CARBOGEN AMCIS Sites at Aarau and Neuland in Switzerland Successfully Pass FDA Inspection

BUBENDORF, Switzerland (July 13th, 2016) — Switzerland-based CARBOGEN AMCIS AG, a pharmaceutical process development and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) manufacturing company, announced, after reception of the Establishment Inspection Report (EIR), that two of its Swiss sites have successfully completed a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspection.

The Pre-Approval Inspections (PAIs) have been completed by an FDA inspector over four days: October 19-20, 2015 in Aarau and October 21 – 22, 2015 in Neuland. The inspections have been concluded with no Form 483 observations or major critical findings, thus confirming that no concerns were discovered during the inspection. The Establishment Inspection Report, received on July 13th, 2016, confirmed this conclusion.

“The successful inspection at the Aarau and Neuland sites underscores CARBOGEN AMICS’ track record of high quality development and manufacturing. These inspections follow a series of successful FDA inspections at our sites. Our Headquarters in Bubendorf have also been successfully inspected by the FDA in 2002, 2008, 2011 and 2014.
