bioCERTIFIED™ Program from Spectrum Chemical

Production of biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines, antibodies and recombinant proteins requires a more stringently-controlled process than traditional small molecule drugs. Certifying that raw materials are free of contaminants or particles is critical to robust bioprocessing systems. Spectrum's new bioCERTIFIED program goes beyond its standard testing that every chemical brought into its facilities undergoes, offering additional bioburden, endotoxin and elemental impurities controls and testing.

With four established analytical laboratories that perform more than 15,000 tests per year, Spectrum Chemical continues to expand its footprint, having recently added over 42,000 square feet of manufacturing, laboratory, and warehousing in its New Brunswick headquarters. The facilities offer modern biopharma industry standard CFR 210/211 cGMP packaging capabilities and ISO 8 controlled environment. Additional expansions totaling more than 100,000 square feet are planned for 2019 and 2020.
