Welcome to PharmBioTec gGmbH –
a Contract research specialized, non-profit company.

PharmBioTec gGmbH is a non-profit company specialized in pharmaceutical contract research. High quality services are offered in the preclinical development phase. These include the development of new formulations, analytical services and in vitro testing of potential APIs to assess safety and efficacy. 

PharmBioTec gGmbH has the goal to replace animal testing in drug development. Our activities aim at developing new cell-based and non-cell-based systems together with partners from industry and research institutes. These new methods enable targeted and human-relevant pharmaceutical formulation development.

We support other non-profit institutions such as Saarpfalz-Werkstatt für angepasste Arbeit gGmbH to share our success in the best possible way for the common good. 

As a research partner, we are the right choice when it comes to innovative developments for the treatment of skin, lung and intestinal diseases. We can look back on numerous national and international projects, the success of which can be seen in the form of publicly accessible publications.

Numerous industrial partners have found their way to us to conduct proof of concept studies. Such studies are carried out on behalf of or as part of a joint research project and are usually aimed at new methods or product developments. 

We let our experience flow directly into the training of young scientists. We offer the possibility to do internships and bachelor & master theses in our company. In teaching, we constantly strive for cooperation with universities to let students participate in our findings.
