Omnia Biologics Expands Spray Drying Services

ROCKVILLE, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Biologics development and manufacturing services provider Omnia Biologics, Inc. (Omnia) (Rockville, MD) today announced the successful implementation of its spraying drying services program for stabilization of customers' biologics drug products.

Stabilization of biologics to eliminate or reduce a complex and expensive cold chain is a pressing need for many drug developers. This is particularly true for vaccines and especially for vaccines with defense and/or developing nations' applications where a cold chain is impractical or impossible and the costs may be unbearable. In such cases, dried products with extended ambient shelf lives make all the difference in a lifesaving therapy's availability. "We have offered liquid formulated and lyophilized process development, cGMP manufacture, formulation and stability services for some time and continue to do so. However, we have recently seen the process and stabilization advantages of spray drying especially as it relates to improved ambient stability for vaccines important in developing economies. We would like to open these services to all or our customers, many of whom have not looked at the distribution improvements provided by spray drying a biopharmaceutical product," commented Dr. Dale VanderPutten, CEO, Omnia Biologics, Inc. on the offering.
