- Our Mission -

To augment our customer in-house experience and work together to make each project a success.

About Us

Biopharma Group presents expertise in the fields of freeze drying products & technologies, R&D consultancy, analysis, process development, training courses, solvent removal, high pressure homogenisation, powder fillers and preparative chromatography products.

We are proud not to be a catalogue company. Our aim is to provide you with equipment that best meets your process requirements and to remain on-hand for whatever advice and assistance you might need. The key to our success is our years of experience in the processing industries and our in-depth knowledge of the equipment we supply. We have an experienced service department and strong links with our suppliers to enable us to support you throughout the life of your equipment, and our on-site freeze drying laboratory offers a range of services in product and process development.
