Custom high-potency APIs

Developing & manufacturing high potency APIs

We have been reliably developing and manufacturing custom high potency APIs and compounds for many years, including:

  • Immunosuppressants
  • Cytostatics/protein kinase inhibitors
  • Ultra-potent cytotoxic drug substance
  • Drug linkers
  • PEG and cyclodextrin polymeric conjugations
  • Drug product intermediates
  • Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADC) payloads

Custom high potency API development

With a strong focus on safety, you can count on us to provide expertise in cytotoxic and cytostatic APIs, including:

  • Process development
  • Analytical and QC testing
  • Laboratory scale cGMP manufacturing up to 20L
  • Controlled access high potency center for development
  • Best-in-class barrier isolation
  • Highly regimented safety protocols

Risk assessment

During the development of custom high potency APIs, we use a risk assessment approach to screen and assign occupational exposure limits (OELs) to APIs and intermediates with unknown toxicological properties.

This advanced methodology allows our expert team to make data-driven risk management decisions, decreasing time using excessive containment controls and lowering manufacturing costs.

We also employ the traditional exposure control band (ECB) methodology, which defines general health concerns, administrative and regulatory requirements, monitoring strategies and facility design requirements.
