Small Molecule API CMO Sourcing Center
The FDA defines Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) as any substance or mixture of substances intended to be used as the active ingredient in the manufacture of a drug or medicinal product.
Your API may need to be in the form of liquids, powders, crystals and extracts, and processed by chemical synthesis, plant extraction, or other means. The synthesis of small-molecule APIs, although successfully performed for decades, still presents a complicated, multi-step process involving chemical transformations and operations on a range of raw materials with different physical and chemical properties. Specialized expertise is needed to achieve success, from small-scale development, to cGMP clinical and commercial quantities.
