Axplora omega 3 cGMP purification plant in Mourenx

Purification of a complex API using a batch chromatography process

Axplora is a pioneer and market leader in preparative chromatography with more than 30’ years track record in chromatography equipment design and commercial manufacturing. We produce 1000’s tons API and more than 3000 batches with industrial chromatography.

A major pharmaceutical company tasked the Axplora Pompey site to develop an improved chromatography process for a high-value API with 2 key factors to consider: complex API production and inefficiency of crystallization.


  • Development of a robust and automated process
  • Optimize the API purification with 2 chromatography steps
  • High purity and high yield
