Analytical And Clinical Research Services Analytical And Clinical Research Services

Our analytical and research services evaluate the performance of formulations using a whole range of advanced investigative testing procedures. They’re a hugely important part of our work, forming a valuable foundation for future developments and innovations.

Clinical Formulation Development Services Clinical Formulation Development Services

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.

Clinical IRT Services Clinical IRT Services

Increasingly elaborate international clinical trials demand a smart, streamlined approach and at Sharp we use interactive response technologies (IRT) to provide just that. They’re a powerful, practical tool for accelerating your product’s progress to launch and making the management of your trial much easier for everyone.

Clinical Manufacturing Services Clinical Manufacturing Services

At Sharp, we work closely with you to build an in-depth understanding of your goals, challenges and requirements before we begin our state-of-the-art manufacturing process. This enables us to tailor our clinical manufacturing services to meet your specific needs, making sure we deliver your product on time, to your exact specification, and all ready for a successful launch.

Clinical Over-Encapsulation Services Clinical Over-Encapsulation Services

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 over-encapsulate solid oral dosage forms like tablets or capsules, backfill them with a suitable excipient and manufacture a placebo to match. This gives real scientific credibility to your clinical trial, maintaining the integrity of your double-blind study design.

Clinical Packaging And Labeling Services Clinical Packaging And Labeling Services

At Sharp, we know that clinical studies are growing in complexity, with new geographic regions being introduced and fresh pressures on schedules, budgets and controls. That’s why our clinical packaging team does so much more than simply putting tablets in bottles.

Comparator Sourcing Services Comparator Sourcing Services

As the cost and complexity of global clinical studies increases and the number of biosimilar (or biogenetic) studies continue to rise, the availability of comparator products can make or break your clinical trial’s supply chain.

EU Qualified Person EU Qualified Person

It is a requirement within the EU that all investigational and medicinal products manufactured or imported by organisations holding a MA IMP, have a Qualified Person (QP) to approve and release each batch of IMP for usage in clinical trials.

At Sharp we offer well-established QP services, helping to streamline your product’s journey to trial and market in the EU, as well as giving you and your customers the confidence that your products have been manufactured to the very highest standards.

We offer labelling, boxing and tray packaging solutions for most pharmaceutical dosage forms including solids, semi-solids, liquids, inhalables, injectables and transdermal systems as well.  We also offer capacities for re-labelling and re-packaging activities.

Clinical Storage And Distribution Services Clinical Storage And Distribution Services
