One Stop Solution
We support "Manufacturing process development of API and intermediates" to "clinical batch and commercial Production."
Our "Containment Technology" enables to produce the high potent API (HPAPI), hormone API and Beta-lactam antibiotics.
Our Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology and PAT aids the development of robust API process, Spray drying technology enables novel API production.
Pulverization of high pharmacological activity drugs
Counter Jet Mill (Pulverizer) with containment system produces high quality fine API powder. Furthermore, the containment technology robustly protects operators from hazardous compounds exposure.
Counter Jet Mill with Isolator
Spray Dryer capable of using organic solvents
Our various types of spray dryer for using organic solvent are applicable to development phase. Additionally, we propose to improve the solubility of API by "solid dispersion" using spray dryer.
Capacity of spray dryers
Desk-top Experimental Unit 0.2kg/hr
Investigational medicinal product size production Unit 0.8kg/hr
Commercial size production Unit 5kg/hr
Spray Dryer is applicable to Commercial Production
Production Process Development
Our professional CMC R&D staff utilizes their experience and technique in new drug development of high quality API and intermediates production process development. We are dedicated to controlling genotoxic and mutagenic impurities in API, and establish the production processes with priority consideration on safety and environmental. In addition, we support to plan strategy for starting material.

Evaluation for Scale-up
We have developed scaleup platform for achieving the target material with equivalent yield and quality as compared to that of laboratory. We perform scale up simulation and set production parameter by making full use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology and Process Analytical Technology (PAT), based on parameter setting in laboratory.
We establish robust Commercial and Pilot production parameters and conditions based on the result of these simulations. Our professional chemical engineers will propose the solution to meet your needs.
