Bright Path Labs uses a revolutionary and patented AI-powered continuous-flow manufacturing technology to make and scale molecules faster, more efficiently, and less expensively than traditional batch techniques.
Working in partnership with the FDA Emerging Technology Team to deploy advanced continuous manufacturing technologies, Bright Path Labs'
AI-powered continuous flow technology significantly improves quality control, reduces waste, facilitates manufacturing scale-up, and improves process economics and cost control, saving customers time and money, while reducing supply chain disruption.
Bright Path Labs also works with the EPA and industry leaders in AI and ML technologies to ensure our facilities have the highest regulatory compliance, lowest environmental impact, and smallest manufacturing footprint on the planet.
Bright Path Labs is collaborating with philanthropic groups, small businesses and several pharmaceutical and generic medicine companies to translate outdated batch production processes into Bright Path Labs' patented spinning in tube technology (STT®) continuous flow platform. These projects include both novel and already marketed drugs.
Bright Path Labs maintains a development facility in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with larger manufacturing capabilities in North Carolina to commercialize the STT® flow reactor process. Our streamlined process allows drugs to get through the FDA approval process and onto the market faster, which is crucial not only for making sure patients have the medicines they need but also to maintain the international competitiveness of the U.S. pharmaceutical industry.
Bright Path Labs is committed to bringing our unique and patented continuous flow reactor technology to the pharmaceutical industry to enhance domestic production of active pharmaceutical ingredients, deliver high-quality and affordable medicine for all, increase access to rare/orphan disease treatments, and empower precision medicine.
We make medicines for those where others can’t or won’t – affordably, safely, securely, and in an environmentally responsible manner.
Bright Path Labs leadership has significant scientific and technical expertise in
the areas of chemical reaction design, green chemistry, and process evaluation. This includes the successful development of 32 chemistry/API methods with
Bright Path Labs STT® technology spanning commodity and specialty organic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, electronic applications, and nanotechnology.
