Drug Product Development Services

Your drug product formulation & process development CDMO

CARBOGEN AMCIS, as a drug product CDMO, offers at its Saint-Beauzire (France) site, drug product formulation and drug product process development services that are characterized by a dedication to quality and excellence.

  • Specialized in the development of both liquid- and lyophilized-drug products
  • From formulation work with choice of solvents, co-solvents and excipients to on-boarding existing formulation and even formulation life cycle management
  • The developed formulation can be used for pre formulation studies, toxicological or proof of concept studies

Formulation Development

Formulation development of a new drug product at CARBOGEN AMCIS is designed with great attention to detail, to fulfill the specific requirements of pharmaceutical products, diluents, and applications throughout the preclinical, clinical, and commercial phases.
Our process
Our process begins with a thorough solubility screening to ensure the optimal API concentration of your drug product. This is supplemented by our strategic selection of solvents, excipients, and co-solvents, all of which are tailored to improve drug delivery and stability.
Our commitment

Our commitment to quality extends to rigorous stability testing and monitoring of the formulation throughout the manufacturing process, storage, and clinical use. Because we understand the complexities of drug product development, we also undertake comprehensive compatibility studies to assess the interaction of the formulation with a wide range of contact materials. This approach is essential when working with pharmaceutical compounds where precision and safety are paramount.

With CARBOGEN AMCIS, you gain a partner who is dedicated to innovation in formulation development, ensuring that your pharmaceutical products are developed to the highest standards.

Non-GMP Manufacturing

Non-GMP Manufacturing

Non-GMP manufacturing is an integral part of drug development services, providing a flexible, cost-effective, and efficient pathway for early-stage drug development prior to transitioning to GMP-compliant manufacturing.

At CARBOGEN AMCIS, our non-GMP manufacturing services are specifically designed to support the early stages of drug development and formulation. We bring precision and reliability to your development journey by specializing in the production of non-GMP batches for preclinical studies. Using advanced isolator technology, we maintain the low bioburden conditions essential for producing high-quality, contamination-free batches. Providing critical stability data to support the transition to GMP manufacturing, our services are an integral part of the scale-up process.

As a fill and finish CDMO, we provide complete full-service in sterile fill-finish manufacturing for liquid and lyophilized dosage forms that are critical to the final stages of drug product manufacturing.
