Healthcare / Research
New Drug Research Center is located in Chino, California and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Its function is to conduct preliminary studies for complex generic and new drugs, as well as new formulations. Many pilot scale studies and pre-clinical studies are performed at this facility. Upon successful pre-clinical studies, the formulation is then transferred to the R&D department at one of the other three facilities (IMS, Amphastar, or Armstrong) for further testing. The facility currently has a number of advanced instruments in the field of analytical testing, in vitro/in vivo testing, and formulation studies.
