Fermentation is a critical step in both drug and toll manufacturing, as companies look to produce the core compounds that form their eventual products. While it is possible to undertake this in-house, the expertise contract fermentation services provide can improve the quality, affordability, speed and scalability of your program.
With more than 60 years of leadership in the field, AbbVie Contract Manufacturing offers fine-tuned contract fermentation services. We bring the same degree of expertise and passion to your project as we do with our own, supporting you from strain development through to large-scale commercial manufacturing.
AbbVie’s contract fermentation services span many organisms, stages, industries and production volumes. These include:
Yeast and microbial organisms consume large amounts of water and nutrients, making pharmaceutical fermentation processes resource-heavy endeavors. For time and cost-efficiency, AbbVie Contract Manufacturing has established a 70-acre facility in North Chicago, IL USA, to sustainably draw on local crops and water sources. This unique access to raw materials used for industrial fermentation directly benefits pharmaceutical and toll manufacturing partners looking for high quality, cost-effective contract fermentation services.
Once established, companies can scale-up fermentation orders as commercial demand grows. AbbVie is committed to maintaining a secure supply chain to reliably meet long-term toll manufacturing and pharmaceutical fermentation demand.
AbbVie contract manufacturing has proven experience fermenting a range of organisms for pharmaceutical and toll manufacturer programs. These include streptomycetes, actinomycetes, yeast, fungal, E. coli, bacillus and genetically modified organisms.
Our access to raw materials used for industrial fermentation enables a high quality cost-effective bio-fermentation process.
