Clinical trial material manufacturing is only one element of Patheon’s fully integrated pharmaceutical development services. We have the long term experience and broad resources to take your molecule all the way from early development to commercial supply. Our scientists always work with the final product in mind, and our facilities are designed with a commonality of equipment from CTM to commercial. All this allows us to scale your product seamlessly through all phases of development and ultimately to commercialization with exceptional speed and efficiency.

If your project is especially time critical, the Quick to Clinic™ program rapidly accelerates your molecule to First Time in Human (FTIH) studies in a solid dose form using minimal amounts of your valuable Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API). We also offer the option of disposable equipment which eliminates the need for a cleaning method making your project faster and more cost effective.
