A Seamless Transition

Upon successful completion of early-stage clinical trials, your project will move from our ResCom® (Responsive and Committed) process development center in Regensburg, Germany to our late-stage/commercial production facility in Linz, Austria. We maintain a tight alignment of teams and technologies between these two sites to ensure that the tech transfer and scale-up process is as rapid and efficient as possible.

It doesn’t matter how unique or complex your process, or how large your demand, or whether you have a new product or need to ensure the security of an established product’s commercial supply. With Patheon as your strategic partner you’ll have access to all the expertise, technologies and reliable quality you need to bring simplicity and peace of mind to your commercial supply.

The Best Solution for the Worst Situations

It takes a serious situation for a pharmaceutical company to make changes to the commercial supply of API for an established product: Persistent regulatory issues, fluctuations in quality, an outdated facility or the need for more capacity. Companies fear that switching will lead to market share eroding interruptions of supply, require expensive and time-consuming process revisions, and trigger regulatory hurdles. Make the move to Patheon, and make those risks all but disappear.

Your Team. Your Show: You will immediately be assigned a multidisciplinary team dedicated to your project’s success. All work and communication will be coordinated by a project manager with years of experience as well as deep scientific and technical knowledge. You will have all the transparency and access you need to drive your project forward on your terms.

Unrevised Process: We offer most all the technologies common in API manufacturing – plus others that are only available from Patheon. In most cases, we are able to run processes with minimal or no revision. That means rapid turnaround and no special regulatory filings.

Uninterrupted Supply: Tech transfers at Patheon have been recognized with international industry awards. We are quick, but we are also thorough in our completion of validation campaigns and stability studies. So depending upon your current situation, there’s no reason to anticipate an interruption of supply.
