Fermentation & Biotechnology
Long Term Expertise
Sanofi Biotechnology expertise is based on a large volume fermentation technology used to produce complex APIs in Europe in a backward integrated manner, i.e. without intermediates from various origins. Sanofi inherited its know-how in fermentation from its roots in Roussel Uclaf, Rhône-Poulenc, Gruppo Lepetit and Sanofi.
Production of vitamin B12 started in the 1960’s with Roussel Uclaf and has expanded with Rhône-Poulenc. This strong industrial background makes CEPiA today one of the world’s leading suppliers and the only Western producer of vitamin B12.
CEPiA industrial footprint is also characterized by an integrated production of antituberculosis and antibiotics which started 40 years ago with Gruppo Lepetit.
Specific biotechnology projects are also developed. Thanks to in-house expertise and capacity in bio-manufacturing, high tech APIs are produced through recombinant technologies, cell culture, protein engineering…
