Detroit, MI (PRWEB) February 8, 2008
Ash Stevens Inc.™ (ASI), a developer of high quality, small-molecule Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), upgraded its Riverview, Mich. manufacturing facility with new state-of-the-art equipment.
ASI installed a new Bruker Biospin 400 MHz Avance III nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) instrument. Equipped with a dual proton/carbon-13 probe, the NMR will enable the company's chemists to rapidly obtain detailed analytical and structural information. In addition, ASI will place its third Rosenmund filter-dryer online in 2008. The filter-dryer will be equipped with glove-box technology for handling potent and air sensitive cGMP APIs in a contained environment.

"With more than 45 years of experience and 11 FDA approvals to manufacture innovator APIs, Ash Stevens has earned a reputation as the premier provider of quality contract pharmaceutical manufacturing services for specialized APIs."
