Formulation development and manufacturingGetting the very best clinical and commercial value from your product means making sure it’s manufactured in a viable, efficient way and its benefits are delivered quickly and effectively.

At Sharp, we’re here to help you overcome development challenges, keep costs down and accelerate your time to market. We’ll work with you to develop a reliable formulation that gives optimal clinical outcomes and can be easily reproduced on a large scale, with excellent stability.

Our experienced team of formulation scientists works with state-of-the-art equipment and laboratory facilities, creating innovative formulations that work incredibly effectively with your active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).
