Product life cycle management with a wide range of manufacturing assets

Leveraging more than 30 years of mammalian manufacturing experience we can provide you a comprehensive yet flexible development and manufacturing packages. We work with clients of all sizes, from small biotechs to multi-national pharmaceutical companies, tailoring our services to meet your specific needs. We are committed to your success; it is our mission to ensure you meet your product and company milestones.

Our experience includes a variety of product types including monoclonal antibodies, recombinant proteins, and next generation complex proteins. With success in clinical and commercial supply, our broad technology platforms, complete range of development services, and cutting-edge manufacturing processes enable your product to reach its full potential.

Preclinical to Early Clinical Manufacture

Our pre-clinical to clinical manufacturing services offer sales of 1000L to 2000:, and non-GMP pilot scales from 50L to 500L. We have five production sites that offer a global solution for your early clinical mammalian manufacturing needs. These state-of-the-art cGMP plants are located in: Slough (UK), Hayward, CA (USA), Tuas, Singapore and in our Biopark in Visp, Switzerland. The newest addition to our network is in Guangzhou, China is in the final stages of construction.

Late Clinical to Commercial Manufacture

Our late clinical to commercial manufacturing services offer scales of 1000L to 20000L. Our bioreactors include both single use technologies up to 2000L scale and stainless steel reactors from 6000L to 20000L providing you with the agility to react to changing product demand and readiness for the right commercial scale.

In determining which scale and location is most appropriate for your project, we discuss with you the clinical path, product needs and product launch/commercialization strategy. We consider both your mid and long-term needs.

We have five production sites that offer comprehensive clinical and commercial mammalian manufacturing. These state-of-the-art cGMP plants are located outside Boston in Portsmouth, NH (USA), in Porriño Spain, in Tuas, Singapore, in Slough (UK) and our Biopark in Visp Switzerland. This network offers a global solution to your late clinical and commercial manufacturing needs.

Our regulatory affairs teams have extensive experience with writing and supporting the preparation of Module 3 for your BLA/MAA in support of commercialization. We start 4-5 new BLA programs per year. Our proven BLA approach balances different priorities, timelines, risks and provides an overview of the entire program. It ensures the scope of work meets your needs, accelerating your product market readiness and reduces overall project time.

Drug substance manufacturing scale matters

A number of developments are translating into a growing demand for mid-scale manufacturing among pharmaceutical and biotech firms. Fragmenting of patient populations through either targeted therapies, more personalized treatment protocols or competing products including biosimilars may require capacities lower than would have been the case in previous years. In addition, the number of therapies addressing unmet needs for niche or orphan indications is increasing, fueled by supportive regulatory systems and buoyant biotech funding. Increased potency of biologic molecules together with more efficient bioprocessing including higher titers and yields are also factors driving the need for mid-scale capacity.
