Catalent Solidifies Inhalation Product Development Capabilities With New Offering

Catalent Pharma Solutions has acquired advanced fine powder filling capability, which solidifies Catalent’s position as a leader in development and manufacturing services to the pharmaceutical inhalation sector. With the purchase of Harro Höfliger’s Omnidose filling equipment, Catalent now offers its customers fully scaleable dry powder inhaler (DPI) filling capability. This widely-accepted technology, to be housed in Catalent’s Research Triangle Park, North Carolina facility, provides a flexible platform to reliably support all clinical manufacture through Phase II/III and a scaleable path to higher volume late stage clinical and commercial manufacturing.

The Harro Höfliger equipment is an advanced technology specialized in powder filling for microdosing, in the 1 – 300 mg of powder range, into an array of DPI formats to include both capsule-based and pre-metered blister device formats. This new capability gives Catalent a full range of pulmonary and nasal services, filling a gap in the marketplace for advanced powder filling capabilities. Catalent will now be able to serve as a one-stop-shop for the development of all inhalation dosage forms, possessing both the capital assets and technical experience. This recent addition complements Catalent’s pre-existing automated pMDI infrastructure.

Catalent’s primary location for inhalation product development is in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina where its experienced team offers comprehensive pulmonary and nasal services to help take a product from concept through regulatory approval. Catalent has extensive experience with all pulmonary dosage forms including pMDIs, DPIs, nasal sprays and solutions/suspensions for inhalation.
