Laboratory Services

Rapid prototyping and evaluation of potential formulation solutions.

Our laboratory capabilities allow us to rapidly design, develop and evaluate prototype formulation options to speed your progress through development – from preclinical presentations, through First in Human studies and on through the clinical phases

Our laboratory activities include:

  • Physicochemical characterisation and preformulation studies
  • Analytical method development and verification
  • Chemical and physical stability studies
  • Preclinical efficacy and safety study formulation development (with a special focus on challenging molecules)
  • First-in-Human formulation prototyping
  • Later phase / commercial formulation prototyping
  • Biorelevant dissolution and development of clinically relevant dissolution tests
  • Enabling formulations and specialist drug delivery technology selection

Seda’s laboratories can be used as a standalone service which delivers the ‘nuts and bolts’ of data generation. Alternatively, it can be combined with our consultancy service to provide the additional advantage of seamless integration of the experimental plan with top end Strategy, Interpretation and Execution which can maximise value build and speed of development.

Marcel has a track record in a range of management and senior scientific positions in industry and academia. Most recently he was a Principal Scientist in Product Design and Innovation at AstraZeneca, where he was responsible for introducing the latest science, new technologies (advanced drug delivery and manufacturing) and product design thinking into the Product Development group.

Marcel has led technical activities, provided project leadership and has managed product development teams responsible for the delivery of drug projects from initial concept design through late stage development, regulatory submission and launch (including advanced drug delivery systems). He has led teams at the drug discovery-development interface, assessing the level of chemistry manufacturing and controls (CMC) technical risk and defining product design strategies in early development. Project experience has covered projects across a range of disease and therapy areas with substantial experience in the oncology field.
