Manufacturing for Pulmonary Delivery

One-Site-Stop for inhalation products. Less regulatory hurdles, less time, less costs.


The nature of our work gives us the best of both worlds: we support and share the challenges of pharmaceutical development and all the science behind it but also the work in a controlled environment as a GMP certified manufacturing facility.

State of the art manufacturing plant

Our technology and equipment enable us to work with highly potent products, ensuring high containment and safety. At the same time, our facility built in engineering solutions ensure multiple product manufacturing areas with a low risk of cross contamination.

We supply different manufacturing scales, integrating solutions from early clinical development up to commercial.

Our facilities are also inspected and approved by all major regulatory authorities and audited by multiple clients every year.
