CorePharma has the ability to fill, label, and package solid-dose tablets and capsules; additionally, we have established relationships with vendors who specialize in micronization, blister packaging, and powder filling. Leveraging these external partnerships, we manufacture solvent-based products using a variety of technologies. In addition, these relationships permit us to handle highly potent compounds or compounds that require containment.

The CorePharma Research & Development Center is located in a newly constructed building within the CorePharma campus in Middlesex, New Jersey. This multifunctional facility boasts the latest in analytical equipment and, most importantly, more than 30 professionals with decades of experience. Our 6 processing rooms are equipped to develop oral tablet, capsule, and pellet dosages and are outfitted with negative pressure to prevent crosscontamination. Our team is experienced in handling and developing controlled substances, including Schedule II, III, IV, and V drugs.

The latest addition to the CorePharma Research & Development center is an innovative analytical development research lab housing basic laboratory equipment, as well as 20 HPLC systems (with photodiode array and refractive index detector), including UPLC and LCMS systems running with data acquisition software from Totalchrom™ and Empower. The laboratory contains automated and manual dissolution apparatus 1 and 2, and GC with both direct and head space analysis.

CorePharma is dedicated to effectively growing our business through sound product selection and collaborative partnerships. In addition to our own internal product development, we welcome collaboration with companies that have a culture of quality, value a supportive environment, and whose goals align with those of CorePharma. Our Business Development team recognizes the importance of partnerships with businesses in all phases of development, ranging from exclusive API arrangements and product development agreements to marketing licenses.

In 2005, RoundTable Healthcare Partners LLP, a leading global private equity firm, acquired a majority share of CorePharma.
