Dulles, VA, April 27, 2022– SOFIE Co. (SOFIE), a Theranostics company, commissions its new radiopharmaceutical contract manufacturing facility in Totowa, NJ. This technologically advanced facility will efficiently manufacture and distribute multiple therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals to treat patients worldwide. It will be fully US and EU regulatory compliant and will provide doses for pre-clinical, clinical, and commercial use. This achievement is an integral part of SOFIE’s strategic goal of collaborating with academic and pharma entities to develop and supply clinically relevant radiopharmaceuticals.
