- This hub would usher in a paradigm shift in the pharmaceutical sector, including current methodologies from R&D through manufacturing and migrating to more environmentally friendly and sustainable procedures.
- This hub is a groundbreaking endeavour by the Telangana government, in collaboration with Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories and Laurus Labs, to incorporate and promote efficient and sustainable technology in the pharmaceutical industry.
- The FCT Hub houses a variety of state-of-the-art flow chemistry equipment to provide hands-on training and promote scientific capability building, ensuring greater inclusion of flow chemistry techniques throughout pharma R&D and greater adoption of constant synthesis for active pharma ingredients (APIs) manufacturing.
- Last year, the state administration took the lead in bringing together numerous collaborators to help the state implement the latest flow chemistry technologies.
This inauguration will help the API and intermediate industry take concrete steps toward developing local abilities in green manufacturing processes.
