(PresseBox) ( Bubendorf/Basel and Yokohama, Japan, )
Bachem (SIX: BANB) and Jitsubo CO., LTD. announce today that they signed an exclusive Licensing Agreement for Jitsubo’s Molecular Hiving™ technology. Under the License agreement, Jitsubo will develop selected manufacturing processes using their Molecular Hiving™ technology and transfer these processes to Bachem. Bachem will further optimize, scale up and produce for commercial applications. In return, Jitsubo will receive development fees and royalties.

Using this technology, Bachem expects reduced manufacturing costs, improved sustainability, greener chemistry, efficient scale up, and enhanced in-process controls. The two companies have been establishing a close collaboration and several projects for active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) as well as cosmetic peptides, have already been initiated and successfully realized using Jitsubo’s technology at Bachem.

Dr. Günther Loidl, Chief Technology Officer of Bachem Holding AG, comments: “We are convinced that Jitsubo’s Molecular Hiving™ technology offers substantial advantages regarding efficiency, and towards greener manufacturing. It complements Bachem’s current extensive technology base and is a great fit for us because Bachem is already offering unique capabilities in the area of solid phase, hybrid, and solution phase peptide chemistry. We are excited to be the only contract manufacturing organization to offer this innovative technology to our customers.”
