“A newly announced pharmaceutical lab facility is expanding a local company’s footprint while introducing a newcomer to the area.
Shockoe Slip-based Phlow Corp. and Maryland-based nonprofit U.S. Pharmacopeia held a ribbon-cutting Monday at their new Advanced Pharmaceutical Development Center in the Bio+Tech Park in downtown Richmond.
The center occupies about 5,000 square feet in total, and each company has dedicated lab space in addition to shared offices in the center.
Phlow CEO and co-founder Eric Edwards said the facilities open the door to an expansion of the firm’s research and development services beyond the U.S. government to clients in the private sector. The company was founded with the goal to establish a secure domestic supply of medicines and pharmaceutical ingredients through new technology and American-based manufacturing.”
