Alcami, announced, Wednesday 19 september, an additional $31 million investment to expand its sterile development and manufacturing operation in Charleston, SC.

The investment will add a second production line consisting of a vial washer and depyrogenation tunnel, with an isolator filling line containing two lyophilizers, substantially increasing fill-finish and lyophilization capacity.

In addition to the new production line, investment has been made in enhanced semi-automated visual inspection equipment to support the additional manufacturing capacity. The new equipment will be qualified and ready for contract cGMP manufacturing in 2022.
