US-based Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand has announced the completion of a build in San Diego that is the group's second ready-to-use cleanroom facility
Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand, a provider of early-phase life sciences GxP manufacturing, has recently completed the design and construction of their second facility located in Vista, California.
Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand is already home to ready-to-use cleanrooms equipped to meet the demands required. The facilities contain ISO Class 7/8 ready-to-use cleanrooms with ISO 5 BSCs with sizes ranging from 350 to 770 sqft, provided on an annual basis. These can be optimised for small-to-medium scale processes, R&D, and early-phase manufacturing.
Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand San Diego is the group's second cleanroom facility, an expansion of their initial offering in Waltham, MA, established in 2018.
In addition to the opening of its San Diego facility, Azzur Group plans to open its third facility in Burlington, MA in the second half of 2021, with plans for further national expansion throughout 2022.
Azzur's hybrid model includes turnkey GMP support: on-demand cleanroom facilities, materials management, storage, asset management, and supply chain solutions. Azzur Group's portfolio - Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand, Azzur Advisory and Consulting, Azzur Labs, and Azzur Training Center - enables companies to focus on the science and early-phase cGMP manufacturing without the burden of facility ownership and maintenance.
Azzur chose San Diego because of the growth in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors in the area. Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand is conveniently and strategically placed adjacent to Azzur Labs, allowing clients to have access to comprehensive services for their pharmaceutical and therapeutic manufacturing needs.
"With the explosive growth in novel therapeutics, such as cell and gene therapy and microbiome-based therapies, the Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand business model is poised to accelerate time to clinic and market for such products in key biotech clusters, including San Diego," said Ravi Samavedam, President of Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand.
