Tech Transfer


A large pharma company was looking to transfer a wide-ranging portfolio of marketed consumer health products, some medicinal and some food supplements, from in-house GMP manufacture to third-party contract manufacturers. Support included: technical leader for tech transfer team, overseeing product risk analysis and transfer planning; technical resource to perform in-depth CMC health check of existing operations; joint quality leader, managing analytical validations and transfers, and executing a large number of stability studies; on-site support at sending site and receiving sites. The support resulted in successful establishment of GMP operations at the CMOs and valuable data for decision-making on the commercial viability of products within the portfolio.
