Biotech company

Founded in December 2013, Adjuvatis is specialized in the development, manufacturing and formulation of a safe-by-design delivery system, called i-Particles®.

Based on fully metabolizable ans biocompatible particles, this technology was initially developed by a joint research unit involving both the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and bioMérieux company, a global leader in in vitro diagnostics. Ten years of development and international evaluation raised interests and promising prospects in many healthcare fields and led to the creation of Adjuvatis.

From R&D to production, Adjuvatis is operating services for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and antigens formulation in the fields of vaccines, antibody generation and drug delivery (for cosmetics, dermatology, oncology and more). To fulfill the formulation development, Adjuvatis provides analytical services for customers’ formulations and colloidal technologies. Backed by a robust and quality-oriented development process, our company also proposes a wide variety of i-Particles®-based products.

Our Mission

Providing high quality formulations to improve pharmaceuticals

Built around biosafety concern and safe-by-design concept, Adjuvatis is committed in promoting innovative and safe solutions to improve customer’s pharmaceuticals. Adjuvatis’ i-Particles® provide improvements about healthcare, cost-effectiveness and quality aspects related to three main fields.



Increase immunogenicity, insure biosafety.

i-Particles® support the development of more efficient and safer vaccines and stands as a new class adjuvant.



Improve cost-effectiveness, quality and productivity.

Our particles act both as a carrier and an amplifier reducing the quantity of costly and unstable antigens while allowing antibodies production with high affinity.



Develop patient-friendly formulation, improve efficacy.

i-Particles® insure hydrophobic molecules solubilization, protection and sustained delivery. Our technology aims to overstep pharmaceutical development barriers, proposes new route of administration and increases product life cycle.
