Formulation and Drug Product Development

Comprehensive support for your biopharmaceutical’s formulation and product development.

Finishing Your Development Journey with Finesse

The uniqueness of each biologic drug product often demands a specially tailored formula, as there are numerous variables that can impact stability, potency, and delivery. Our experienced team of formulation development experts excel at fine-tuning the composition of an array of biopharmaceuticals, encompassing therapeutic proteins, enzymes, monoclonal antibodies, and bispecific antibodies.

As you work with us, we will walk you through pre-formulation studies to examine the biophysical properties of your molecule, its thermal stability and aggregate formation in response to formulation and storage conditions. During drug product development, we will evaluate your molecule under a range of buffer conditions, temperatures, shear force, pH levels, salt concentrations, as well as excipients that help stabilize your molecule or aid in manufacturing or drug delivery. These insights will allow us to select the most optimal, robust drug product formulation for the molecule’s intended therapeutic use, and maintain its stability, conformation and efficacy during production, shipping, and storage for the desired shelf life.
