A history of flexible, cost-effective formulation development for our clients
At Upperton, we have extensive experience taking research projects from early proof of concept and feasibility through scale up and onto clinical manufacture for a range of common dosage forms. Our team can manage the complexity of your project with a creative application of science, knowledge and experience to help you find the best solution to take your project to first-in-human (FIH) studies and beyond. We’re flexible, fast and affordable; with the ability to start a project within 2 to 4 weeks.
Using our science led approach, and working closely with the client at all stages, we start the development process by defining the project aims and understanding your target product profile.
Early on, we undertake pre-formulation activities, including characterising the active ingredient. Our experienced formulators then select excipients to develop the target dosage form. At all stages, we consider the suitability of the formulation and process for scale-up and ultimate commercialisation. Stability studies are a key component of development work, with extensive analytical techniques available to characterise powders and dosage forms.
Once a suitable formulation has been developed, we will work to get the process to the target scale in our pilot plant, providing confidence in the process before committing to clinical manufacture.
