Formulation & Process Development

Get It Right
from the Start

Drug products in today’s pipeline often include complex delivery profiles, including precise release mechanisms, active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) combinations, and poorly soluble or highly varied APIs. At Tedor, we transparently communicate and collaborate with our clients to address challenges and keep timelines on track. From early clinical phases to commercial scale, we are dedicated to the long-term success of your product.

  • Design, validate, and implement analytical and process methodologies
  • Generation of data required for regulatory filings

Process Development & Optimization Services

Drug product manufacturability challenges often occur in later phases of development as larger-scale production can significantly impact a product’s physicochemical characteristics. The Tedor team works to help our clients avoid these challenges through systematic, risk-based identification and understanding of critical quality attributes (CQAs) and critical process parameters (CPPs). Additionally, Tedor’s fully equipped pilot lab supports robust process design to ensure seamless scale-up. CPPs requiring development and optimization often include:

  • Blending
  • High shear wet granulation
  • Kneading
  • Impeller & chopper speed
  • Binder addition time
  • Fluid bed drying & granulation
  • Inlet air temperature
  • Fluidization air volume
  • Dew point
  • Product temperature
  • Roller compaction, gap, width & pressure
  • Spray rate & volume
  • Inlet air temperature
  • Milling
  • Screen size
  • Compression force & speed
  • Dwell time
  • Coating
  • Spray rate
  • Inlet air temperature
  • Encapsulation
  • Tamping pressure
