Cipan has developed, either through its own investment or through CDO strategies, three generations of APIs derived from Tetracycline: Tetracycline, Minocycline, Lymecycline, Oxytetracycline, and other third-generation molecules that are currently in commercial phase (CMO) or development (CDO).
Cipan is one of the top 3 companies in producing APIs through fermentation processes, or chemical synthesis processes, which makes it very versatile and the right partner to understand the needs of any client.
