Bologna, Italy:- European health authorities have awarded Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) status to crystalline form specialist CRO PolyCrystalLine Srl. Following a successful audit.
PolyCrystalLine‘s cGMP certification covers chemical and physics analyses for qualitative and quantitative determination of active ingredients, intermediates and finished products.
Specifically, the certification approves PolyCrystalLine’s use of X-ray powder diffraction, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and FT-Raman spectroscopy.
While the certificate takes effect from early 2015, PolyCrystalLine has already drafted and signed the Technical Agreement that specifies internal roles and responsibilities related to production and control of the drugs. This ensures compliance with current GMP practices and standards.
PolyCrystalLine CEO, Dr. Stefano Luca Giaffreda, welcomed the award of cGMP status as a significant step forward for the company.
“We have been working very hard for many months to ensure successful audit and to show that the precision and rigor of out diffraction and spectroscopy match the best in Europe,” said Dr. Giaffreda.
“I would like to pay tribute and to thank everyone involved in that effort,” he added.
“Now the awarding of cGMP status recognizes that PolyCrystalLine can operate to the highest standards,” said Dr. Giaffreda.
