Clinical Trial Manufacturing

Tailored to meet the needs of clinical trial design and clinical manufacturing, focused on producing drugs for use in clinical research.

Clinical Trial Manufacturing (CTM)

Understanding that early-phase clinical testing is a pivotal milestone in the development of your drug product, Quotient Sciences offers clinical trial manufacturing, testing, and certification services designed to meet your individual requirements. Our innovative method of building integrated Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) programs provides a streamlined, flexible approach to drug product supply that reflects your clinical study design and timeline. We understand the time and cost pressures you face during early-phase evaluation and work with you to ensure a rapid, seamless path from development to clinical trial supply.

We understand your need to move rapidly through clinical trial design and development to have built the capability to efficiently scale up drug product manufacturing processes to meet the demands of global clinical and patient supply requirements.

Routes of delivery

Quotient Sciences has extensive experience of developing and manufacturing drug products intended for all major routes of delivery:

  • Oral (solid and liquid forms)
  • Inhaled (pulmonary, nasal)
  • Topical
  • Rectal
  • Parenteral

High-potency active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) handling

Take advantage of our state-of-the-art containment manufacturing for handling high-potency products, which features isolator technology and engineered controls. Our containment classification is based on the Performance-Based Level of Exposure Classification (PBLEC), allowing us to handle levels 1 through to 5 (or down to 0.1 µg/m3) dependent upon the type of compound, dosage form, and batch size.

Phase I, II, and III clinical manufacturing

Quotient Sciences supports all aspects of your drug product supply for Phase I, II, and III clinical studies:

  • Manufacture of all major drug product dosage forms in our US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)- and UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)-approved facilities
  • Packaging, including bottles, blisters, tubs, or tubes
  • Multi-language label design (including translation)
  • Post-study drug return and reconciliation
  • Randomization and blinding
  • Schedule I–IV controlled substance handling
  • Shipment logistics and supply tracking
  • Storage and distribution capabilities (ambient, refrigerated, and frozen)
  • Supply chain management to the clinical site

Aseptic manufacturing of parenteral drug products

Parenteral drug products, which include intravenous (IV), subcutaneous (SC), or intramuscular (IM) routes of administration, require careful planning, thoroughly trained personnel, and dedicated facilities to ensure patient safety. At Quotient Sciences, we have over 30 years of experience in the development of parenteral drug products, from candidate development to clinical manufacturing via aseptic filtration techniques. To find out more about our aseptic manufacturing capabilities, take a look at our latest info sheet.

At our state-of-the-art facilities, we have the expertise to develop, pharmacy compound, manufacture, test, release, and supply a range of formulations (IV, SC, and IM administration) for a variety of clinical study types, including first-in-human (FIH) healthy volunteer studies assessing safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics (PK), as well as radiolabeled formulations for human absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) studies. These services can be utilized as a standalone offering or as part of a fully integrated aseptic drug development program for our customers.

Aseptic manufacturing

Real-time adaptive manufacturing

Quotient Sciences' history and expertise in integrating manufacturing with clinical dosing enables us to manufacture, package, and release products in a matter of days or weeks rather than months. Combined with bright-stock and just-in-time (JIT) approaches, we maximize flexibility around batch size and timing supply to your selected site in response to emerging clinical data or patient recruitment — without affecting the availability of your drug product.

Global clinical trial supplies

We understand the challenges of managing clinical trials at numerous sites across multiple countries. Quotient Sciences can ease the headache of global product supply logistics and accelerate your proof-of-concept timeline. We’ll develop and manufacture your drug product, then seamlessly integrate a flexible packaging, labeling, and distribution strategy that's tailored to your clinical trial.

Managing the packaging, multi-language labeling, and door-to-door logistics, our clinical trial supply team works with you to design the most efficient process for drug product supply to your central hub or clinical sites, including the provision of bulk drug product or individual patient kits.

What Our Clients Say

"Due to the low density and poor flow characteristics of our drug substance, we experienced significant blend and content uniformity issues. By transferring our program to Quotient Sciences, the development team was able to quickly produce demo batches through multiple blending steps and roller compaction using the Gerteis Mini-Pactor. The increase in drug load from 25% to 40% was a significant improvement as we prepared for future Phase II/III trials and this ultimately benefits the patients by reducing the pill burden. We have successfully manufactured several GMP batches of tablets at various doses using a common blend. Quotient Sciences is an outstanding drug development partner with a no-nonsense approach, excellent communication, speed, and robust, easy-to-review documentation, from analytical methods to master batch records."
