  • Thursday, October 16, 2014

The manufacturing strategy of an API needs to be carefully configured to support all points in its life cycle. Whether an API is in an introduction, growth or maturity phase will decisively determine its manufacturing process requirements. In this webinar, we will use case studies to examine how Cambrex manages the API life cycle through innovation, process and cost improvement. By carefully considering our customer’s API life cycle prerequisites, Cambrex can provide large, mid-size and emerging pharmaceutical companies additional opportunities to meet their changing small molecule needs. Ultimately, this helps bring customers’ products to market quickly while supporting the API life cycle through to maturity.

Cambrex’s innovative product group will detail their objective and describe how customers can benefit from their innovative approach to develop new sustainable routes or processes, by which additional IP protection can be generated, cost of goods lessened, and/or environmental footprints reduced.

Join us as we explore and showcase how Cambrex can manage your API life cycle through innovation, process and cost improvements, to meet your API development needs and help you move your products quickly to market.
