July 26, 2012 — UAS Laboratories has recently announced an increase in probiotic manufacturing capability that will more than triple the current capacity.
The new expanded facility is expected to become operational before the end of 2012. This new addition is dedicated to the production of probiotics, one of few facilities of this type in the world. The new plant will include state of the art equipment for probiotic manufacturing. In addition, the new expanded laboratory will have the capacity to do all required probiotic testing as required by cGMP.
Probiotics are live microorganisms that require special handling for all operations to ensure that the organisms remain viable and avoid contamination. UAS Laboratories is one of the first probiotic companies in the U.S. and has more than 40 years of experience in probiotic discovery and development.
UAS Labs was one of the first companies to use special University of Wisconsin technology for maintenance of low water activity and nitrogen packaging to maintain a low oxygen atmosphere — both critical for probiotic longevity. The company has incorporated their vast experience in probiotics to create a state-of-the-art probiotic production facility.
