As an industry leader in pharmaceutical testing, Element provides a comprehensive range of CMC product development services to ensure you bring safe, quality products to market that also meet the stringent industry requirements.

Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls (CMC) activities form a crucial part of any clinical trial. Drugs can be denied marketing approval if the quality of the product and the manufacturing process fail to satisfy regulatory requirements. Ensuring that the trial is designed and developed to as near perfection as possible allows accelerating the drug development process.

Element has provided full CMC development for several NDA 505-b applications as well as generic drug products (ANDAs), and our work has led directly to the successful regulatory approval and commercialization of parenteral dosage forms, ophthalmics, and topicals.
