Key Benefits

Our multidisciplinary team offers personalized, friendly and thorough service. From start to finish, we are actively involved in the creation of our formulas to ensure that we have taken into account variables such as:

  • Dosage form
  • Composition and concentration
  • Most suitable vehicle
  • Excipients
  • Chemical compatibilities / interactions
  • Stability of the end formulation
  • Packaging
  • Storage conditions

In addition, all our formulations are scientifically supported by accompanying references and we provide all the necessary tools to carry out mathematical calibrations when working with molds. As well, we provide API conversions (salt-to-base when necessary) and API quantification (i.e. taking into account water content, API potency/activity, etc., when required).

Ultimately, our goal is to provide the most accurate, safe, stable, and therapeutically sound formulations for our clients. It is our mandate and obligation to provide the best possible service to ensure the safety of the patient population. With a reputation that speaks for itself, it is of no surprise how quickly our clients realize the added value we incorporate into their final compounded preparation, translating our success into their own personal success with the patients they treat.
