Purolite Life Sciences expands pilot plant

Purolite Life Sciences is fully committed to meet the demands of its customers. Following the great success and uptake of the launch of Praesto™ Protein A affinity and ion exchange resins, the company has announced the completion of a $3M investment expanding both our pilot plant and R&D facilities at its Llantrisant Centre of Excellence in Wales. This expansion, taking annual agarose capacity to 3,000 L, helps the company address today’s customer demand for large orders and short lead times for chromatography resins.

Phase three of the pilot plant expansion, occurring this summer, will further increase production capacity and lead up to our state-of-the-art 100,000 L agarose manufacturing facility coming on line early 2017.
