Technological Capabilities

Bachem is an independent, technology-based company, specialized in the process development and the manufacturing of peptides and complex organic molecules as active pharmaceutical ingredients as well as innovative biochemicals for research purposes. The experience and know-how in the development of optimal manufacturing processes is regarded as a basic requirement to achieve an outstanding product quality in high yield.

New discoveries in the field of life science research and Bachem´s development as a technology-oriented company are intrinsically linked. Since innovation plays an integral role in securing Bachem´s future, the company strives to continuously expand its know-how in chemistries and technologies through internal research projects as well as by collaboration with external research institutions.

Bachem is now offering peptide synthesis using Jitsubo’s Molecular Hiving™ technology, as both have signed an exclusive Licensing Agreement. The synthesis of peptides by Molecular Hiving™ technology resembles solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS), but with all process steps entirely in solution. This technology is most advantageous for shorter peptides (up to 10-15 amino acids) which are required in larger quantities (≥ 5-10 kg batch size). The process is “CMR free”, largely produces aqueous waste and is a cost efficient due to lower equivalents of Fmoc-amino acid derivatives and coupling reagents compared to SPPS.
