Outsource your Fast-Track Biologic Drug Development


Confidently shorten your timelines to commercialization with an agile, full-service biologics CDMO partner for greater speed, foresight, and regulatory support.

Once you receive a fast-track, orphan drug or breakthrough therapy designation, timelines compress. You need to move aggressively toward milestones while remaining closely aligned with regulatory requirements and avoiding risks that might delay or derail your project.

When time is of the essence, you need a CDMO partner with the experience and ability to:

  • Deliver against shrinking timelines without sacrificing quality and safety
  • Anticipate and plan for commercial-scale manufacturing from the beginning
  • Understand, interpret and adapt to regulatory expectations
  • Respond to unpredictability in market demand
  • Safeguard the supply chain of raw materials

Here’s how you’ll benefit from our Fast-Track Drug Development Service

Single-Source CDMO for all Development and Manufacturing Operations

Includes cell line development, process and analytical development, clinical and commercial-scale production of drug substance and drug product, including raw material supply

Flexibility as Regulatory Requirements Evolve

The ability to adjust process development and validation strategies based on feedback and requirements from regulatory authorities.

Support for Meetings with Regulatory Agencies

  • Dedicated regulatory expert throughout the duration of the project
  • Assistance in discussions with sponsor and regulatory health authorities
  • Assistance in sponsor IND/BLA submission
  • Redaction of CMC package clinical and commercial
  • Post IND/BLA submission support

Accelerated Timelines

The potential to advance from DNA to IND in 12 months and from process characterization to commercial production in 24 months.

Open and Transparent Communication

Your project manager serves as your single point of contact from start to finish, ensures close collaboration, and coordinates direct interface with your technical, operations and quality teams, as well as support for meetings with regulatory agencies.

Confidence from an Integrated Value Chain

Multiple, full single-use manufacturing suites, each equipped with similar equipment at same scales from 200L to 2,000L. This allows for de-risked, streamlined technology transfer from clinical to commercial scales across sites, without the need for process fitting and with simplified process validation.

Security of Commercial Supply

We produce up to 80% of the raw materials used in your process. With control over the supply chain, we mitigate risks associated with disruptions and unpredictable drug production forecasts. Harmonization of equipment across sites, along with use of templated processes, allows us to stockpile critical materials for production.
