Omni a Key Participant in 2020 ISPE Facility of the Year Award-Winning Project
The International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) recently announced the winners of the 2020 ISPE Facility of the Year Awards (FOYA), and for the fifth time in twelve years, Omni was involved in one of the projects. The project, United Therapeutics Dinutuximab-Dedicated Oncology Medical and Analytical Laboratory (DDOMAL), won the inaugural Social Impact Category Award.
FOYA is the premier global awards program recognizing innovation and creativity in manufacturing facilities serving the regulated healthcare industry. The award-winning projects selected by the FOYA program set the standard for pharmaceutical facilities of the future by demonstrating excellence in facility design, construction, and operations.
Located in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland, the award-winning DDOMAL building is dedicated to research and development of dinutuximab (Unituxin), an approved treatment for pediatric high-risk neuroblastoma, in addition to serving as United Therapeutics’ corporate headquarters. ISPE named DDOMAL the Social Impact category winner not only for the facility’s dedication to meeting unmet medical needs for children, but for the “sheer number of challenges this project had to overcome, while never losing focus on why they were doing this work”.
Omni’s involvement in the project included the design, fabrication, installation and system integration of a new PLC-based control system, installation of instrumentation and control wiring, instrument loop testing, calibration, commissioning, and qualification. Omni has contributed to four previous FOYA projects in 2008, 2010, 2011, and 2016.
