Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs)

Our Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient portfolio consists of active ingredients, intermediates and specialty chemicals. An API is the pharmacologically active part of a finished medicinal product whereas intermediates and specialty chemicals are in general materials which are used in chemical synthesis.

All the major therapeutic classes are covered by Selectchemie’s range of products. We are experienced in handling highly specific substances like hormones, antibiotics, controlled substances (narcotics) and dangerous goods. We ensure quality and performance by evaluating and auditing our suppliers on a regular base and continuously assessing each delivery.

More and more of our APIs are supported by either a Certificate of suitability to the monographs of the European Pharmacopoeia (CEP), a Drug Master File (DMF) or other appropriate documents.

Selectchemie also offers a number of highly interesting intermediates and specialty chemicals from carefully selected manufacturers. We are committed to Responsible Care and handle dangerous goods in line with the highest packaging, storage and transportation guidelines.

We have become a primary contact and advisor for a large number of customers when searching for bulk raw materials in an early phase of development. At the same time, a growing number of renowned raw material manufacturers rely on our access to a broad customer base in various markets.
