LUXEMBOURG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eurofins CDMO Alphora Inc. announces receipt in April 2022 of its Health Canada Standard Processing License issued within the Cannabis Act and Cannabis Regulations for its Oakville, Ontario Operations. This is complementary to the Institutional Research License obtained through Health Canada in June 2021 for its Mississauga development site.
Eurofins CDMO Alphora Inc. entered a licensing agreement with Kare Chemical Technologies Inc. in August 2021 for use of Kare’s innovative technology to synthetically produce high quality phytocannabinoids. Eurofins CDMO Alphora Inc. has since developed scalable processes for several naturally occurring phytocannabinoids including CBD, CBDv, THC, THCv, and is preparing processes for others such as CBN, CBDA.
Eurofins CDMO Alphora Inc. was founded in 2003 and has a well-established history developing scalable API processes for clinical and commercial requirements for the biotech and pharmaceutical industry, and has been successfully inspected by both the FDA and Health Canada. This experience differentiates the company by applying its rigorous API development expertise to produce well-characterized, synthetic phytocannabinoids and reference standards of high purity, which are not readily produced through traditional extraction involving cannabis plants or seeds.
