NuSil Technology LLC (http://www.nusil.com), a leading formulator and manufacturer of silicone compounds for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, announces the completion of 2,400-square-feet of controlled manufacturing facilities that are environmentally controlled up to Class 10,000.
NuSil recently launched a comprehensive Drug Delivery Silicone (DDS) line of materials and services intended specifically for drug delivery and combination medical device products. These new and much larger facilities are a natural addition created to meet the healthcare industry's rapidly increasing need for a silicone manufacturer capable of compounding an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) into silicone. Featuring state-of-the-art equipment, these facilities processes a wide variety of silicones with a range of consistencies.
“In the last several years, we’ve seen an increase in demand from manufacturers of controlled release and combination products to compound and deliver silicones that contain APIs,” said Brian Reilly, NuSil Technology’s product director for healthcare materials. “As a direct result of that spike in interest, we felt it was time to make a capital investment in multiple facility expansions that would ensure all future compounding was done in a safe and controlled environment.”
These new clean rooms are registered with the U.S. FDA as well as the California State Health Department.
