LNPs and Liposomes

API encapsulation

Artificially constructed from the same organic phospholipids that make up cells and biomembranes, nanoparticle carriers such as lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) and liposomes are a drug delivery alternative for both hydrophilic and hydrophobic drug substances. Fujifilm’s LNP/liposome contract services support the commercialization of nanoparticle-based pharmaceuticals, leveraging expertise in precision chemistry and process technology that the company has cultivated through years of experience in photographic film manufacturing.

Fujifilm’s capabilities

Our goal is to accelerate your therapeutic development leveraging our technology and expertise in nanoparticle carriers.

Under a partnership with Precision NanoSystems Inc., Fujifilm has installed the NanoAssemblr™ platform, an LNP/liposome manufacturing system employed worldwide in academia and industry. Our CDMO services can quickly and seamlessly scale up your LNP formulations developed with the NanoAssemblr™ platform. Fujifilm can also offer its proprietary liposome manufacturing technology using a dispersion method, which allows fine control of liposome particle size.

Fujifilm has performed in-house formulation design, evaluation, scale-up and GMP manufacturing for its own liposome-based investigational drugs. Our CDMO services will be delivered to you by a team of engineers with knowledge and operational experience in liposome-based pharmaceuticals.

Our state-of-the-art GMP manufacturing facility offers one-stop solutions from upstream to downstream processes, and can handle a wide range of APIs, such as nucleic acids and highly potent compounds.

Our services

Our services are tailored to your project’s development phase, ranging from small-scale formulation development at our research laboratory, to commercial-scale manufacturing at our GMP facility.
