The Biopharma Group
The Biopharma Group is made up of Biopharma Process Systems (BPS), Biopharma Technologies Ltd (BTL) and Biopharma Technologies France (BTF). We also have a division in the US (BTLLC) that works in close association with our product partners SP Scientific
Equipment and Product Sales and Service Division: BPS
Established in 1989, BPS is a leading supplier of equipment to the pharmaceutical, biotech and process industries in the UK, Ireland and France, with a specialisation in freeze drying, solvent removal (Genevac), high pressure homogenisation (Avestin) and preparative separation solutions (Sepiatec GmbH) technologies and the related equipment.
Our aim is to provide you with equipment and services that best meet your process requirements and to remain on-hand for advice and assistance you might need thereafter. The key to our success is years of experience in the processing industries and an in-depth knowledge of the equipment we supply. We have an experienced independent consultancy department which, when combined with strong links to our suppliers and our in house service and maintenance department, enables us to support you throughout the life of your equipment.
In partnership with our suppliers:
- SP Scientific (Genevac, Virtis, FTS, Hull)
- Sepiatec GmbH
- K Control Corp.
- Edwards Pumps
Independent Consultancy Division: BTL – consultancy, analysis, training and R&D
The Biopharma Technology division was established in 1997 to provide independent contract research, analysis, process reviews, product and cycle development services, training and analytical instrumentation to the global biopharmaceutical and related industries. We have decades of experience in the application of all aspects of freeze drying technology and have successfully processed more than 1000 substances on behalf of clients.
Together with our knowledge of pilot-scale and industrial freeze-dryers we offer a uniquely comprehensive service and training courses (standard or bespoke) covering all aspects of freeze-drying from pre-formulation through to full-scale production and dried product analysis.
We aim to meet the precise needs of our customers' projects, and will agree a work programme and a budget that is appropriate to the size and stage of your project. We are happy to run a single cycle or individual analysis for our clients, or agree a complete formulation development programme with you. Our philosophy is to augment your in-house expertise and work with you to make your project a success.
BTL is committed to providing a world-class service to our customers. We seek to ensure all our practices are controlled, safe and reliable for staff, customers and the products we handle. Therefore we have adopted a Quality Management System that ensures our laboratory, documentation and health and safety practices are of the highest standard. The Quality Management System ensures compliance with ISO 9001.
Biopharma in France combines elements from equipment sales and service in addition to having access to the expertise of the consultancy division, giving our French-speaking client base a one-stop option, while Biopharma in the USA is focused on freeze drying, analytical equipment and analytical services.
