  • Derivatives of steroids viz., peptides, small molecules, carbohydrates, and methoxy PEGs
  • Process optimization and robust development of multi-step organic synthesis
  • Handling of organometallic reagents, oxidations, reductions, hydrogenations, protection-deprotection and cryogenic reactions
  • Analytical support for development, impurity profiling and characterization based on spectral methods
  • Regulatory filings

Steroid Manufacturing Facility: World-class Infrastructure to Support Steroid Manufacturing

Our facility in Cuernavaca, Mexico is a US FDA-inspected site with a legacy of manufacturing 15+ steroidal APIs and intermediates. The manufacturing building* (bays) for steroids are dedicated and physically separated from non-steroid production bays.

  • Steroids are manufactured in Mexico using dedicated blocks
  • Multiple modules for manufacturing
  • Mix of SS, GL and Hastelloy reactors
  • State-of-the-art clean room facilities
  • Electronically controlled pressure differentials and airlock systems
  • Decontamination rooms for personnel and product containers, containment for offloading and milling
  • State-of-the-art reaction system to handle cryogenic reactions below -150 ºC
  • HVAC systems for steroids buildings are also separated systems from non-steroids buildings
  • Highest international HS and E Standards are applied in manufacturing areas
  • Warehousing: we have dedicated warehousing that is physically segregated with independent HVAC for storage of steroidal RMs, intermediates, and APIs
  • Strict procedures (full cGMP’s internal SOPs) are followed for materials handling in warehouses and dispensing areas
  • Utilities like nitrogen and water that has direct contact with raw materials or products are separate for steroidal as well as non-steroidal block
  • Specifications, analytical methods, analytical records, and SOPs are in place for the quality management of all materials in full compliance
  • We have a highly experienced team of chemists, analysts, and process engineers. Personnel in manufacturing areas are well trained and qualified for operating both steroidal and non-steroidal processes

Neoantigen Specific T cells For Cancer Immunotherapy

Neoantigen specific T cells for cellular cancer immunotherapy An effective anti-tumor immune response in human is marked by presence of T cells reactive against neoantigens. Neoantigens are HLA-bound unique peptides arise from tumor-specific somatic mutations. Neoantigens are highly immunogenic because they are not present in normal tissues and hence...
