R&D mission

INNOVATION AT WORK

We innovate to enable us to increase our product portfolio by developing new processes, or to apply the latest methods and technologies to the existing ones by revision and optimization of the chemical reactions and processes involved.

NEW APIs

In the development of new API’s our R&D team provide four key elements of the process:

•  PROCESS RESEARCH
A cost-effective and non infringing process is the main target when starting a new project. To achieve this goal new synthetic methods and innovative technologies are always considered.

•  ANALYTICAL RESEARCH
A full and detailed characterization of products and intermediates is undertaken by a team of skilled technicians, in order to ensure the highest quality requirements for the products under development and the analytical processes that support them.

•  PROCESS DEVELOPMENT
Rigorous definition of the process parameters and conditions, together with a complete safety assessment, are the requirements for an easy scale-up, even with so called standard chemistry.

•  PROCESS INDUSTRIALIZATION
Our R&D team supports all the scale-up phases until the process is validated and the first industrial batches are successfully produced, ensuring a complete and smooth know-how transfer from R&D to the production teams.

EXISTING PRODUCTS

Our R&D team also has an important part to play in relation to existing products:

• PROCESS IMPROVEMENTS
A continuous effort is made also in the area of regular production, in order to improve yields and purity, as well as to reduce waste and costs.

• TROUBLESHOOTING
The R&D team includes an experienced group with technical and practical problem-solving skills devoted to support production.

• TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER
The experience and skills of our R&D team are also involved where technology needs to be transferred from one site to another successfully.
