R&D Centre at Rabale

Our Research and Development is an expression of our commitment towards Innovation and Excellence

Indoco Remedies Limited has set up a state-of-the-art standalone R&D Centre at Rabale, near New Mumbai. The facility is in the forefront of Indoco’s efforts for a successful entry into the advanced regulated markets of US and Europe.

The R&D Centre and the Kilo-Lab facility are expected to boost the API synthesis and development efforts which are primarily directed to cater the requirements of regulated markets. The R&D Centre has strengthened and enabled the Company to successfully complete CTD dossiers for the regulated markets.

Occupying an area of 1,00,000 sq. ft., the R&D Centre has three divisions viz. Formulations, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients & Intermediates and Regulatory & IPR Cell. The Centre is backed by a full spectrum of library and information management service. The facility has already received approval from the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India.

The facilities at the Centre include Synthetic Chemistry Labs, F&D, AMD, Regulatory and IPR Cell. The API section has capabilities to synthesize APIs, work on process improvement as well as development of non-infringing processes for APIs and intermediates. The Formulation section is engaged in development of dosage forms – solid & liquid orals, creams & ointments, ophthalmic preparations, small volume parenterals and dental products. It is also engaged in research in the area of modified release products like sustained release and controlled release tablets. The Regulatory and IPR Cell is equipped with online patent search tools and syndicated databases with access to various libraries and would be engaged in preparing regulated market ANDAs and dossiers in CTD format.
