Meeting demand for Praesto – Purolite Life Sciences expands pilot plant

Purolite Life Sciences is fully committed to meet the demands of our customers. Following the great success and uptake of the launch of PraestoProtein A affinity and ion exchange resins, we are proud to announce the completion of a $3M investment expanding both our pilot plant and R&D facilities at our Llantrisant Centre of Excellence in Wales. This expansion, taking annual agarose capacity to 3,000 L, helps us 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.
