Our Story

Essential Medicines Solutions

Why Isn’t There Enough Medicine?

This question is what led Phlow™ to become a trailblazing, public benefit corporation committed to ending shortages of essential medicines in our country. We started by understanding the challenges with the current essential medicines supply chain, including development, manufacturing, pricing, reimbursement and distribution. And now we are re-building critical infrastructure here at home while actively accelerating the advanced manufacturing of affordable, high-quality essential medicines at risk of shortage – including those for COVID-19 pandemic response.

Phlow™ creates active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and finished pharmaceutical products that are essential to the Nation’s health using state-of-the-art flow technology and other advanced manufacturing processes.

With the support of an industry-leading team, industry-leading partners, and established relationships at the policy, regulatory, and federal levels Phlow™ uses continuous R&D to improve the quality and yield and reduce the cost of pharmaceutical ingredients so that one day, we can end the shortage of essential medicines – for good.
