Design and produce a full range of drug substances, drug product intermediates and finished drug products

We’ve developed proprietary processes and equipment to successfully advance formulations using a range of specialized enabling technologies. Extensive science-of-scale studies across our technologies have not only supported rapid scale-up to clinic and commercialization, but also enabled the design of specialized lab-scale equipment to efficiently support feasibility and early clinical studies.

Our flexible product development approach and business models means we can provide exactly what our customers need. We can design and produce a full range of drug substances, drug product intermediates and finished drug products.

Our integrated product development and manufacturing locations ensure seamless product development, accelerated timelines and certainty of supply.

Phase-appropriate services

We start by gaining a full understanding of your compound, target product profile and objectives. Phase-appropriate services and processing are in place so that you get exactly what you need in the timeline required. Whether your requirement is first-in-human, formulation optimization, or rapid scale-up, your next milestone is our focus - let's get there together.

We know more about product design for challenging compounds because we’ve done more. Lonza has formulated thousands of compounds and encountered a myriad of bioavailability, pharmacokinetic and other formulation and processing challenges.

Technologies and products


We have the full range of technologies in-house to address solubility or dissolution rate, modulate drug release, and meet your target product profile. This has enabled us to develop technology selection methodologies based on proprietary databases, predictive models and expert systems to use in place of empirical screening. The result –rapid application of enabling technology to fit a specific compound, thereby accelerating development and clinical timelines while minimizing API requirements.

oral drug products and intermediates

our global footprint

Our global network of eight Centers of Excellence span across three continents. This network provides integrated development and manufacturing for drug substances, drug product intermediates based on particle engineering, and oral solid drug products. Each site has phase-appropriate processing in place for feasibility studies through commercialization.
