technical development is multifaceted

The development of new and innovative product formulations is core to our business. We develop, adapt and apply modern technologies and state-of-the-art analytical techniques to create new medicinal products.

Our area of responsibility covers the CMC (chemistry, manufacturing and control) of new products and the provision of clinical trial supplies. We are dedicated to this exciting task with over 80 employees in Cambridge and Limburg.

To meet our targets, the Technical Development teams embrace the culture of the organisation, working closely with the other functions at Mundipharma Research. The regular internal exchange of information, the complex spectrum of tasks, the scope of technical opportunities and the modern lab environment make for a creative working atmosphere and supports the high quality of our results.

Technology to create functionality

Using state-of-the-art lab equipment, we develop pioneering formulations from new and existing active ingredients. This includes the development of suitable dosage forms often using creative technology to control release of the active ingredient and provide maximum benefit to the patient. Manufacture and packaging of new drug products essential through all stages from conception, small scale manufacture, up to transfer into production and product licensing.

Know how!

We are also responsible for the manufacture, packaging, labelling, distribution and accountability of product supplies for phase I to IV clinical trials. That's an organisational and logistical tour de force! After all, since the foundation of the organisation in 2006, we have supported over 75 clinical studies in more than 34 countries.

Quality – without fail!

The quality of our products is designed and built in at every stage of development and manufacturing, from raw material to the final dosage form.  Modern manufacturing equipment and instrumental analysis in both Cambridge and Limburg ensures our products meet the highest standards from the day of manufacture and for the duration of its shelf life. Our work is supported by modern IT infrastructure which ensures secure data generation and retrieval and minimises errors due to human intervention. We are a team of multidisciplinary, highly trained scientists working together to develop new formulations. Our success comes from the commitment of the team who rise to every daily challenge.
