Summary of our Services

We have proven expertise in the development and manufacturing of human and veterinary steroids. We are one of the top steroid manufacturers and our services include:

  • 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

Accelerating Drug Discovery Through Innovative Partnerships

Genomics plays a vital role in identifying which gene is associated with a specific disease. A gene called CNOT1 is for example known for it's effect on brain development and for impairing memory and learning. Despite the great promise genomics provides in understanding the disease, genes are not the best drug targets....

Expediting early development through innovative precision capsule filling technology

Introduction: Any new chemical entity (NCE) needs to undergo various stages of development such as preclinical and clinical trials before drug product is approved by regulatory agencies and available for patient. Formulations developed during early phases are simple formulations to enable phase appropriate studies like screening, dose ranging, toxicological and d...

Revisiting the reaction of b-chloroacroleins with 2-aminophenol: a new observation


The reaction of b-chloroacrolein with 1 equiv of 2-aminophenol in DMF proceeds smoothly to afford 11-hydroxy derivative of chromenoquinoline in good yield. This single pot method allows for a rapid access to a variety of chromenoquinolines or oxepinoquinolines depending on the nature of b-chloroacrolein used. The structures were established by spectroscopic data ...
