At our six Technical Centres, our dedicated team of more than 30 pharmaceutical experts delivers unrivalled excellence in formulation characterisation. We’ll work with you to meet your technical requirements, as you develop your capabilities and product pipeline.

Our approach is uniquely focused by application, where we have expertise in oral solid dosage forms, liquid suspensions, topicals and pulmonary drug delivery.

The added value offered through the specialist skills of our people includes in-depth knowledge of specific challenges such as controlled release and bioavailability enhancement, alongside reverse engineering to de-cipher formulations and feasibility studies to help choose the best process.
