Optimisation of complex formulation


Our technical team has considerable experience in the optimisation of complex formulations in order to ensure that the critical process parameters are properly understood and controlled, and that the processes are cost-effective and robust at multiple scales for  seamless transfer to production.

Process development and scale-up


Our pilot plant ensures the delivery of cGMP and non cGMP prototypes. We offer process development and optimisation, scale-up, trouble shooting resolution, all being supported by a Quality by Design approach.

  • Small-scale production
  • Small API needs
  • High-quality prototyping
  • Rapid screening of formulation options
  • Early characterisation of powders
  • Anticipation of potential up-scaling issues
  • Closer to industrial settings (e.g. tooling)
  • Quality by Design support
  • cGMP production at all development scales
