Description

Located at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of the Basque Country (UPV), Campus of Vitoria, is led by Prof. José Luis Pedraz and consists of large laboratories for: cell culture, chromatography equipment, sample preparation and characterization and one specific for scale preparation of pharmaceutical formulations. This Unit has the capacity to design and evaluate dosage forms both classical and new dosage forms of biotech drugs, DNA, RNA and vaccines using different methodologies based on micro and nano-medicine. The latter methodology based on the microencapsulation of cells, peptides, proteins, and in general of biotech products, as well as the development and design of non-viral vectors for gene therapy, is one of the biggest singularities of this unit. It counts with the most advanced equipment for micro and nano encapsulation.

The aim of the Unit is to determine experimentally all the variables needed to develop an optimal formulation and work instructions for preparing final pharmaceutical products.

The pharmaceutical technology applied to drug development involves the selection of materials and procedures that can be adapted to different processes that lead to specific pharmaceutical forms. To do that, the Unit counts with the most advanced equipment to cover the development for all the steps of the process.

One of the singularities of this Units is that is GLP certified by the Spanish Medicament Agency

Description

The JUMISC Animal Housing Unit provides services to companies and research groups in many preclinical trials. This unit advises designs and conducts preclinical validation on demand. It has qualified professionals to design, monitor and validate any type of biomedical study. In addition this unit has been certified by the Spanish Agency of Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) for studies in “Dosing of test substance and non-clinical specimen drawing” and “Biocompatibility studies of medical devices”. These two new certifications are attached to existing “in vivo toxicity”, “Tolerance” and “Pharmacodynamics”. All these certifications allow NANBIOSIS members to perform studies to verify the effectiveness, safety and biocompatibility of nanotechnology under development. A most singular fact makes this unit is the possibility of housing, maintaining and supervising large animals for preclinical validations. This Service has extensive experience in handling and care of minipigs and what it entails use in preclinical studies.

Its perimeter area is 3,200 m2, and the net floor area is 2,865 m2. It has large rooms to house the experimental animals according to their species characteristics (age, sex, weight, breed) and to the research projects they are assigned to. Among the equipment and facilities include: rooms for the maintenance of large animals, rooms for maintaining small ruminants, barrier zone for maintenance of rodents under SPF conditions, integrated operating room within the barrier area, multi-use rooms for rodents and lagomorphs maintenance, room for receipt and handling of animals, quarantine rooms pre-experimental process, room to perform small procedures and cures and preparation rooms for large animals prior to the surgical area.

This unit has facilities with a perimeter area of 3,200 m2 and it has large rooms to house the experimental animals according to their species characteristics.
