Non-Sterile Dosage Forms

How We Deliver

We offer drug product development and manufacturing services for oral solid dose (OSD) and other non-sterile specialty dosage forms for all phases from clinical development through commercialization.

Oral Solid Dose

Our three facilities focused on the development and manufacture of oral solid dosage forms have capabilities in conventional processing technologies (wet and dry granulation, fluid bed) for tablets (standard, minitablets) and capsules (direct API, powders, pellets, minitablets), including aesthetic and enteric coating.

Non-Sterile Liquids

We have multiple sites that develop and manufacture non-sterile liquid dosage forms including suspensions, drops, and nasal sprays. We have various compounding (mixing, homogenizing) equipment and automated bottle filling lines for all of these dosage forms.

Rectal Dosage Forms

We have extensive expertise in developing and manufacturing rectal dosage forms (suppositories, enemas). Core capabilities include compounding (mixing, homogenizing) for liquid and semi-solid drug products, as well as automated filling lines.

Sterile Dosage Forms

How We Deliver

We offer drug product development and manufacturing services for sterile dosage forms for all phases from clinical development through commercialization. We offer solutions, suspensions, emulsions, lyophilized powders, and lipid nanoparticle (LNP) formulations, using both aseptic and terminal sterilization technologies. We have multiple packaging solutions including vials, ampoules, cartridges, and pre-filled syringes (PFS).

Sterile Liquids

We have extensive expertise in developing and manufacturing injectable liquids including specific techniques such as sterile emulsion technology and LNP formulations. Various forms of packaging are available.

Sterile Powder-Lyophilized Vials

We also offer development and manufacturing of sterile powder-filled vials and lyophilized vials for various types of active ingredients (e.g. small molecules, peptides, proteins, monoclonal antibodies, oligonucleotides).

Drug Product Support Services

How We Deliver

Our drug product support services include bioavailability enhancement capabilities for solubility-challenged APIs and lipid nanoparticle (LNP) formulation development.

Bioavailability Enhancement

As a part of our Early Phase Drug Product Innovation Centre of Excellence, bioavailability enhancement capabilities are available for addressing formulations containing solubility-challenged APIs. We have enabling technologies such as spray drying, hot melt extrusion, nanomilling, and micronization to address absorption issues, as well as access to a portfolio of lipid excipients for SEDDS / SMEDDS formulations that can address permeability issues.

LNP Formulation Development & Manufacturing

We offer LNP formulation development, incorporating different technologies (from microfluidics to jet impingement) as well as proper diafiltration / concentration to allow you to manufacture targeted nanoparticle formulated drugs encapsulating your biological payload (e.g. mRNA, RNA, oligonucleotides).
