Mike’s team in Bend, OR was only supposed to optimize the spray drying process for a particular medication while another, much larger, facility would handle the large-scale manufacturing. However, the other facility’s equipment wouldn’t be available in time to meet the client’s aggressive IND filing schedule. It was time to leverage the power of the Thermo Fisher Scientific global network and Quick to CareTM program to offer the client their best chance for success.
Through incredible effort and intensely coordinated activities, the team in Bend delivered nearly two orders of magnitude more material than typical projects before transferring the product to other Thermo Fisher sites to test, fill, and deliver to patients. Despite the change in plans, the right team stepped in to ensure all deadlines were met, and the client got a critical medicine to the patients who needed it most.
