Technology Transfers

Combining a purpose-built facility and experienced development scientists

    • Pilot scale facility with relevant technology, equivalent to those used in GMP Stages.
    • Challenge of complex aspects of the formulation, such as temperature, viscosity, contact with
      materials that could induce aggregation or other changes in the molecule.
    • Simulation of formulation, filling, lyophilization and closing procedures.
    • Design space calculation based on DoE and other Six Sigma tools.
    • Engineering, stability, and validation batches and previous physico-chemical characterization.
    • All in-house validation support.

Clinical GMP Production

Flexibility and efficiency combined with regulatory compliance

    • Capacity to deal with limited amount and high value API with special requirements and strict
      timelines. We offer process improvement, scalability and flexibility to meet customers’
    • Purposed built facilities for clinical manufacturing challenges at Liof Pharma: timelines, efficiency,
      versatility and scalability, regulatory acceptance (GMP) and costs.
    • Special equipment for easy format changing, featuring CIP and SIP processes, designed for highly
      efficient small-medium batch production.
    • Manual processing validated for small batches of glass vials, syringes, plastic ampoules and other
      eye drop containers.
    • Maximum Flexibility (single use materials, cold compounding, absence of oxygen, light
      protection, etc.)
    • Preclinical and clinical batch production (Phase I, Phase II, Phase III) with manual, semi-automated
      and automated filling validated processes, matching all customer needs.
    • In house release of clinical batches (QP) and experience to provide regulatory support for the CMC sections of pre-clinical and clinical applications.
