Small Molecule (SM) Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) manufacturing is changing with the pipeline of the future including molecules of increasing complexity (such as ADC’s and macrocyclic peptides), lower volume and higher potency products and increasing utilisation of new and sustainable technologies such as flow chemistry, continuous manufacturing, photo and biocatalyst driven chemical synthesis.

To enable this change, we are investing in flexible facilities and infrastructure with small-scale trains for multiproduct commercialisation for low volume and high potent API. As well as future specialised skills for new technologies. The facilities will manufacture APIs for late phase clinical, launch and early commercial supply using both batch and continuous manufacturing technology.
