“During large scale microbial drug substance manufacturing, oftentimes there will be unpredicted factors that fall outside of the project scope and therefore require scale up optimization specific to that project. At Althea, we will go above and beyond to adapt and do whatever is needed to push forward and ultimately have a successful outcome for the client.”
