DuPont Nutrition & Health (DuPont) will upgrade its probiotics pilot facility in Madison, Wisconsin with US$10 million.
Once completed, the facility will allow faster new product development and improved delivery times on pilot material for clinical trials and customer evaluations.
Construction on the probiotics pilot area, completed in phases over the last six months, provides increased capacity and speed for new product development.
This in turn improves overall scale up capability and a more seamless transition to commercial scale production.
The pilot area will have new equipment, data collection, laboratories, instrumentation and specialized work space for probiotic development and scale up.
The upgrades that quadrupled the pilot area have already increased bandwidth to simultaneously run more development projects while improving scale up efficiency and time to market.
