To facilitate effective commercial strategies, CEPTON provides support in the coordination of medical marketing and the formulation of market access strategy.

CEPTON has developed a robust ‘launch readiness’ methodology that helps clients optimise the preparation of their key product launches. Our methodology has been utilised extensively in numerous therapeutic areas including: oncology, psychiatry, diabetes, and rare or autoimmune diseases. Our subject matter expertise enables us to help develop launch strategies suited to your target market and product.


Our expertise also covers the drastically different, more consumer-orientated OTC markets.

We have developed and tested specific methodologies to enhance commercial performance in an OTC environment, by optimising the marketing mix and commercial policies to reflect the point of sale and consumer.
As these markets are extremely fragmented and brand-driven, we can also help our clients identify the best acquisition targets to complement their product lines in specific categories.

Biosimilars and generics.

The varied dynamics of generics and biosimilars provide opportunities to firms that can adapt. Patent expiration results in strong market disruption, with firms needing to adapt their approach to protect their position in the market.

CEPTON advises clients on strategies to anticipate these disruptions and potential consequences on their organisation. Biosimilars, in particular, represent an array of new market opportunities, particularly in Europe where significantly more biosimilars are already on the market compared to the US.


CEPTON also has significant experience advising biotech companies.

We help them define their value proposition and commercial model and ensure their business plans are realistic and attractive to investors. We highlight clear development priorities to efficiently utilise limited resources.
