As a wholly owned subsidiary of Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, a clinical-stage biotech company with a management team experienced in the commercialization of therapeutic proteins, we know what it takes to navigate our clients’ biologic from concept to commercialization. This allows us to provide our clients with unique insights to manage the challenges of drug development and commercialization while mitigating risk, reducing costs and accelerating time to market.

At Avid, we strive to be the partner of choice by providing a more comprehensive approach to contract services and meeting the market demand.

We pride ourselves on being able to apply our knowledge and experience to benefit our clients and their projects throughout the process. our manufacturing expertise spans from clinical to commercial production, including commercial API production since 2005.

Our facility currently has 2,400 L of total capacity, including 100-L, 300-L, and two 1,000-L bioreactors, with the potential for expansion of an additional 6,000 L, taking advantage of disposable technology. our established partnerships further advance our expertise and scale-up capacity.

Since 2002, our successful inspection track record continues to grow, ranging from audits by the U.S. FDA and the State of California, as well as other regulatory agencies and clients. Project management acts on behalf of the client and drives the process internally and externally, from start to finish, ensuring timelines are met and product is delivered on time. our project management team has extensive experience collaborating and partnering with our clients and contributing to their success.
