Catalent Completes Expansion of Singapore Clinical Supply Facility

Catalent completed a $2.2 million expansion to its clinical supply facility in Singapore, which has seen the site’s footprint increase to 31,000 ft2, which led to the creation of space to install an additional 35 new freezers for ultra-low temperature (ULT) storage.

The investment has also increased the facility’s capabilities to support larger packaging campaigns through the addition of specialized secondary packaging capabilities for ULT products, as well as increasing its ability to handle biopharmaceuticals and advanced modalities, including mRNA-based vaccines, and cell and gene therapies, according to Catalent officials.

“The Singapore site was the first Catalent clinical supply facility in the Asia-Pacific region, and now serves as a strategic supply hub, shipping clinical materials with high reliability and speed to over 20 countries,” said Tracey Clare, general manager of APAC Operations for Catalent.

In addition to sites in China and Japan, Catalent’s site in Singapore serves the Asia-Pacific region with a wide range of clinical supply services including clinical supply management, comparator sourcing, Catalent’s FastChain® supply solution, secondary packaging, storage, and global distribution, as well as clinical returns and destruction, added Clare.
