DPT and Confab complete US$10m investment


To add a compounding suite in San Antonio, Texas and a new laboratory in Montreal, Canada

DPT Laboratories, a US-based contract development and manufacturing organisation (CDMO) specialising in semi-solid and liquid dosage forms, and its subsidiary Confab, which specialises in complex solids, semi-solids and liquids, have completed a combined US$10m capital investment.

San Antonio-based DPT has invested in a new compounding suite and significant upgrades to production filling lines that will increase capacity, throughput and precision. Additional upgrades include a remodelled front office area and enhanced security to further restrict access to the manufacturing floor and further enhance GMP compliance.

Montreal-based Confab made a 'significant investment' to increase R&D capabilities with a new state-of-the-art laboratory, new equipment and expansion of its R&D team. Confab can now offer customers pharmaceutical development capabilities ranging from formulation development and analytical method development to technology transfers at commercial scale.
