Therapure Biopharma Inc. Announces Delivery of its First Commercial-Scale Lyophilizer
Date:11/8/2009

Freeze-drying of biopharmaceuticals to be available at the Company’s Mississauga, Ontario facility.

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) November 8, 2009 -- Thomas Wellner, President and CEO of Therapure Biopharma Inc. today announced that the Company has taken delivery of a commercial scale pharmaceutical grade freeze dryer and expects to make commercial scale freeze drying (lyophilization) available for contract manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals early in 2010.

Lyophilization is used to convert biopharmaceuticals that are manufactured in an unstable liquid format into a stable, dry powder that can be reconstituted to a liquid format for administration to patients. Lyophilized forms of these life-saving products are more easily handled and stable than their liquid forms and therefore lyophilization is commonly used in the manufacture of these products.

“Commercial scale lyophilization is not readily available in Canada,” said Thomas Wellner. “The addition of a commercial-scale lyophilizer to the clinical scale capability Therapure Biopharma has now will significantly enhance the value we will bring to Therapure clients.”

Installation of the lyophilizer began last week and is expected to be completed in December. Following the installation, the Company will complete the extensive validation process required to achieve current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) status. Therapure Biopharma will begin offering commercial-scale lyophilization services from its Health Canada commercially licensed plant early in 2010.
