Our Goals: Creation of effective production processes and development of future defining projects

Our work is aimed at continuously optimising existing production processes and developing innovative biological active pharmaceutical ingredients and drug products. In doing so, we service the full process range, from extraction, fermentation, purification and characterisation of proteins, via the development of the required analytical procedures, all the way to establishing GMP compliant manufacturing processes and the performance of ICH compliant stability studies, method validations and formulation of the finished pharmaceutical product.
