Catalent, the global leader in enabling biopharma, cell, gene, and consumer health partners to optimize development, launch, and supply of better patient treatments across multiple modalities, announced that it is to establish a new biologics analytical center of excellence in Durham, within North Carolina’s Research Triangle, to offer comprehensive standalone analytical development and testing for biologic drug modalities, including cell and gene therapies.

Catalent plans to invest up to $40 million to fit out the 80,000 square-foot facility with state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation, including automation and digitization capabilities. When complete it will provide comprehensive solutions that include bioassays, physico-chemical testing, and full product and process characterization, as well as process validation support, stability testing, in-process manufacturing and formulation analysis, and post-packaging identification. Catalent expects to complete the facility by mid-2023, which will support the hiring of over 200 scientists and technicians over the next five years.

The new CGMP facility will complement Catalent’s biologics analytical center of excellence in Kansas City, Missouri, which is currently undergoing a $12 million expansion project to add new analytical development laboratories to support the growing demand for assay development in both traditional biologics and advanced modalities, such as antibody-drug conjugates, cell and gene therapies and mRNA vaccines.
