From Discovery to Phase III and Commercialisation

KABS’s integrated teams offer advanced support and solutions for drugs, biologics and generic products development. All aspects of drug product development are performed at reasonable cost with efficient timeline management.

New drugs and biologics

Preclinical Development
Project management

Projects are managed by Team leaders integrating analytical R&D, Product Development R&D, Manufacturing and Quality Assurance, all located at one site.

Regulatory affairs

Our regulatory affairs specialists provide both strategic and tactical support during early development phases leading to toxicology studies and IND filings.

Audits of suppliers

The synthesis of API is a global market that requires intensive regulatory and technical monitoring. Our QA department audits manufacturing sites worldwide.

API synthesis strategies, solid state chemistry, specification

We provide full support for selection of intermediates manufacturers, chirality aspects, characterization of amorphous states, evaluation of process impurities, crystallization strategies with respect to polymorphism, hygroscopy and stability, development of specification.

Development of bioprocesses

KABS bioprocess team prepares and purifies your secondary metabolites and proteins. Our services include cell culture condition improvement, optimization of growth and/or expression factors, scale-up, purification process development, and protein/metabolites modification.

Physico-chemical characterization of initial batches of API

We perform thorough physico-chemical characterization and stability testing, keeping in mind strategic aspects involved in qualifying process impurities observed in initial batches of API to be used in toxicology studies.

Pre-formulation prototypes for human phase I

A sizable proportion of small molecules and biologics are not readily soluble and/or bioavailable. Solubility and bioavailability are modulated via specific crystalline forms, micronization, surfactants, pairing agents, and trans-membrane transport co-factors. KABS offers a range of solid dosage formulation predictive modeling tools involving partition studies, Pampa Plate Systems, Franz osmotic systems to predict solubility and bioavailability of experimental formulations.

Design of formulations for toxicological studies

Formulations for animal toxicology studies must be simple, stable and homogeneous. KABS pre-formulation teams are working with these objectives in mind.

Phases I, II and III
Engineering considerations in future scaling-up of manufacturing process

KABS formulation strategies include scaling-up criteria insuring that formulation that are successful in phases I and II will be scalable to mass production equipment for phase III and ulterior phases leading to commercialization.

Development of CMC dossiers for API and drugs product

Over the years KABS has developed expertise in the generation, interpretation and integration of cGMP compliant data into sound CMC dossiers

Manufacturing, labelling and distribution to clinical sites

Our cGMP compliant manufacturing plants and laboratories are located on the same site. In-process testing is performed rapidly, reducing costly delays in manufacturing. KABS offers cGMP and GCP compliant labelling/blinding protocols and distribution to your clinical sites.

Transfer of manufacturing process for mass production

Formulations and processes developed at KABS are designed for easy scale-up. We offer full support for transferring pilot manufacturing processes to mass production plants.

Generic products

Reverse engineering

Our analytical R&D group and formulators have developed solid expertise in reverse engineering of formulation and manufacturing methods.

Evaluation of generic API

Generic drug substances are often synthesized by alternate routes generating unusual impurities. Solid-state characteristics of generic substances may be different from the desired characteristics. KABS helps identify and solve these potential pitfalls before they become expensive problems.

cGMP compliance audit of drugs substances manufacturers

The synthesis of drugs substances is a global market that requires regulatory and technical monitoring. Our QA department audits manufacturing sites worldwide.

Small scale manufacturing/testing of generic prototypes

Bioequivalence is achieved using equivalent solid state characteristics, formulation and manufacturing processes. Close collaboration between our formulation/manufacturing and analytical groups insure rapid testing of generic prototypes manufactured under various microscale conditions.

Scaling up of manufacturing process for bioequivalence studies

Formulations and manufacturing processes developed at KABS are configured for direct scale-up to bioequivalence clinical batches.

Scaling up of manufacturing process for mass production

KABS provides full technical and regulatory support for process transfer to mass production facilities.


Development of bioprocesses

KABS biopolymers team prepare and purify proteins and antibodies. Our services include process development in aqueous based synthesis, modification and purification/desalting via TFF.
