Tips to Pick the Right Contract Manufacturing Organization

By Pharma Tech Outlook | Monday, February 15, 2021

Technological capabilities, proximity to specialized technology, consistency, transparency of resources, and the CMO's geographical position are main differentiators according to participants of one outsourcing study.

FREMONT, CA: Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs), also known as Contract Development and Manufacturing Organizations (CDMOs), are contract-based entities delivering drug development and drug manufacturing services in the pharmaceutical industry. These organizations encourage pharmaceutical firms to outsource some parts of their operation, freeing up precious time to concentrate on drug research and drug marketing.

The CMO market is on the ascent, and projections are projected to hit 205.104 billion dollars this year. This phenomenal growth can be due to increasing medical costs and suppliers' need to reduce their contact base while retaining a global presence and access to technology.

So, how does one choose the right CMO? Outsourcing is crucial for pharmaceutical and biologics manufacturers. Picking the right partner is a vital part of growth. CMOs offer pharmaceutical and biologic manufacturers one of the most critical commodities in today's fast-paced world: time. Pharmaceutical and biologic producers will free up the internal capital needed to prioritize internal capability and increase process quality by outsourcing manufacturing processes.

Vital Requirements for Manufacturers

Cost-saving is not (and should not be) the key driver for pharmaceutical and biologic producers to select the best outsourcing agency. Technological capabilities, proximity to specialized technology, consistency, transparency of resources, and the CMO's geographical position are main differentiators according to participants of one outsourcing study.

Getting the Partnership Right

However, those doing the outsourcing should also bear in mind that no relationship is one-way; expectations need to be realistic. Both sides must be mindful of the regulatory obligations attached to the goods in question before hiring the CMO. Compliance with the CMO must be supervised by the provider while also aiding in executing risk management action plans. Overall openness, standards management, and a consistent view of the communication process plan remain a core component of the blooming partnership.
