Eckert & Ziegler has received an updated radioactive material license for their production facility in Boston, MA, USA. In addition to the production of Yttrium-90, the site will produce other medical isotopes and offer various services for the manufacturing and development of radiopharmaceuticals. This includes contract manufacturing and CMC services as well as GMP Suites, up to 15.000 sq. ft. of licensed radiation laboratories for pre-clinical development and production of clinical trial charges under (c)GMP conditions.
“The revised RAML further increases our production capacity and capabilities to offer CMO services to both US and international customers from our Boston facility” stated Jay R. Simon, Managing Director of Eckert & Ziegler Radiopharma, Inc and responsible for the Boston site. “Apart from further upscaling of our Yttrium-90 production, it also enables our team to work with the medical radioisotopes in the greatest demand including Ac-225 and Lu-177. By this we are able to support innovative companies in their activities to access the markets.”
“Besides the provision of local infrastructure, it is our goal to offer services to customers and partners on an international level” added Dr. Lutz Helmke, Executive Director and COO of the Medical segment. “The updated license perfectly supports this as we continue to move closer to the specifications of our established German site in Braunschweig. This further facilitates our partners to transfer their clinical programs internationally and to mirror manufacturing processes at the different Eckert & Ziegler sites.”
To meet the increasing demand for radiopharmaceutical substances, Eckert & Ziegler extensively invests in its production sites. Two new facilities are under construction in Jintan, China and Berlin, Germany. The existing sites in Braunschweig, Germany and Boston, USA are updated with additional manufacturing equipment. This will enable the company to be a comprehensive radiopharmaceutical contract manufacturer for phase I, II and III clinical scale products and commercial use.
