The portfolio is divided into four categories:

  • Emprove® Evolve is for early stages of biopharmaceutical manufacturing, bridging the gap between lab-grade and GMP compliant raw and starting materials while providing transparent supply chain information and documentation.
  • Emprove® Essential is for moderate-risk applications, offering compliance to IPEC-PQG GMP Guide and/or EXCiPACT™ Certification Standard, as well as supply chain transparency and regulatory support designed to assist drug manufacturers’ formalized risk assessments.
  • Emprove® Expert is for higher-risk applications where the lowest microbiological and endotoxin levels are of utmost importance. Along with the risk management features of Emprove® Essential, the Emprove® Expert line yields products with specified low microbiological and endotoxin levels, supporting the overall risk mitigation strategy.
  • Emprove® API is for final drug product compliance with international standards, manufactured in Europe to meet the quality and regulatory requirements of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) according to ICH Q7 GMP. Dedicated support by our regulatory management team includes access to extensive documentation, such as DMFs, CEP, and ASMF.

Keeping up with evolving regulations of raw materials

Critical raw materials used during production processes have no clearly defined regulatory standards or quality requirements, but are coming more and more into regulatory focus. We continue to advance our Emprove® Chemicals portfolio with the recent addition of the Emprove® Evolve product line, providing fit-for-purpose high-quality raw materials for early stage manufacturing applications. As developing regulatory requirements for critical raw materials pose new challenges, we will continue to evolve our offerings to support your quality risk assessment with detailed documentation and supply chain transparency and control.
