Made by an altogether different kind of CDMO

At Pfizer CentreOne, our open and collaborative approach combined with years of experience helps us support you in taking your compound from scale-up to commercial OSD manufacturing. We have integrated cGMP pilot facilities dedicated to process optimization, clinical drug manufacturing, and scale-up technology transfers that help us on our mission to deliver on what we promise.

Our goal is to always remain transparent, working with you to redesign and optimize your manufacturing processes wherever possible.

Whether you require clinical or commercial manufacturing; we’re dedicated to your product’s long-term success and work closely with you to help produce your products reliably and efficiently.

We deliver multi-product and high containment solutions and manufacturing technologies including:

  • OEL 1-5 engineering controls from 10,000 to 0.01 μg/m3 manufacturing with fully segregated suites for non-potent and highly potent (HPOSD) compounds
  • Specialized solid dose delivery technologies (e.g. active coating, laser drilling)
  • Complex processes (e.g. controlled drugs, multi-particulates low dose/high dose compounds)
  • Primary and secondary packaging, pouching, serialization, and aggregation
  • Advanced process capabilities (e.g. real time release testing)
