small molecules

We are an industry-leading integrated development and manufacturing service provider for small molecule drug substances and their intermediates.

Chemistry is core to Lonza. Our track record in producing API and intermediates extends back to the genesis of contract development and manufacturing. Thousands of compounds have been successfully developed and progressed by our R&D, process development and manufacturing teams. Many of these molecules have been scaled under accelerated timelines to meet program objectives.


In our extensive contract development and manufacturing services portfolio we use advanced technologies to quickly and efficiently deliver products such as monoclonal antibodies, complex proteins and recombinant proteins.

The field of cell and gene therapy is transforming the way patients diagnosed with cancers or genetic diseases can be treated. These novel drug candidates provide drastically improved patient outcomes and, in some cases, can be curative. However, manufacturing of such medicines pose complex new challenges. Today, the cost of production still represents a major hurdle for clinical translation and commercialization of these potentially groundbreaking therapies. New technologies are needed to enable robust and cost-efficient manufacturing of high-quality medicines. While the therapeutic opportunities for patients are exciting, the stakes for patients and drug developers are high.

We provide life science researchers with the tools they need to develop and test therapeutics, from basic research to final product release. Our Bioscience products and services range from cell culture and discovery technologies for research, to quality control tests and software for biomanufacturing.
