“We are regular exhibitors at the event, which connects the pharmaceutical community with outsourcing solution providers. CPhI Worldwide / ICSE is the world’s largest exhibition for global pharmaceutical ingredients, fine chemicals, excipients and intermediates – all core areas for Supercritical Fluids division,” commented Bernard Freiss.
“Regarding our Supercritical Fluids Department, people can meet us on the Pierre Fabre CDMO stand to see how our services can meet their need in term of development of poorly soluble API, reformulation of already marketed APIs and more besides,” said Mr. Freiss.
The team will be reaching out to R&D managers, business development and formulation experts for whom process efficiency and effectiveness and cGMP compliance are critical issues.
“We’ll also be showing ways for clients to transfer their whole process into Supercritical Fluids state of the art facilities to optimize production and carry out demanding cGMP manufacture in batches,” he added.
