Symbiosis | Spotlight

Symbiosis Logo

Founded in 2011 Symbiosis Pharmaceutical Services was created to address specific gaps highlighted in the sterile drug product manufacturing marketplace. The aim was to accelerate our clients’ drug development timelines by offering rapid access to sterile fill-finish manufacturing slots and product release services. Symbiosis Pharmaceutical Services is a contract manufacturing organisation (CMO) that specialises in the manufacture and sterile fill/finish of vials for clinical trials and low-volume commercial supply. Regulatory compliance, technical capability and operational flexibility are at its core.

Manufacturing takes place in a purpose-built MHRA-licensed and FDA approved facility based in Stirling enabling the CMO to handle products that require aseptic liquid filling and lyophilisation for a range of complex biologics, viral vectors for use in gene therapies and small molecule drugs. 

Capabilities include the ability to handle and fill antibodies, proteins, peptides, nucleic acids, cytotoxic, cytostatic and highly potent APIs including ADCs along with conventional small molecules.
