Formulation

Development of a suitable formulation for lipid-based delivery systems. Custom lipid blends for use in delivery or diagnostic applications.

Clinical and commercial lipids

Our Contract Development and Manufacturing Organisation can take your proprietary lipid from conceptualisation right through to commercialisation and each phase in between directly paralleling your drug development needs. Services include delivery of feasibility material, engineering material suitable for tox studies, and early clinical material. As clinical trials progress, Croda Pharma’s worldwide manufacturing locations offer options for large scale commercial production. 

In addition to our CDMO manufacturing we have a team of synthetic chemists ready to manufacture and deliver custom research products to make your project a success including custom synthesis of reference standards or impurities. With over 150 years of combined lipid synthesis experience, our team can solve most synthesis problems and deliver custom lipids with Avanti’s signature quality. Please contact our synthesis team at customsynthesis@avantilipids.com to discuss the amazing things we can do for you.

The Avanti Formulations team offers custom formulation development including nanoparticle,  cargo-loaded, surface-labelled, PEGylated, and fluorescent lipid formulations or custom lipid blends for use in diagnostic or delivery applications. Supporting this we have a wide range of capabilities including High Potency Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients handling, lyophilisation, homogenisation, extrusion and solvent injection. 

We offer full support along the development path from the R&D stage to the clinical and commercial stages.
