Pall Corporation, a global leader in filtration, separation and purification, announced it will be opening a Life Sciences Center of Excellence in Westborough, Massachusetts. Strategically located in the heart of Massachusetts’ renowned life-science cluster, the new center will provide Pall life sciences customers in the northeast region of the United States a range of process solutions for drug development, validation support and training capabilities. The new Life Sciences center is scheduled to open in the spring of 2013.
“Our New England Life Sciences Center of Excellence is an important addition to our global network of customer support centers,” said Ken Frank, President, Pall BioPharmaceuticals. “It will complement our new center in Menlo Park, Calif. and serve as a technical hub for our Life Sciences business and operations in the northeast region of the United States.”
The 113,000 square-feet center will be equipped with new advanced life sciences equipment and will serve as a showcase for Pall technologies. These include: single-use systems (SUS), tangential flow filtration (TFF) systems, viral clearance and cell culture solutions, chromatography systems and others. The Westborough complex will serve as a proving ground for new technologies and applications development and will be designed to lead customers through the sequential stages of process flow. The center also will serve as a training facility for both Pall employees and customers.
Pall plans to transfer its existing operations and employees from its Northborough, Massachusetts location to the new center.
“The new Westborough facility provides an excellent opportunity for growth and will allow us to retain and attract talented scientists and engineers from the New England area,” adds Frank.
