Biologics development continues to grow and companies are continually looking to become more efficient navigating from discovery of therapeutics through to IND submission and the ultimate goal of commercial manufacturing and release. Outsourcing support is becoming a bigger piece of the biologics development puzzle as companies begin to rely more on the expertise, experience, and platform assays that contract research organizations have available. Charles River is motivated and dedicated to partnering with clients to accelerate their development timelines, and in this respect we are always investing in our laboratories and staff to make sure we can support our clients’ needs.
In the coming months we will be opening new and expanded laboratories for both bioassay and analytical services. Our laboratory in Erkrath, Germany will offer 450 m² of lab space designed to meet the special requirements of bioactivity testing. In Shrewsbury, MA, we will be opening an Analytical Center of Excellence that will offer methods for release testing, short- and long-term stability, and the comparability testing of biologics.
