The successful transition from initial synthesis of an API to a kilogram-scale route requires expert analysis and design. In addition to optimizing each intermediate reaction, chemists must balance economic, regulatory and time constraints. Furthermore, designing the best synthesis route for GLP and GMP production cannot begin without adequate knowledge of the compound, and it may require high-purity intermediates. Each API presents a unique set of challenges.
These barriers do not stall Cambrex from delivering on time. State-of-the-art facilities armed with world class experts and vast experience drive our success in designing the best synthetic route for each API. In this case study, our experts developed a robust, high-yield process to enable GMP production under tight time pressure for a first-in-human clinical trial.
