Peptides, Lipids & Carbohydrates Platform Brochure

Platform Description

The CordenPharma Peptides, Lipids & Carbohydrates Platform is comprised of Bio-organic Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) & Excipients (Peptides, Lipids & Carbohydrates).

CordenPharma experts manufacture Peptide APIs using solid-phase, solution-phase, and hybrid solid-solution phase technology at all scales. The wide range of downstream processing capabilities, including preparative HPLC purification, benefits manufacturing at any stage of development.

CordenPharma is additionally well-known for expertise in synthetic Lipid and Carbohydrate manufacturing. To complete the fully-integrated service offering, CordenPharma supports customers with Fill & Finish and Pharma Packaging / Logistic services (clinical trial kits, randomization & logistics).

Platform Capabilities

Peptide Manufacturing

With streamlined process development, scale-up and large-scale manufacture, CordenPharma’s Peptide expertise is supported by three cGMP peptide API facilities: CordenPharma Colorado (USA), CordenPharma Brussels (BE), and CordenPharma Switzerland (CH). In addition to the GMP facility process development teams and to increase R&D throughput, the CordenPharma’s Frankfurt Peptide Centre of Excellence supports all facilities with process design, development and non-GMP synthesis.

CordenPharma’s streamlined process development and scale-up approach is enhanced by equipment design which mimics large-scale production to avoid/limit deviations associated with the equipment engineering. We have designed state-of-the-art equipment to efficiently respond to customer needs at any scale and stage of development, ultimately resulting in cost-effective Peptide manufacturing.

CordenPharma are also recognized experts in:

  • >> Pegylated Peptides
  • >> GLP-1 Peptides & Long Peptide Sequences
  • >> Cyclic Peptides; Peptides with multiple (up to 4) disulfide bridges
  • >> Fatty Acid & Carbohydrate Conjugated Peptides
  • >> Arginine-rich Peptides
  • >> Peptide Mimetic Synthesis
  • >> Short Peptides (up to 12 residues), often with no preparative HPLC purification

Lipid Manufacturing

CordenPharma is a well-known expert in synthetic Lipid process development, scale-up and large-scale manufacturing, including custom lipids and standard lipids (Glycero-Phospholipids, Sphingolipids, Cationic Lipids), for which CordenPharma holds several Drug Master Files (DMFs).

CordenPharma supports customers’ needs for Custom Lipids as Drug Delivery Systems or as APIs. Over the past several years CordenPharma has developed substantial expertise in Custom Lipid Synthesis (particularly in cationic lipids manufacturing). These lipid manufacturing services complement our offering of API and Drug Product services.

Carbohydrate Manufacturing

Over years of extensive experience, CordenPharma has gained expertise in the manufacturing of various aspects of complex Carbohydrates, including Oligosaccharides, covering major areas such as, but not limited to:

  • >> Carbohydrate-based Vaccines (solution-phase oligosaccharide synthesis)
  • >> Carbohydrate-based Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs)
  • >> Manufacturing of Carbohydrate-based delivery systems (e.g. GalNac derivatives)
  • >> Carbohydrate Conjugates for receptor targeting – conjugation to Lipids and / or Peptides

CordenPharma is uniquely positioned to support customers from initial mg- synthesis, in our R&D laboratory to kg-scale manufacturing under cGMP from either CordenPharma Switzerland or CordenPharma Colorado. We are well-equipped to handle long manufacturing sequences on a commercial scale (> 20 steps), including large-scale chromatography, and have in-depth know-how of analytical and regulatory requirements for this class of molecules.

Integrated Supply

CordenPharma’s ability to develop and manufacture a wide range of Bio-Organic APIs, Finished Dosage and Packaging in our network of facilities allows clients full access to integrated services. This results in a simplified supply chain, reduced risk and cost associated with technology transfers, and ultimately faster production and delivery timelines.
