Awards & Honors

We develop simple and complex formulations for the regulated market from strategy preparation, tech transfer to NDA, ANDA filing support. We use Design of Experiments and Quality by Design approach to get the best quality product in which quality is inherently achieved by risk analysis and design approach.
