Formulation and Clinical Manufacturing

Cost-effective manufacturing and formulation support for substances – small molecules to proteins, peptides and larger biological agents – in all therapeutic areas.

Choosing the right delivery system and formulation can make the difference between clinical success and failure during the early developmental stages of a new drug product.

Our solutions

Our global Center of Excellence for Formulation and Clinical Manufacturing provides enhanced formulation research and development services for phase I, phase II and phase III trials.

Operating out of MHRA- and FDA-inspected facilities, we support drug manufacturers in all stages of clinical development: pre-formulation work, formulation, dosage form design and optimization. Our formulation expertise optimizes drug exposure and delivery to the required site of action during the development stage and, if required, can support fast-track, first-in-human (FIH) formulations.

Our experts are able to manufacture and pack products for both blinded and randomized clinical trial. We follow a just-in-time (JIT) shipping model when sending products to clinics globally and offer QP release services. We also provide ICH stability testing for products during clinical studies, managing products’ shelf life and reducing the impact on clinical supplies.
