    • Lab-scale lyophilization (freeze dryers)
    • Industrial-scale lyophilization (up to 200kg ice/day)
    • Lab- and pilot-scale spray drying
    • Centrifuges
    • Agitate and static plate filters
    • Filter-dryer
    • Extraction devices
    • Hydrogenators
  • Purification

    Peptide specifications are still driven by traditional small molecule manufacturing.  Official regulations for purity and purification are not yet in place, however regulatory guidelines do exist.  The European Pharmacopeia just released its first peptide purity regulations at the end of 2010, and the FDA has released guidance emphasizing a Quality by Design (QbD) approach to process validation for the industry.  Many companies are not aware of these continual regulatory changes and often challenges arise.  Lonza recognizes the need for process regulation and a QbD approach to manufacturing and is committed to the providing you a seamless approach to your peptide pipeline.
