Sharp can over-encapsulate solid oral dosage forms like tablets or capsules, back fill them with a suitable excipient and manufacture a placebo to match.

When you’re making the transition from placebo to active product, we offer a wide range of advanced, agile manufacturing capabilities. These include efficiently producing solid, liquid, cream and ointment products – and many more – in whatever quantities your business needs.

Our manufacturing teams are supported by high-calibre analytical labs at our Bethlehem research facility and partner sites across the EU, enabling constant monitoring of your product’s progress.

Whether you’re looking for a placebo to match your product or designing your trial dose to match an existing comparator, getting a good match can be almost impossible. That’s where we come in, we can support the scientific credibility of your clinical trial, maintaining the integrity of your double-blind study design.
