Our Dedicated Contract Manufacturing Plant

The Ikeda Pharmaceutical Plant went online in March 2005 as a dedicated contract manufacturing plant for cephalosporin and carbapenem antibiotics. The drugs that we manufacture are injectable drugs that are hypersensitive to even the smallest amount of contamination. For this reason we installed a sophisticated air conditioning system to ensure a contained, sterile, dust-free environment for the antibiotics. We are able to provide fully-integrated contract manufacturing from testing upon raw ingredient intake to final product shipment, and we produce powder-filled vials, freeze-dried vials and freeze-dried ampoules. Our packaging line is equipped with a shrink-wrapper and an auto-cartoner that allow us to package products according to a wide range of specifications.
