DKSH invests in pharmaceutical laboratory facilities

(29.10.2010, DKSH, the leading Market Expansion Services provider with a focus on Asia, has invested in two pharmaceutical laboratories to deepen the company’s application expertise. The new facilities recently opened their doors in Japan and the Philippines.

Zurich, October 29, 2010 – DKSH’s Business Unit Performance Materials, a leading distributor of specialty chemicals and pharmaceutical ingredients, has invested in new pharmaceutical laboratories to deepen the company’s application expertise, develop innovative business ideas, and formulate solutions that create even better opportunities for its suppliers and customers.

In Isogo, Japan, DKSH has invested in a high containment laboratory to support the registration process of APIs. The brand new, state-of-the-art infrastructure will ensure the company’s strong pipeline of oncology products and other APIs. Known as a first-class service provider, DKSH will provide its business partners drug master filing and method validation of analytics.

The second pharmaceutical innovation center opened its doors in Laguna, Philippines, earlier this year to offer technical pilot trials for tablet coating applications as well as prototype formulation of taste-masked children’s antibiotics (in suspension/syrup) using DKSH’s specialty excipients.

As Dr. Hansjoerg Jakubetz, Vice President Pharmaceutical Industry, puts it: “Since the population is getting older cancer is one of the most important problems we are facing now and in the future. With our investment we secure the pipeline of cancer drugs into the market. In addition, we offer now prototype formulations in South East Asia which are created in our own new laboratory in the Philippines.”
