Company Overview

Founded in 2005, COREALIS Pharma Inc is a private company that partners with the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries for the formulation development and clinical supplies manufacturing of solid oral dosage forms (tablets, capsules, and granules) on a contractual basis.

Complete in-house services from active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) characterization to clinical supplies delivered on time, every time, by an experienced team of professionals applying phase appropriate science and technology to each project.

COREALIS Pharma recognizes the uniqueness of each API, of each therapeutic application, the regulatory requirements of each country, and of each client. Thus, personalized, efficient, and supported service is the priority. Frequent communication, interactions, and follow-ups with clients are of the utmost importance. COREALIS Pharma offers clients the possibility to access, in real-time, the information, data, and documents relating to their projects. Maintaining an appropriate level of contact with clients and providing them with a maximum amount of information to allow them to make informed decisions as the projects are progressing is essential to ensure the client’s success.

COREALIS Pharma’s experts have developed and manufactured a large variety of drug products where numerous formulation strategies and processes have been utilized. Their expertise is made available to clients for the development and manufacturing of the following types of drug products:

  • Phase appropriate drug products for early stage clinical studies (API-in-a-bottle, API-in-a-capsule, fit-for-purpose formulations);
  • Immediate release;
  • Delayed and Sustained Released;
  • Gastric protection;
  • Sublingual;
  • Effervescent;
  • Combination of 2 to 3 APIs (505(b)(2));
  • Reformulation of drug products for new therapeutic applications, new dosage forms or different drug loading (505(b)(2));
  • Anti-drug abuse of controlled substances.

Our state-of-the-art laboratories and manufacturing facilities, located in the beautiful Biotech Scientific Park situated in Laval (Québec, Canada), allow our experts to successfully complete the most complex formulation development and clinical supply manufacturing mandates.

COREALIS Pharma’s cGMP facility and processes are in full compliance with the ICH guidelines as well as country specific (US, Europe, and Canada) regulatory requirements for clinical studies to be held under their jurisdiction. COREALIS Pharma is continuously improving its quality systems as they are put under scrutiny on a regular basis by clients’ auditors and Qualified Quality Persons (QP) for clinical studies to be held in various European countries. COREALIS Pharma underwent a successful general audit by a QP auditor. This translates into a substantial time and cost savings, because re-auditing COREALIS Pharma for each manufacturing campaign of clinical supplies for European studies is not required.

Furthermore, COREALIS Pharma has been granted its establishment license from Health Canada for the manufacturing, packaging and testing of commercial pharmaceutical oral solid dosage forms.

COREALIS Pharma’s goal is to provide its clients full satisfaction by providing high quality services in delivering compliant phase appropriate drug products on time, every time.
