company with operations in China and the United States, announced today that it has completed an expansion of its materials characterization testing facility in St. Paul, Minnesota.

A new 20,000-square-foot laboratory will offer expanded capacity for existing services, like particle identification and extractable/leachable testing, and add a new servicedynamic light scattering for nanoparticle characterization. These services are required by the FDA for filings of medical devices or biologics.

The new expanded laboratory will begin operation by the end of June.
