Making the announcement, Dr Dean Edney, Global Head of Process R&D at Sai Life Sciences said, “In a little over two years since we began in Manchester, our team has established a formidable reputation for itself as a high-quality scientific unit that can solve complex chemistry challenges. Our growing list of global innovator clients is a strong validation of our success. The present recruitment drive is aimed at increasing our scientific capacity to better serve the growing demand.”
In July 2020, Sai Life Sciences opened a new Centre of Excellence in Process Chemistry R&D in Alderley Park, Manchester to help accelerate the NCE development programmes of its global innovator customers. This Centre has since grown to become a reliable partner to many innovator companies across the world, providing high quality chemistry, non-GMP material delivery, and successful technology transfer to its sites in India for scale-up.
Now, with a growing interest from its customers for clinical API supplies from Manchester, work is underway to set-up a GMP Kilo Lab at the Manchester site. Scheduled to be commissioned in Q4-2022, the new facility will be capable of delivering GMP drug substance and intermediates, with the GMP equipment engineered to provide containment down to 1µg/m3.
As part of the SaiNxt transformation initiative, the company has executed investments of US$110M in expanding into new geographies, augmenting its capacity and operations, while raising the bar for quality, compliance and performance.
