Contract Manufacturing

We satisfy broad needs ranging from GCTP-compliant manufacturing, quality assessment, storage to transport

Contract Manufacturing Overview

We offer flexible support from test manufacturing for pharmaceutical affairs consultation to manufacturing for clinical trials

For many of cellular and tissue based products, long-term storage and long-distance transportation face challenges that are difficult to overcome. PharmaBio offers a solution of a domestic manufacturing base for clinical trials within Japan.

In our own manufacturing facilities, we stably produce investigational new drugs that satisfy the quality standards required by both clients and Japanese regulatory authorities, and implement strict quality controls through to storage and transport of the products. Furthermore, we address manufacture-related issues, such as development of necessary technologies, inspection and verification of manufacturing processes, and validation.
