Sigma-Aldrich Corporation announced that it's custom manufacturing and services business unit, SAFC, has added more than 25 raw materials to its portfolio of PharmaGrade products. Launched earlier this year, the PharmaGrade portfolio is comprised of over 65 high-quality buffers, amino acids and specialty chemicals, addressing the need for greater supply chain transparency and enhanced risk management for biopharmaceutical manufacturing. PharmaGrade products come with a fully documented production history that highlights consistent and controlled processes compliant with GMP or SAFC ‘Elite’ grade documentation guidelines. All products in the portfolio feature formal manufacturer qualification, quality assurance review and release of every lot, change control notification, as well as quality and regulatory support documentation. For more information on the PharmaGrade portfolio and its complete listing of products, visit www.safcglobal.com/pharmagrade.
SAFC is able to offer raw materials that encourage quality by design in the early phases of development, while increasing users confidence in the raw materials they are using.
The April 2012 acquisition of Research Organics has enabled SAFC to increase its PharmaGrade offering, while complementing the company’s existing raw materials portfolio. The expanded manufacturing capacity made available by Research Organics also enables SAFC to provide customers with dual sourcing of biological buffers. With the addition of dedicated resources and increased capabilities to the PharmaGrade product line, the transition of Research Organics into SAFC has proven beneficial for customers and successful for SAFC.
