Advanced Manufacturing & PCM

Pharmatech Associates’ collaborative efforts with USP and other healthcare stakeholders help lower barriers to the adoption of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies with pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing (PCM) as part of a solution to mitigate supply chain disruption and drug shortages and bring more quality products to market safely, sustainably, and cost-effectively.

Advanced Therapies & Biologics

Pharmatech, a wholly owned subsidiary of USP, continues to expand its capabilities that enable customers to consistently and efficiently produce cell and gene therapies and mABs therapies, that offer patients targeted treatments for a wide range of serious health conditions and diseases. In a recent client engagement for a pre-IND cell and gene therapy company requiring regulatory strategy to protect their proprietary starting material, Pharmatech Associates performed a development gap analysis that highlighted risks within their current program. The result was a clear roadmap that aligned with the client’s business and IP strategy that they could use to chart their downstream FDA obligations, budget, and financing needs to fund their overall program.
