Analytical Method Development and Validation

Identification, Development, Monitoring and Quality Control Testing of your Product

Our scientists recognise that successful development programmes begin with a thorough understanding of the physico-chemical characteristics of the API, and any potential stability or excipient incompatibility challenges.


Our Leadership team has extensive collective experience in steering products from pre-clinical to commercial manufacture.


Our approach is scientific, collaborative and open, ensuring an open dialogue and transparency that fits your project.


We are a leading CDMO recognised for numerous awards including a King's Award For Enterprise.


We adapt to your project needs, and pledge to never relegating it to the bottom of the list.

Analytical Research and Development

Using a range of techniques including, DSC / TGA, XRPD, Microscopy, FTIR, Particle sizing. etc. we gain fundamental understanding and insight into the behaviours and of your API and support the development activities required to support First in Human studies and product development.

Analytical and QC Services​

Once your product enters clinical development our dedicated team of analytical experts work with you and our cross functional teams to transfer, development, and phase appropriate validation of your analytical methods and performance of QC and release testing including:

    • Assay, Content uniformity and related substances by HPLC
    • Performance testing including Dissolution and Disintegration
    • Moisture and residual solvents
    • IC Stability testing
    • Cleaning verification
    • DoE studies to investigating critical process parameters

Stability Testing (ASAPprime®)

Early data read outs on the stability of both the API and early formulations can be used to provide early indications on potential stability issues, vital information that can save time and money in the development pathway.

ASAPprime® has been incorporated into our development programme as a critical, early stage analytical tool for identifying potential stability issues
