Novasep CDMO Services For HPAPIs Banner

Demand for Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (HPAPIs) is growing strongly, driven by the need for targeted medicines in the oncology field. Due to their high pharmacological activity, the development and manufacturing of HPAPIs requires high containment facilities operated by experienced personnel. By nature, HPAPIs are often complex molecules & need specialized technologies for multi-step synthesis and purification.

Novasep offers a full range of CDMO services for HPAPIs, with 2 sites experienced in high potency manufacturing:

  • The Le Mans site, located in France, is a facility dedicated to the development & manufacture of HPAPIs & cytotoxics. The site is equipped to handle compounds with an OEL below 30 ng/m³/8hrs and a maximum batch size of 10 kgs. The site provides a full and flexible range of ADC manufacturing services with a broad experience on different conjugation platforms & payloads types.
  • The Chasse-sur-Rhône site, located in France, is a flexible facility offering a full range of CDMO services for APIs and intermediates. The site is equipped to handle Potent APIs with an OEL to 1 μg/m³/8hrs and a maximum batch size of 350 kgs.
