Potent Compounds Manufacturing and Handling

Safe Handling of High-Potent Drug Product Manufacturing

Cytotoxic and high-potent compound development require specialized equipment and handling to prevent harm to our people and the environment. At UPM, we have robust processes and technologies in place for safe commercial-scale, high-potent drug product manufacturing.

High Potent

Many small molecule APIs in the pharmaceutical pipeline today have increased potency. These compounds can affect workers and the environment at very low concentration levels and therefore require special equipment and handling capabilities to ensure proper containment and prevent their release into the air.

UPM Pharmaceuticals has the capability to process potent compound development to commercial quantities. Potent compounds manufacturing takes place in glove boxes with tabletop equipment at bench scale and moves up to compound-dedicated suites with appropriate airflow controls and outfitted with the necessary full-scale containment equipment.
