Designing and industrializing formulations

The Development department is run by a multidisciplinary team who are highly experienced in formulation technology, both at the laboratory level and on an industrial scale.
Our technicians and engineers carry out all or part of the process, depending on the clients’ wishes:

  • Feasibility study from specifications
  • Optimization study:
    • Finalization of formulas after a feasibility study.
    • Adjustment of formulas to meet regulatory requirements.
    • Stability and performance optimization for existing formulas.
  • Pilot study to assess the industrial feasibility of defined formulas as well as the main parameters before first manufacturing.
  • Manufacturing of GLP, bio and marketing samples.
  • Industrialization.
