Creative Biolabs provides professional preclinical formulation development services for a wide range of product types and dosage forms. We offer expertise and advanced technology to help our customers develop the optimal formulation that can precisely match their requirements.

Introduction of Preclinical Formulation Development

Preclinical formulation development, which aims to develop a stable, safety and acceptable formulation based on patient's needs, is an essential component of drug development. It connects the discovery of new drug substances with the successful development of commercial drug products. Formulation development requires the determination of the most appropriate route to achieve effective drug delivery, and the optimization of the characteristics based on the understanding of the bioavailability and processing requirements of pharmaceutical products.

All pharmaceutical products need to be formulated to specific dosage forms, such as oral tablets, capsules, solutions, suspensions, gels, and injections, before delivered to patients. Different dosage forms may require different pharmaceutical technologies, which present technical challenges for formulation development. Therefore, preclinical formulation requires a deep understanding of various formulation parameters, chemical and physical characterization, toxicology, pharmacokinetics, and analytical techniques.
