In this video, get a behind-the-scenes look at BASF’s ibuprofen production process and the dedicated team ensuring that customers can count on consistency in every batch and a reliable supply.

Unlike the facilities of other ibuprofen suppliers, Bishop has a completely closed system requiring very little human intervention. While other ibuprofen manufacturers’ processes require six or seven steps, BASF’s process is completed in only four. The automated production process is completely controlled at the plant, ensuring consistency in every batch.

The facility, which uses a unique and sustainable process to produce ibuprofen for customers worldwide, has undergone a series of major upgrades, with substantial improvements to both process and equipment. Recent triple-digit million-dollar investments to the site include new analytical instrumentation in the quality laboratory, upgrades to process equipment, and digitalization tools.

Innovation With Ibuprofen DC 85 – For Direct Compression

Today, BASF produces several ibuprofen grades including the API for the process-accelerating Ibuprofen DC 85 product, which has been specifically designed for direct compression into tablets. 

With Ibuprofen DC 85, BASF solved two of the most common industry challenges in direct compression of ibuprofen: persistent sticking to the machinery and the need for high concentration of drug substances. The result is a reliable, fault-free tableting production with higher output rates. Furthermore, expensive wet granulation and compaction processing steps are not needed, which reduces your production costs.
