Pharmaceutical Pre-Formulation and Formulation Development

Formulation development studies determine the optimal dosage form, composition and manufacturing route is a fundamental part of pharmaceutical product development. Getting pharmaceutical formulation development right helps to optimise drug delivery performance and product stability. Complex dosage forms, in particular, inhaled and nasal products can present unique challenges for controlling the performance of the drug product and impact bioavailability. Solid, semi-solid and liquid formulations are developed using pre-formulation data to design prototype formulations and processes. The formulation development centre also has its own validated stability chambers to conduct lab stability tests to support selection of a suitable formulation and manufacturing process
