Small Molecule API Development

Fifty-eight percent of medicines in development are small molecules—many of which feature highly potent molecules. Additionally, 70% of drugs in development have solubility issues, requiring special attention to formulation. With competitive options for API outsourcing in all geographical regions, it can be difficult to choose the right partner for your project, regardless of its complexity.
