SHANGHAI, June 30, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Catalent, the global leader in enabling biopharma, cell, gene and consumer 
health partners to optimize development, launch, and supply of better patient 
treatments across multiple modalities, today announced that it has expanded its 
primary packaging capabilities at its clinical supply facility in Shiga, Japan, 
through the installation of a high-speed blister packaging line to complement 
its existing automated bottling line.

The new blister packaging equipment is identical to that available across 
Catalent's clinical supply services network, offering maximum access and 
flexibility to customers undertaking this work globally.

The 6,000-square-meter Shiga site opened in October 2021 to support customers 
locally and globally, providing flexible clinical supply solutions, including 
Catalent's FastChain® demand-led supply, white glove handling and logistics. 
The team at Shiga offers customers bi-lingual, English and Japanese, project 
and clinical supply management, services including packaging and labeling, 
storage and distribution, controlled drug and cold chain storage and handling, 
as well as in-country returns and destruction services.

"The demand for primary packaging in Japan is very high, and customers are 
increasingly looking for integrated providers of clinical supply expertise and 
services," commented Roel de Nobel, Vice President and General Manager of Asia 
Pacific, Catalent Clinical Supply Services. He added, "Shiga is a key hub 
within our Asia-Pacific clinical supply services network, and with these new 
capabilities, which are now fully operational, we will offer a comprehensive 
range of services, which are customizable to customers' specific needs."

With a network spanning the U.S., U.K., Germany, Singapore, Japan, and China, 
plus more than 50 additional global depots, Catalent's clinical supply services
