In addition to the increased volumetric capacity, Block #8 provides the flexibility to handle low and high volumes in a single block with 32 reactors (16 production trains) of sizes ranging from 1 KL to 10 KL. It has next generation automation, advanced containment systems, a separate storage area for staging of raw material and intermediates, an increased ratio of filter dryers to reactors ratio, a dedicated vacuum system for every two reactors, and a 5 KL cryo reactor.
