Develco News


The planning for our new Fluid Bed Dryer started a year ago. Last week, the 3.5 ton equipment was delivered. The Fluid Bed Dryer had to be transported through the roof of the production hall, which required extremely precise work. We are proud, that through good communication and teamwork, as well as technical expertise, the new equipment was safely transported into our production building.
„The installation went very well, and everything was well coordinated,“ says Daniel Kaiser, our technical manager. The roof was already closed again in the evening. Also on the following days, everything went very well with the installation of the remaining parts. Qualification will start to be operational with the new equipment in Q2.
With our new Fluid Bed Dryer, Develco is able to produce more important medicines for patients in need.

We are excited and very proud that Develco has been awarded Top Formulation Development Outsourcing Company in Europe 2022 by Pharma Tech Outlook.

„The art of creative drug formulation from active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) requires technical expertise and utmost precision. Innovative dosage forms or delivery systems direct a drug to its specific site of action and optimise the timing of the drug release. While enhancing patient comfort and convenience, these innovations can increase efficacy and promote better health care. Against this backdrop, Swiss-German pharmaceutical company Develco Pharma specialises in developing and manufacturing orally-administered modified release drugs and prolonged/ chrono-release drug delivery systems. Develco provides licenses of its curated products to international pharmaceutical companies for commercialization in their respective markets…“ (Pharma Tech Outlook, 2022)

Generic medicines are an important pillar to healthcare systems around the world. Just in Europe, they are estimated to save over 100 Billion Euros per year. In our continuous pursuit to increase access to these medicines, Develco is pleased to announce the first Decentralized Procedure (DCP) closure of its Tapentadol Prolonged Release Tablets. With several other DCPs and National Registration procedures lined up, covering the full breadth of dosage strengths, Develco is well slated to be the first or amongst the first wave of launches in Europe.

Development of generic medicines is a complex process and it requires a carefully designed formulation strategy, an exhaustive set of human bioequivalent studies and thereon a scale-up & transfer to commercial manufacturing. This DCP closure from European authorities comes on the back of several BE studies performed by Develco in Europe.  

Utilizing its innovative sustained released and modified release technology, Develco has developed and is developing several other Complex Generic, Branded and Life Cycle Management Products and would continue to support access of such important medicines to patients across the globe.
