Problem Solving for the Pharmaceutical Industry

We aim to solve any technical problems you face in raw materials, manufacturing processes or finished products, using scientific expertise and wide knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry.

Problem-Solving and Troubleshooting

Whether you are facing product contamination issues, the presence of foreign material in a product, manufacturing and process failures, adulteration of ingredients or product development difficulties, we can support you in solving problems. We investigate structural issues by analysing microstructure and particle size, investigate taints, and help you identify systems and process problems.
