Johnson Matthey Acquires Pharmorphix

Pharmorphix is an established provider of solid form services, including polymorph studies, salt selection, co-crystallization, chiral separations and process scale up that are critical to successful drug discovery and development. This expertise also has valuable applications for process control, and can enable innovators or generics customers to find new forms for novel or existing pharmaceuticals.

“Pharmorphix serves an important niche area that complements our custom pharma solutions, API life cycle management offerings and existing US-based solid state science capabilities,” said John Fowler, Division Director at Johnson Matthey Fine Chemicals. “The acquisition adds further differentiating technologies to our advanced catalysis and complex chemistry capabilities, building on the expertise that our customers rely on to enable successful drug development and commercialisation.”

The Pharmorphix facilities and staff are located at the Cambridge Science Park, UK, where they will be fully integrated into Johnson Matthey’s expanding Cambridge presence.
