Phyton Biotech is a leading global supplier of high quality Paclitaxel and Docetaxel API. We derive our commercial APIs using our own Plant Cell Fermentation Technology (PCF®), eliminating the need for yew tree plantation derived 10-deaceytlbaccatin (10-DAB) as starting material.
Virtually all other suppliers of Paclitaxel and Docetaxel rely on yew tree plantations located in Europe and Asia, meaning that their ability to supply 10-DAB is affected by harvesting, environmental, demand, and geo-political factors. Phyton is uniquely positioned to offer superior reliability to our customers because we can overcome many of the obstacles other suppliers cannot.
Phyton is the largest single supplier of high quality Paclitaxel API in the world. We have the capacity to supply nearly 500 kg annually from our Vancouver GMP facility. Our Paclitaxel API meets USP/EP compendia and is derived using our unique Plant Cell Fermentation technology (PCF®), not the standard yew tree plantation derived 10-DAB which is vulnerable to harvesting and supply issues. Phyton is the only Paclitaxel supplier in the world that controls the entire upstream and downstream production process internally under strict GMP conditions.
