Midatech Group announces the opening of cGMP standard facility for the production of nanoparticles

Abstract:
Midatech Group Ltd. has announced the opening of its specialist design and manufacturing facility for cGMP grade nanoparticles in Bilbao, Spain.

Midatech Biogune S.L. is the world's first cGMP grade manufacturing plant for the production of nanoparticles at a scale commensurate with pharmaceutical applications.

Staffed by an experienced, multi-disciplined team, the plant will initially focus on the design and manufacture of nanoparticles to supply Midatech Group's series of projects applying nanotechnology for therapeutic purposes. These include using nanoparticles as scaffolds for synthetic vaccines and antibiotics, as drug delivery vehicles for RNAi drugs and drugs able to cross the blood brain barrier, as well as targeted cancer treatments and imaging agents. Midatech's nanoparticles will allow drug companies to deliver new and existing medicines at significantly lower doses and with greater specificity, thereby reducing toxicity.
