Element’s formulation scientists provide pharmaceutical pre-formulation and formulation development services that help enhance delivery performance and stability of your parenteral, ophthalmic, and topical drug products.  

All pharmaceutical products need to be formulated to specific dosage forms for drugs to be effectively delivered to patients. Oral tablets, solutions, topical ointments, gels, and other dosage forms require different manufacturing technologies and present unique technical challenges to formulation scientists.

Our formulation development services are primarily focused on parenteral products (both small and large molecules), and also include ophthalmic and topical drug products. We provide:

  • Solubility and pH profile studies
  • Drug/excipient compatibility studies
  • Drug/filter/packaging component compatibility studies
  • Formulation development utilizing state-of-the-art technologies (e.g., micro-emulsions, phospholipids, co-solvent systems, and nanoparticles)
  • Preservative screening, selection, and testing
  • Container/closure compatibility, evaluation and selection studies
  • Short-term accelerated stability studies for formulation selection
  • Optimization of formulations and final selection
  • Process development and scale-up
  • Manufacture of lab-scale and feasibility batches
  • Manufacture of toxicology and clinical batches
