This article looks at the relationship between a CDMO quality organization and the client.

Working with a contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) is a great way for smaller or diversified biotech companies, and even Big Pharma, to expand operations or modalities to reach the patients more efficiently. Outsourcing process development and manufacturing requires a lesser upfront investment with faster timelines while allowing teams at advanced therapy developers to focus on innovation. However, this relationship can deeply impact the quality and efficacy of a product. This article explores the balancing act of ensuring regulatory compliance via internal procedures at a CDMO and what to consider when starting
this relationship.
