Global manufacturers trust Element’s expert scientists to provide industry-specific insight and thorough chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) testing and lab services to support the development, clinical-scale manufacturing, regulatory submissions, post-approval and life cycle management of small and large molecule drug products.

Chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) is a fundamental part of both small and large molecule product regulatory filings, as CMC maintains the connection in quality between the drug product used in clinical studies and the marketed drug. A robust CMC regulatory strategy needs to be applied throughout the entire product lifecycle, from drug candidate selection through post-approval and beyond.

Extensive regulatory requirements and filing pathways expertise

  • 351(a) Biologics license application (BLA) for innovator biologics
  • 351(k) Pathway for biosimilars and interchangeable biologics
  • NDA (New drug application)
  • 505(b)(1) Investigational new drug (IND) application
  • 505 (b)(2) New chemical entity (NCE) pathway
  • 505(j) Abbreviated new drug product (ANDA) for generic drugs
  • OTC (Monograph-based or IND-based)
  • INAD (Investigational new animal drug)
  • NADA (New animal drug application)
  • ANANDA (Abbreviated new animal drug pathway for generic new animal drugs)
  • CNADA (Conditional approval for new animal drugs)
