Colorcon opens technical service lab in Istanbul

Contains processing suites for film coating trials

Colorcon, a developer of formulated coatings and other excipients for the pharmaceutical industry, has opened a new technical service laboratory in Turkey.

Based in Istanbul, the laboratory contains fully equipped processing suites for laboratory-scale immediate and modified release film coating trials.

The facilities are available for customer use and operate under the highest standards of confidentiality and safety. They provide a convenient resource for formulators to test aqueous or organic solvent coatings and identify the most effective system and production process for their pharmaceutical or food supplement dosage formulations.

According to Martti Hedman, president of Colorcon, the investment in the technical facility will save customers development time and costs. The firm plans continued capital investment and expanded services in the region.

‘We look forward to conducting our first Colorcon Coating School at the new facility in early November and are pleased that the new labs will accommodate hands-on, practical sessions to enhance the learning experience for attendees,’ he said.
