Product & process development services
Understanding the thermal behaviour of your product and identification of the key freeze drying parameters is vital for successful processing. To help you develop your product and process as efficiently as possible we operate a dedicated on-site freeze drying laboratory.
We have offered consultancy services since 1997 and in that time have worked on over 1000 products. We have processed products from small drug molecules to large complex biomolecules, foods, tissues, cells, living organisms and archaeological artefacts. We have also collaborated on a number of research projects including freeze drying of red blood cells, encapsulation of probiotics, spray drying, Headspace Moisture Analysis and impedance analysis.
This varied experience enables us to understand the challenges faced in product and process development. We know which excipients will provide favourable thermal and mechanical characteristics suitable to each individual formulation and are able to advise process parameters for robust and efficient freeze drying.
Our R&D services support you throughout your project.
- Product characterisation and formulation development
- Cycle development, scale-up and optimisation
- Stability studies and moisture analysis
- Standalone cleanroom laboratory for handling cytotoxic materials
