Injectables & Biologics

Pierre Fabre CDMO offers its customers the development and production of monoclonal antibodies and ADCs as well as toll manufacturing of injectable products (cytotoxic agents, monoclonal antibodies, ADCs, vaccines, etc.).
The technical experts at the Saint-Julien-en-Genevois plant (Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, France) are recognized by the international scientific community. Since 2018, they have been offering Pierre Fabre partners all the steps in the generation of the MCB up to production of clinical batches of antibodies and conjugation to a cytotoxic agent, in GMP conditions, within competitive time-frames.
Since 1991, the Pau plant (Nouvelle Aquitaine region, France), with EMA, FDA, PMDA and ANVISA certification, has been offering Pierre Fabre customers Fill & Finish activities using an aseptic process or terminal sterilization. The Pau plant workshops have two syringe filling lines (0.5 to 10 ml), eight vial filling lines (1 to 40 ml) and six freeze dryers offering the possibility of producing batches of 10,000 to 200,000 vials per line. Since 2018, the Toulouse Langlade pilot site (South of France) has offered capacities that enable us to meet our customers' clinical batch requirements. Finally, the visual inspection—most of which is performed manually—guarantees a very high-quality end product.
