Avista Pharma Solutions Expands Service Offerings in New England

CDMO Expands Analytical Chemistry Suite And Announces New Boston Metro Office

BOSTON, MA., September 17, 2018 – Avista Pharma Solutions, Inc. (“Avista Pharma”) has announced upgrades to its Agawam, MA facility, increasing its analytical chemistry footprint while expanding its compendial and raw material testing capabilities. In addition to these upgrades, the company has also opened a new office in the Boston Metro area to provide broader cleanroom services and an expanded courier business. The new office is an extension of the company’s microbiology, analytical and cleanroom service offerings at its facility in Agawam and is part of Avista Pharma’s ongoing expansion plan to offer a seamless and convenient client experience.


Serving over 300 customers from its Agawam location, Avista Pharma’s most recent analytical service upgrades position the facility as a preferred provider for pharmaceutical and medical device clients in need of microbiological and analytical testing. These upgrades include a new 950 square-foot laboratory space that will enhance compendial and raw material testing capabilities.


In addition to the Agawam facility upgrades, Avista Pharma recently opened a new office in the Boston Metro area to support the company’s cleanroom service business. The company’s expanded courier service provides time-sensitive sample pickups from client facilities throughout New England, delivering those samples daily to the Agawam facility for testing. Avista Pharma’s cleanroom service team supports pharmaceutical and medical device clients operating cleanroom facilities with services including risk assessments, generation of sampling plans, performance qualifications, ISO room certifications and routine environmental monitoring.


“We are excited to offer a complete suite of analytical testing to our growing customer base and to expand geographically to more efficiently serve our Boston-area clients,” said Patrick Walsh, CEO of Avista Pharma. “This expansion allows us to meet all of our clients’ microbiological, analytical, and environmental testing needs.”
