IDT Pharma

from api r&d to finished dose manufacture

Video Tour of the Melbourne Campus

IDT Pharma specialises in the development, scale-up, and cGMP clinical and commercial manufacture of high potency and cytotoxic API and finished drug product.  Since 1975 we have gained extensive experience developing cytotoxics, anti-cancer drugs, antibiotics, beta lactams and controlled drugs.  Our API facilities offer fully scalable processes from laboratory R&D to commercial scale using multistep chemical synthesis in both dedicated and flexible (ISO 8) manufacturing space streamlining your scale up pathway.

Oral finished dosage forms such as powders, hard gelatin capsules and film coated tablets are manufactured from small R&D and clinical trial scale through to commercial volumes in full containment suites and our state of the art, dedicated beta lactam commercial manufacturing facility can manufacture beta lactam API, tablets and sterile parenterals (lyophilisation) in vials.

Full Service

Full analytical method development, validation and testing (including microbiology) of both API’s and finished dosage forms can  be conducted in our high containment laboratories to enable analysis of highly toxic or highly potent products, along with stability testing under all ICH conditions.

IDT Australia also offers a comprehensive range of specialist clinical trial labelling, packaging and dispensing services and can manufacture, under cGMP, active and placebo clinical trial supplies in a wide variety of dosage forms, including tablets, coated tablets, capsules, suspensions, liquids, sprays, patches, lyophilised powders and ointments.
