Becoming a well-rounded biopharmaceutical expert starts at a contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO).
When a pharmaceutical company establishes the formula for a new drug, they will enlist the help of a CDMO to navigate the highly regulated drug development framework required by the FDA. Having a CDMO partner can be a great resource with benefits for bio/pharmaceutical companies to focus their efforts and resources on initiatives that move their company forward.1
According a leading career consultant, CDMOs are an excellent place to start your career1:
- It’s Where the Jobs Are
As the market changes and pharmaceutical companies outsource R&D and manufacturing, opportunities in this space become limited. This presents CDMOs as a great option for recent graduates. CDMOs are always looking to support their workforce with the best talent. Educated graduates who are ready to kick on with their career end up working on the next big biotech or pharma projects at the CDMOs they join.
- Training and Development
Working at a CDMO allows you to participate in various projects, collaborate with people with different skill sets between different departments. To attract graduates, they often offer strong development programs with both internal and external training.
Pharmaceutics International, Inc. (Pii) is a US-based, science-driven CDMO with a passion for solving problems. Pii’s Hunt Valley, Maryland, campus includes 70 manufacturing suites with four integrated aseptic filling lines. We offer unparalleled scientific insight and depth of product knowledge to supply high quality dosage forms that enhance the lives of patients worldwide.
Pii has more than 360,000 sq. ft. of operating space. Our cGMP and DEA-registered facilities are state-of-the-art and contain more than 70 manufacturing suites, including containment areas for handling high potency compounds and hormones, dedicated manufacturing suites for oral products (i.e. soft gels) and injectables (i.e. vials, syringes, cartridges), a formulation development center, and ultra-modern analytical and micro laboratories.
Pii Has the Capabilities Bio/Pharma Needs
Pii wants to tackle the difficult projects that other CDMOs turn away. We can handle early-stage development projects to get clients into the clinic faster and we can scale up these projects to commercial manufacture.
We want to fill out our capacity in all our existing plants and we have technology and capabilities to do so. For instance, we have massive analytical labs with HPLCs as far as the eye can see. And, Pii has the assets to offer contract analytical services, method development and validation, and stability testing. Our in-house analytical capabilities align with our other core development functions so that our scientific team can accelerate timelines and scale up formulations.
As a CDMO, Pii has supported aseptic fill-finish manufacturing since 2006, specializing in NDAs, NCEs, DEA-scheduled products, and most recently, biologics. Pii’s Groninger syringe line supports batch sizes up to 50,000 syringes per day with pre-filled syringe sizes ranging from 1mL through 5mL.
