Solutia’s new low-temperature fluid

Cambridge Major to Utilize Therminol VLT in New State-of-Art Facility

ST. LOUIS, April 26, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ — Solutia Inc.’s new low- temperature fluid, Therminol VLT, has been selected by Cambridge Major Laboratories to run its state-of-the-art GMP facility. Ideally suited for single-fluid heating and cooling systems between -115 C (-175 F) and 175 C (350 F), Therminol VLT is uniquely designed to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical industry.

Cambridge Major Laboratories is a service-based chemistry outsourcing partner to the world’s leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. “We were looking for a low-temperature fluid with the capability of going below -100 C, in order to scale-up our current processes. We knew Solutia’s Therminol VLT could provide that flexibility, where other companies’ products couldn’t,” said Robert Petersen, pilot plant manager at Cambridge Major.

Leveraging more than 50 years of experience in providing heat transfer fluid solutions, Solutia developed Therminol VLT in response to the pharmaceutical industry’s emerging need for a fluid that can operate at extremely low temperatures. In addition to the capability of operating at temperatures as low as -115 C (-175 F), Therminol VLT offers pharmaceutical manufacturers precise temperature control, increased product yield and reduced production time.

Solutia will be featuring Therminol VLT at booth C274 at INTERPHEX 2005, the world’s largest and most comprehensive pharmaceutical conference and exhibition. Taking place in New York from April 26-28, more than 1,000 leading companies serving the pharmaceutical and biotech industries will be present.
