An official opening of this state-of-the-art laboratory is planned for May 20, 2015.
The expansion has seen the previous 1,393 square meter laboratory space more than double in size to 3,400 square meters, and once validation is completed, the laboratory will act as a dedicated cGMP pharmaceutical testing site.
The workforce has increased from 65 to 115, with the potential for up to another 40 employees in the additional facilities.
Investment at the laboratory has been focused on increasing stability chamber capacity, and in supporting chromatography equipment, including new UPLC capabilities.
The Mumbai facility now has the largest stability testing facility in the SGS Life Science Services' global network, with the expansion driven by the increased demand from both local and international customers.
