Clinical scale

Our purpose built clinical manufacturing facility was designed with operational flexibility, technical capability, speed of delivery and quality assurance at its core.

The challenge

For any developer, getting your candidate ready for the clinic is critical.

Finding the right aseptic manufacturer with the required capabilities and track record to handle your clinical product can be challenging enough. Your asset may require specialised, expert handling, especially for advanced therapeutics such as viral vectors or antibody drug conjugates.

Finding a clinical trial manufacturing partner who can also meet your project’s timelines as you scale towards commercialisation is also essential.
