Abbott Opens New State-of-the-Art R&D Facility to Help Bring Medicines to Patients Faster

begins shortly after a candidate molecule is identified. Initial formulations are then refined as more information is gathered through the development process.

The center was specifically designed with cutting-edge equipment and improvements to advance the R&D process, including automated technologies that reduce the time for preparing, producing and refining pilot drug formulations. In addition, all of the equipment in the facility is aligned with the production equipment in Abbott's commercial manufacturing sites, which will allow for rapid scale-up of production as drug compounds move toward late-stage clinical trials and market availability for patients.

"We considered several locations for the new formulation center, but decided to strategically place the building in the midst of our other Abbott Park R&D facilities to provide easy access for our scientists, pharmacists and engineers," said Leonard.
