A&C’s GMP custom ingredient and GMP manufacturing process is composed of 5 main phases:

1. Initiation phase

During this phase all of your specific needs for the customized excipients or raw materials are described and verified with our capabilities. This will already involve extensive communication between our respective departments. We will move to the next phase when we have established a joint fit.

2. Development phase

A dedicated project team will initiate small-scale development to meet your needs. You will receive development-phase raw materials for your internal evaluation. This phase may include multiple steps to achieve the desired result. After your approval we will move to the upscaling phase.

3. Upscaling phase

The development-phase product is handed over to our Process Development Department for large-scale production trials. You will assess if this trial product still meets your requirements. Small adjustments based on your evaluation can still be incorporated in this phase.

4. Validation phase

In this phase, the manufacturing process is validated according to our internal procedures based on GMP manufacturing standards. Upon successful completion of our validation and clearance of this product, you can use it for your commercial production.

5. Commercial phase

The newly developed excipients or raw materials are embedded in our regular organization and will be supplied according to the agreed conditions.
