In the November/December 2012 issue we visit Anteco Pharma, a CMO that specializes in the lyophilization and related processing of pharmaceutical intermediates. We profile Merck's Vaccine Bulk Manufacturing Facility (VBF) Program of Projects, the overall winner of the 2012 Facility of the Year Awards. Our reader survey on selecting a CMO/CSO reveals what our readers look for in a service provider and what they view as a red flag. In addition, we include articles on managing outsourcing relationships, pure water production, dust deflagration hazards in OSD facilities, cleaning and sterilization methods and trends, and modular construction considerations.
