West Pharmaceutical Services Expands Manufacturing Capacity at Scottsdale Facility to Support Customer Demand for SmartDose® Electronic Wearable Injector

West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. announced that it has expanded capabilities at its Scottsdale, Ariz. facility to meet increased customer demand for the SmartDose® Electronic Wearable Injector. The expansion in Scottsdale will enable continuing development and production of SmartDose to accommodate rising interest in the product to further demonstrate the ability to support customer launch plans and to provide supply-chain security. With the treatment of many chronic illnesses shifting out of clinical settings to home care and self-administration, there is growing need for drug products that can be easily injected by patients. Designed to deliver high volumes of injectable drugs over an extended period of time, SmartDose makes it easier for patients to self-administer medication and encourages compliance with prescribed treatments. Patients have already self-administered thousands of doses using SmartDose in clinical settings. West has delivered more than 100,000 units of SmartDose and more than 800,000 validated Daikyo Crystal Zenith® drug containers to pharmaceutical manufacturers for customer-funded development projects and clinical trials, including eight active programs at various stages of pre-commercial development. The expanded capabilities at the Scottsdale site include clean room manufacturing and additional laboratory space. New jobs are being created in R&D, engineering, quality and operations functions to ramp-up production, new development and sustainment engineering.
