Pre-formulation Services

Thorough Physicochemical Characterization of Drug Substances

A thorough physicochemical characterization of drug substances is essential to achieve a good formulation and a strong dosage form design. Failure during the pre-formulation or formulation stage of a drug product can result in costly delays within a preclinical development program.  Our pharmaceutical development and support team can help with API characterization – both small and large molecule – and accelerate your dosage form development.  Our pre-formulation team will deliver you a plan that will provide a reliable formulation underpinning, and accelerate your drug product’s path to the clinic.

If you’re looking for a reliable third-party laboratory to develop a pre-formulation process, Avomeen is your solution. We provide pharmaceutical pre-formulation studies, API characterization, dosage form design, and all the components you need to accelerate your drug development. With Avomeen’s experience, you can ensure your business avoids unnecessary delays and bring your drug to consumers as quickly and safely as possible.


Our drug pre-formulation can include these tests and services:

  • Raw Material Sourcing
  • Salt Screening & Selection
  • Particle Size Morphology Analysis
  • Polymorph Screening
  • Thermometric Properties
    • DSC
    • TGA
  • Distribution Coefficients
  • Moisture Content
  • Solubility Profile
    • Aqueous
    • pH
    • Organic
  • Excipient Selection
  • Stability of API
    • Heat
    • Light
    • Oxidative stress
    • pH
  • Structure Characterization
  • Dissociation Constants
  • Hygroscopicity & Lipophilicity
  • Surface Tension
  • Powder Flow Testing
  • Polymorphism Studies

Avomeen’s formulation development team can help you develop an ideal dosage form. We are experts at solving complex challenges, including developing formulations for compounds with poor solubility, low bioavailability, short half-life, low permeability, gastric intolerability, and poor physical stability.  Let us develop the proper formulation strategy for you starting with a detailed pre-formulation study.

Drug development is difficult, and you can trust Avomeen to work with you to solve your complex problems and get your drug to market. After our drug pre-formulation, we’ll provide you with the analytical support you need to bring the drug to the marketplace. Our staff is available to answer your questions and review test results with you in a clear, concise manner.
