Pharmaceutical Commissioning and Qualification Case Studies

We Work with Some of the World’s Biggest Players — and the Next Big Names Entering the Game

ICQ has played an important role in the commissioning and qualification of manufacturing plants in the major life sciences hubs in the United States, including some of the world’s largest biomanufacturing facilities.

We also partner with early-to-market start-ups and emerging biopharma companies to help engineering and quality teams proactively anticipate and solve complex commissioning, qualification, and validation challenges.
