Facilities

The Kymos Group is an European CRO made up of three sites with 14 laboratory departments, 170 highly trained experts and 5,000 m2 worth of facilities and top-of-the-line instruments. Our GMP/GLP-certified bioanalytical and CMC services are carried out by the following laboratory teams:

  • Analytical Development and Validation
  • Bioanalysis of Small Molecules (aka Mass Spec and Permeation)
  • Bioanalysis of Large Molecules (aka Immunology)
  • Bioanalysis of Oligonucleotides
  • Quality Control of Small Molecules
  • Quality Control of Large Molecules (aka Biopharmaceutical testing)
  • Elemental Analysis
  • Microbiology
  • Stabilities
  • Quality Assurance

In addition to our main laboratories, we are equipped with adjacent facilities for weighting, sample preparation and processing; a combined 100m3 of SCADA-monitored sample storage chambers under all ICH climatic conditions including standard and IVb zones, back-up room, refrigerated conditions, -20ºC freezers and -80ºC ultra-freezers; a microbiology cleanroom for aseptic testing and sample preparation; a containment room for work under O.E.L. Category 4 with high-potency drugs such as hormones, antibiotics or cytotoxins; a radioactivity laboratory to work with Iodine-125; purified water and technical-gas plants; emergency power generators; a fireproof data center for communication and software servers, data storage and back-up systems; as well as offices, meeting rooms, cafeteria and general facilities.
