Rapid Formulation Optimization

Formulation optimization saves time & can increase the potential for success

Many new drugs emerging from the industry pipeline have suboptimal properties and require formulation optimization to achieve their full potential.

Quotient Sciences’ Translational Pharmaceutics® can be applied to design, manufacture and optimize new formulations based on clinical data. This innovative approach of 'Rapid Formulation Development and Clinical Testing' is designed to accelerate formulation optimization and overcome the challenges of conventional development methods.

This approach can be applied to reformulation efforts for both new chemical entities and during life cycle management of existing drugs. It also allows for the unique inclusion of a formulation design space in initial regulatory submissions and clinical protocols. This design space provides you with flexibility to iteratively optimize the quantitative composition of critical-to-performance excipients and dosage strengths relative to clinical performance.

Quotient's rapid 'Make-Test' cycles saves time and money by constantly fine-tuning the formulation with every test

Our approach:

Our team works with you to design a customized program to deliver your objectives in the most timely and cost-efficient way. We have completed more than 125 formulation optimization programs, involving the clinical evaluation of more than 400 formulations.

  • Saves time by reducing the CMC data package needed for your clinical assessments
  • Maximizes flexibility by allowing you to fine-tune formulation compositions
  • Increases potential for success by facilitating decisions based on clinical data
  • Conserves API by moving drug product scale-up from the critical path
