Services and expertise in Drug Development: from drug candidate to proof of concept

We are committed to translating innovative drug research into therapeutic applications – safely, reliably and efficiently. Based on our scientific expertise, we offer appropriate methods and approaches for this purpose. With a development strategy tailored to your product, we support you in process development and manufacturing of your active biopharmaceutical ingredient and sterile investigational medicinal product, in preclinical testing – both pharmacology and toxicology – and in early-phase clinical trials from first-in-human to the clinical proof of concept.

Our state-of-the-art equipment and innovative research approaches allow us to develop new methods and techniques – also in cooperation with you and beyond the scope of our own services. Already in the early phase of drug development, we provide assistance as independent consultants and negotiators in the dialog between applicant and regulatory authority. We work in compliance with regulatory and legal requirements for drug development – quality platforms according to GLP, GMP, and GCP standards are available for this.
