MILFORD, MA — Nitto Avecia Inc.

This exciting news comes only months after bringing into operation Avecia’s new API manufacturing synthesis capabilities. This manufacturing capacity expansion increases Avecia’s total synthesis capacity to more than 3 Mol. Nitto Avecia’s President Detlef Rethage stated: “Avecia’s leadership in the oligonucleotide market is significant and we are proud to have added this major manufacturing scale in less than two years to address a capacity shortage that could have slowed down our client’s clinical trial progress.
