This allows the safe handling of highly-potent compounds of all categories including cytostatics/cytotoxics.

We offer services starting from laboratory scale for process research and development purposes up to large scale manufacturing on 8000 L scale including category IV compounds (OEL < 1µg/m³), the highest category in our categorization system.

To support the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) development process through all stages, a variety of high-containment analytical and purification capabilities complement the chemistry service portfolio.
