SAFC Expands Irvine Facility

Published on: 

The new facility will feature dry powder cell-culture media capabilities.

SAFC Commercial, a branch of the Sigma-Aldrich Corporation, recently announced they are expanding their facility capabilities to provide redundancy to the dry powder manufacturing supply chain. The dry-powder milling and blending for cell-culture media that occurs at the Lenexa, Kansas facility will also occur in the Irvine, Scotland locations. Liquid cell-culture media, buffers, and reagents are already prepared at the Irvine site.

According to a press release, the facility expansion will allow SAFC to create shorter lead times, increase storage capacity for finished goods, and support projects from “early clinical development through commercial scale using a globally consistent approach across all cell culture media manufacturing sites,” said Gilles Cottier, president of SAFC.
