Simplifying your path to the patient – Comprehensive Solutions for Your ADC

SAFC and Baxter’s BioPharma Solutions business (BPS), two of the industry leading contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) in the Antibody-Drug Conjugate (ADC) space, are offering a combined approach for your ADC to simplify the supply chain and provide comprehensive, coordinated and collaborative services for the development, manufacturing, and testing of bulk drug substance (BDS) and drug product (DP).

Antibody-Drug Conjugates (ADCs)

Antibody-drug conjugation technology uses monoclonal antibodies or other biologics to deliver conjugated Highly Active-Pharmaceutical Ingredients (HAPIs) to targeted cells. In conjugated form, the HAPI exhibits more selective cytotoxicity, thereby, sparing non-target cells from many of the toxic effects.
